Here's a scenario for you; you want to build bigger legs and you only have access to a few pairs of dumbbells. What do you do? Well...
There are a couple of key issues with the typical leg workout. First, most leg workouts only work in the sagittal plane, but want to make sure we’re also including exercises that work in the transverse and frontal planes. Second, we want to make sure we’re working ALL the muscle groups including smaller ones. Don’t let anyone mislead you. While the Squat is a GREAT exercise, you can’t develop all the muscles optimally with JUST that exercise.
Leg workouts can be downright crippling if you attempt them with bad knees! This leg workout contains carefully selected leg exercises that are closed-chain and functional with is a high degree of athletic carryover. Great care is taken to keep the force shifting down and back as opposed to down and forward to make sure that the knee joint doesn't take on unnecessary strain and stress.
