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.
One of the largest muscle groups of the lower body, the glutes support compound movements like squats and deadlifts. Do you feel like you're doing all the things you should be, but nothing is helping with glute growth?
Is your butt the one part of your body that’s lagging? Maybe you have a flat butt but you’re also pretty weak in your squat game. Your glutes are one of the most important muscle groups on your body because they are the powerhouse behind some of the most popular exercises. Want to deadlift? You’ll need to hip hinge. And what drives a hip hinge? Your glutes!
If you’ve been wondering how to deadlift properly, I’m going to help you with that. What I want to do is provide you with an official deadlift form checklist that breaks down this exercise step-by-step so you can confidently stand in front of the barbell.
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.
