Leg Day

No catchy/punny, title. There’s no getting around leg day. You just have to do it.

Something to keep in mind – the higher rep range. Your leg muscles are bigger, stronger, and have many more fibers than any other muscle group in your body. So, it’s important to have more reps so that you are exercising as many muscle fibers as possible.

I also like to do some sprints at the end of my workout. Sprinting demands so much from your legs that it would be foolish to ignore such a difficult endeavor. Enjoy.
