SQUAT

SETS: 3 REPS: 10–15

“I try to do squats every leg workout. Space your feet shoulder-width apart. Turn your toes out slightly. I like to go below parallel, for the deep stretch, as well as for the contraction of the glutes and quads as I power out of the bottom on my way back to the starting point.”

LEG PRESS

SETS: 3 sets REPS: 8–10

“I use rest-pause with leg presses. I like the leg press because I don’t have to stabilize myself, which helps me to dig deep. I start with a weight where I will fail at 10 to 15 reps. I do a set, rack the weight, and count off ‘one Mississippi’ before I follow with one set of 10 to 15 and a third set if I can make it to eight.”

STIFF-LEG (ROMANIAN) DEADLIFT

SETS: 3 REPS: 10–12

“I use dumbbells or a barbell. Dumbbells give me a freer range, and my arms can move a little bit, which helps if my wrists are sore. I’ll go with a barbell when I want to use more weight.”
