Adam Cohen’s Leg Routine

Yorker Adam
Cohen was the
light-heavy at
the 2012 USA
 and plans to 
compete at this
 month’s NPC 
Nationals. “I 
like to employ 
a lot of dropsets 
and compound
 sets to really up 
the intensity,” he 
says. He rests for two minutes between each triset or superset. All exercises are pyramided except walking lunges. Cohen trains legs once weekly.
