How do I get motivated for leg day!?
Listen here daisy; While you sit on your lazy ass thinking about how you’re gonna get motivated for leg day, others out there are hitting the gym and getting done what needs to be done. We call those individuals, beasts!
First of all, if you’re seriously serious about getting ripped, getting big, losing weight, being stronger, better, leaner, then leg day is your holy grail. You can train your upper body all you want, but let me tell you something milksop; if you skip leg day or don’t step up your game when hitting that squat rack, the only gain you’re ever gonna see is watching late night HBO porn while eating sweet potato pie!
There is that one guy in every gym who looks like a beer bottle turned upside down. The one who never really wears shorts, because he skipped one too many leg days. We have a name for those guys and it’s called “chicken legs”. You do not want to be called chicken legs, trust me! I also like the terms Spaghetti Legs, Moonrise Kingdom, Cracker Barrel, Craven Cottage, Yellow Belly, Funky Pole, Limb Daniel, Farmers Lamp, Ashton Kutcher, etc.
But enough ranting about people who don’t train their legs. It’s not their fault they’re all cream puff.
Now let’s talk about the benefits of leg day. As you might already have guessed, by targeting our legs we are in fact hitting the biggest muscle groups in our bodies. Muscles that can take a bigger beating, which in return would boost the metabolism significantly. Muscles that produce larger quantities of testosterone, which in return lead to bigger gains. Whether you want big daddy legs or up your upper body gains, training legs is catalyst for innovation.
If you can walk straight after a leg workout, then you didn’t do it right. If you can walk the next day, you didn’t do it right. Truth is, only a token of the gym population actually do it properly. That’s what separates the big gainers from the ones who go to the gym everyday for 2 hours, then go home and complain they don’t see any change.
By the time you’re done reading this, you will have not one, not two, but three killer leg workouts that will tear up any fat, build twice the muscle and chisel your legs like an ancient Roman warrior sculpture.
Bottom line is, if you’re motivation is being the best you can be, whether that means losing weight or getting the beach body you’ve always wanted, you don’t need any special motivation for leg day. That alone should be enough to spur you on to hit the gym and get it done. And honestly, if you do it right, 30 minutes is all it takes. Get in, get it done, and get out!
LEG DAY 1:
Hop on, hop off! Choose a cardio machine; (Elliptical, Treadmill, Bike, Stepper)
5 mins cardio – Hop off!
20 jump squats
20 weighted lunges
Hop back on the cardio and repeat 5x!
This workout will make sure you get 25 mins on a cardio machine + a killer leg workout! Remember to limit your rest period. Oh and, if you’re not a true beast, DO NOT ATTEMPT! This workout is only for the hungry and the ballsy. Go for it! If you dare…
LEG DAY 2:
This is a leg circuit! Choose 5,6 different leg exercises and perform them in order without rest until you’re done with all. Rest 1 minute, and repeat! 5x!
LEG DAY 3:
Weighted Squats + Box jumps 4x
Walking Lunges + Leg Press 4x
Hamstring Curls + Leg Extensions 4x
Load up on pre workout Creatine and BCAA’s! Post workout protein + 1 baked potato!
Oh and by the way, if you want bigger arms, do arms and legs the same day. If you want a bigger chest, do chest and legs the same day. Bigger shoulders? Shoulders + Legs! The more muscle groups work, the more testosterone your body produces.
Testosterone = Gains
Do you dare? Homies!
