It is possible to pump up the muscles of the legs in the most optimal ratio of the applied efforts in relation to the result obtained. Since ancient times, man has been able to further develop by standing on his “hind legs”, thus freeing his hands for work. Feet have always been very important for human life. The lower limbs were used to catch up with their prey and escape from enemies and predators.
Nowadays, in many sports, fast and strong legs are very important. Running training is one of the main types of training in many military units.
Nearly 50% of all lean body mass is in the leg muscles. Weak and thin legs would not allow athletes to achieve high results. Beginners in gyms often make mistakes and spend little time on leg muscles. As a result, the inflated torso looks very funny against the background of thin hips and buttocks. Insufficiently developed lower limbs significantly hinder the overall athletic development of the body.
Any training starts with careful planning. For leg muscles, 3-4 workouts per week are enough, lasting 1.5 hours. Decide on a training goal. It may be a desire to gain mass or achieve leg relief. If you can’t decide on a goal, look at yourself in the mirror and decide what is more important to you. After trying one technology, evaluate the result and already in the process of training, decide what is more important to you.
Make sure you warm up before every workout. This is necessary so as not to damage the knee joints. You can not immediately give a strong load on the legs. Any exercise should start with several approaches with a light load.
Leg exercises in the gym include two types of classes:
Basic exercises help build strong muscles. Such exercises include overhead and behind the chest squats, machine presses, and single-leg squats.
Isolated exercises contribute to the formation of relief and increase endurance. Such exercises include flexion and extension of the legs on the simulator, lifting the feet from the platform and lunges with weights.
To achieve the best result, try to give your best in training. All exercises must be performed in full and in the correct technique. Add running, cycling and active sports to your gym sessions.
