Warm up

First of all you really wanna warm up your legs because this is gonna be a tough one so start by performing

3 Sets of High Rep Leg Extensions

Leg Press with Feet Higher on the Plain.

  • Place your feet high up on the platform so that when you lower the weight your knees come into your chest.
  • You will notice a short range of motion but you will only hit your quads.
  • Be sure to push from your heels and be careful of back rounding.
1) Perform 4 Sets of 15 reps
2) Increase the weight  and perform 12 reps
3) Increase the weight again and perform 12 reps
 4) Increase the weight again and perform  8-10 reps
5) Remove a couple of plates and perform 12 reps
6) Remove a couple more plates and perform as many reps as you possibly can until you achieve failure

Smith Machine Squats with toes directly under the bar

  • Yes this will look weird but you are trying to Simulate a Front Squat.
  • Don’t go too heavy but make sure that you go all the way down.
  • Warm up until you get to a weight where you can perform 12 reps.
Perform 3 sets of 12 reps. All using the same weight.

Hack Squats

1) Perform a set with as many reps as possible till failure.
      1 set should only be needed but do 2 if you didn’t gauge the weight properly.
2) Perform 8 reps in sled then get out and do  20 Bodyweight Squats
3) Drop the weight, perform 8 Reps in Sled then get out and do 40 Bodyweight Squats
4) Drop Weight 8 reps in Sled then get out and do 60 Bodyweight Squats

Leg Extensions  7 Sets 15 reps

  • Each rep is done with a 1 second squeeze and a controlled negative. 
  • Rest 15 – 20 seconds between sets. Just enough to get up and shake it out.
  • If needed the weight may be lowered once you can’t reach the 15 reps.

 This workout may sound crazy… so I triple dare you to do it right. If you survive you are a true warrior and on the way to some seriously shredded quads. Best of luck
