High-Volume Leg Workout | Smash Leg Day with The Harrison Twins

 

“A few years ago we did have a weakness…definitely our legs! That’s why these last 2-3 years we’ve really concentrated on them and smashed them in volume workouts which has really brought them out.” Says Owen


Ditch the ego, perfect the form…

“On Leg day I’m similar to my brother – I do have a love/hate relationship with squats, sometimes I go in the gym and smash them out and other days I do struggle because I have one leg stronger than the other.” SayMyprotein weightsbelts Lewis.

“We don’t put a ridiculous amount of weight on the bar, we’re not trying to overload the bar – we’re trying to concentrate on contraction, time under tension, correct tempo – to gain aesthetics, to gain lean muscle.” Says Owen.

Recommended: Weights belt 


Exercise #1: Superset (Squats/Vertical Leg Press)

(4 sets of 10, 10 reps)

“Our first exercises of this leg workout, was a superset – Squats, 10 reps and Vertical leg press, 10 reps – four sets. We did this because squats and vertical leg press are some of the best exercises for the legs and really get your quads popping.”

TOP TIP: No Vertical Leg Press? Use the Smith Machine as an alternative.
