Desire Big Legs? Create giant sets!

Desire Big Legs? Create giant sets!


The legs serve as the framework for your entire body. Having said that, the legs make up more than 50% of the body's muscle mass. This is why it's unusual that many athletes nearly always forego leg days in favor of working on their chest and arm muscles for the beach.

Despite genetic freaks, the legs require a lot of effort to develop to their peak capacity because they are such a large muscle mass. Many athletes discover that their legs respond much better to volume work than smaller muscle areas like the chest, shoulders, biceps, or triceps. Speaking of volume, the exercise plan that follows will help you tone your upper legs, push past growth barriers, and encourage new development.

Giant sets are the key to this exercise. A huge set is actually three to four sets, each with 10 to 12 repetitions, of four separate exercises targeting the same muscle area. When executing a large set, switch between exercises fast, only allowing your worked muscle group to rest for 10 to 15 seconds at a time.

The Laws

You will perform one exercise, pause for no longer than 10 to 15 seconds, and then immediately move on to the next exercise.

It will be one big set with four exercises performed consecutively. You can start a new huge set after a maximum of two to three minutes of rest following the completion of one giant set. You will perform three working big sets after one warm-up set.
