So as promised, here is the leg workout I just completed. Oddly enough, this deemed torture on my legs. At my primary gym, we have no machines. Only dumbbells and power racks. So for leg day, we squat, box squat, overhead squat, and squat some more. Since I squatted on Monday, I decided to hit isolated movements today at my secondary gym. Nice change of pace and shock for my leg muscles. Let’s check it out BOOM!
