This is a FULL Leg Day workout. Leg days for me are long and exhausting. So today's goal was to get in and get out as fast as I can while still being totally exhausted. Every workout I always involve one super heavy compound lift, so we start off with a heavy 5x5 squat. I want you to almost fail on that 5th rep. The rest of the workout is basically little circuits. We have a Quad focused tri-set and a Hamstring focused tri-set.
Below in the notes I have some alternative exercises you can use. I understand some gyms may not have pieces of equipment I am using and training at a public gym you will not always have the ability to jump around to different machines. So grab a piece or two of equipment and then I will usually bring a set of dumbbells over to the machine to complete the circuit. You can also just split the exercises up. I only do this in a circuit style to save me time and it adds a bit of intensity because you are not taking any breaks in between. Makes the work seem harder.
