By splitting my leg workout into two sessions, I can put more focus on creating a better set of wheels. One workout focuses primarily on hamstrings and calves, while workout number two focuses on quads. With any leg day, I start out with at least ten minutes of cardio to warm up.

As with any other body part, I constantly try new machines, movements, or foot placement to further refine my workout, but here is what a current quad day looks like for me.
