DAY 52Legs

One thing I will incorporate now is Clean Burn from Kaged Muscle. If you’ve already added a lot of muscle mass on this program and you’re beginning to look ahead to your next goal, you should consider going on a fat-burning program. That’s what I’m doing even as I finish up this 8-Week Muscle-Building Trainer. I’m holding a little body fat, and I want to get started on my next phase. Notice that I’ve already created programs that support this goal if you want to follow one of those after you finish this one.

Clean Burn contains patented ChromeMate (chromium complex), EGCG (from green tea), patented Carnipure (L-Carnitine), and Gymnema sylvestre, among other ingredients. This product will help you level out your blood sugar levels as you drop your calories, preventing hunger as you burn stored fat.

For your workout today, you’ll be training legs with DTPXtreme. I was anxious all morning long because I have so much to do. But it’s important to clear your brain during your workouts. Do what you can to get your head in a good place for your workouts. Try to let go of all that you need to do after your workouts. Get your brain centered on your workout rather than on everything else. Acknowledge your environment and get in touch with your immediate goal, and be thankful you have the opportunity to do that.

The first exercise is barbell squats. You’ll perform 8 sets beginning with 20 reps and a lighter weight. Then you’ll rest for 20 seconds. Adjust the weights and perform 15 reps followed by only 15 seconds of rest, increasing the weight as you’re able. For DTPXtreme it’s important to adhere to the set, rep, and rest scheme over worrying about how much weight you’re using. You’ll be able to complete this entire exercise in about 15 minutes or so, but you will be fried afterward. You may find yourself on the floor sucking for oxygen at the end of this exercise. Also notice that as the weights get lighter at the end my rep pace picks up.

Then I performed hack squats with a wide stance using the same DTPXtreme strategy of 8 sets beginning light with high reps and then pyramiding up in weight for the first four sets, and then decreasing weight on the backside of the pyramid while increasing reps and pace. Reps are slow, controlled, and deep when the weight is heavy.

The third move is seated leg curls, which are a neglected lower-body muscle for many. This move isolates the hamstrings, and I performed another 8 sets of DTPXtreme. Notice that I got out of the seat to stretch my hamstrings between sets even though the rest periods are quite short.

Don’t forget your recovery and your HIIT cardio. You’ve just completed the last sets of your leg workout, but you’re not quite finished with all you need to do on this Trainer series for lower body. The recovery and cardio will help you look even better when you take your final photos in a few days. Today’s cardio was a bike ride on the streets. Remember that I also compete in triathlons, and this provides me with an opportunity to maintain my cardio and aerobic fitness. Choose the form of cardio that works best for you.

TIP

I like to do a little more cardio than most bodybuilders. It allows me to eat more food and protein, and synthesize that into muscle. A lot of people don’t like to do too much cardio because they feel it burns muscle tissue. But cardio actually helps me add muscle so long as I don’t cross that boundary and do too much. For this, I just do steady state—I believe that this will help many people put on muscle mass. Perform steady-state cardio during this 8-Week Muscle-Building Trainer series if it helps you add muscle, but reduce it if it burns muscle tissue.
