February 16, 2012 Workout Routine- High Rep Training with Legs


Muscle Prodigy is committed to helping you with your fitness goals. You need to hit the gym often and hard. However, sometimes it gets overwhelming with what to do in the gym. We're here to break down a structure for you that will include a detailed script of exactly what you should be doing in the gym each day. That's right...every Monday we will post the schedule for the week, meaning that you will have advance notice of exactly what days you should be hitting the gym, which muscle groups you will be training, and which days you have off to give your body adequate rest. Every single morning, we will post the routine of the day, so you know exactly what to do while in the gym.

These routines are exactly what the founders of Muscle Prodigy do, so you know that you are in good hands. We will always stay committed to provide you with tough workouts, but we will never overtrain you like most other programs do. We also show you exactly how to perform the exercises with our before and after pictures and our instructional videos, in which we demonstrate the exercises and walk you through them. Be sure to check back every single day for your structured workout program!

Often times, you see many people in the gym doing reps of 8-12 thinking that those reps are enough to stress the muscles to grow. While this may be true most of the time, you most likely will not see results if you continually do the same amount of reps every single workout session. Think of your body as an active organism that has a tolerance level for anything you do including lifting weights. Your body will get used to doing the same amount of reps each time and it won’t stimulate the muscles to grow properly. While switching around your workout routine may help shock the muscles to new growth, it is often the mundane rep range that will prevent true progress. This week, you are going to focus on doing high reps when you train, even doing up to 50 reps for a set at times. Doing this will inevitably get you stronger and develop more lean muscle mass. 






For Thursday, February 16, 2012, you will do high-rep training with your legs. As your reps decrease, make sure you increase the weight (and vise versa).




1) Barbell Back Squat

20 reps, 40 reps, 50 reps, 20 reps


Stand up with feet shoulder-width apart and a barbell across your back (across your shoulders and traps holding with your arms) Toes should be pointed forward and outward a little bit. Stick your  butt out a little and then drop it to the floor sitting backward until the top of your thighs (not the bottom) are parallel with the floor. Weight should be shifted onto your heels and never your toes. Head should remain to look forward, (not up and never down) and back should remain straight throughout the entire movement. Drive your feet through the ground and explode upward to return to the original position.




 

 

 

2) Barbell Front Squat

20 reps, 40 reps, 50 reps, 20 reps


Stand up with feet shoulder-width apart and a barbell across the front of you (It should rest upon your clavicle and on your shoulders with your arms crossed over it giving it some extra support). Toes should be pointed straight forward. Stick your  butt out a little and then drop it to the floor sitting backward until the top of your thighs (not the bottom) are parallel with the floor.  Head should remain to look forward, (not up and never down) and back should remain straight throughout the entire movement. Weight should be shifted onto your heels and never your toes. Drive your feet through the ground and explode upward to return to the original position.







3) Leg Press

20 reps, 40 reps, 50 reps, 20 reps


Sit on the machine with your back and head against the padded support. Line up your feet in the middle of the platform about hip width apart and your heels flat. Push up and release the safety latch and slowly bring the weight down to where your legs form an angle of about 90 degrees at the knee. Push the weight back up, keeping your back and head planted against the padded support at all times.  


 

 

 

4) Barbell Step Up

3 sets of 20 reps (each leg)

 

Hold a Barbell while resting the bar upon your traps. Step up with one leg onto a bench in front of you. Step up with the other leg so that both feet are on the bench. Return back down by carefully stepping one foot down behind you and following with the other foot.



 

 

 

5) Leg Extension

3 sets of 30 reps


While seated, insert both legs into the pad so that your shins (right above the foot) are resting against the pad. Extend your legs outward by driving them upward. Squeeze your legs at the top holding it there for a brief moment. Slowly lower the weight to the original position without letting the weights hit the bottom.




 

 

 

6) Lying Hamstring Curl

3 sets of 30 reps


Lying face-down against the padded machine, insert both legs into the pad to rest your legs upon it. Bend at the knee to raise the weight by pulling it upward so that the pads touch your hamstring. Squeeze the hamstring muscle at the top. Lower the weight slowly to the bottom to return to the normal position without letting the weight hit the bottom of the rack.




 

 

 

7) Seated Calf Raises

5 sets of 50 reps


While seated adjust your legs so that your thighs are under the pads and just your toes are on the platforms below (not your heels). Drive up using your calves by pushing up with your toes. Hold at the top and squeeze your calf muscles. Lower the weight slowly by bringing your heels back to the ground.

This is a simplified workout routine that just shows you the number of reps and sets. However, there are many variables that go unaccounted for in this program that we explain fully in our MP45 Programwhich will get you more ripped in only 45 days because it hinges on the idea of the type of intensity you must achieve while in the gym. Also, the battle with your physique is won in the kitchen, not just the gym. MP45 includes the most detailed workout program and meal plan for all 45 days, including 300 pages of nutritional and training science depicting exactly why MP45 is so effective. These workouts are very basic ideas of what we do in the gym, which will tremendously help your results, but nutrition is actually responsible for 80% of the way you look. Also, the type of reps you are completing within your set is very important, which is why MP45 is so effective. We explain how to exactly achieve the pump during your workouts and how to completely exhaust your muscle to expedite the process of it recovering to grow back in half the time.
