This routine is a burner, but by now you and your hamstrings know it well. In fact, those muscles might be terrified, and it's up to you to make sure it lives up to their greatest fears.

Day 76: Hamstrings and Calves

Machine Leg Curl

2 sets of 8-12 reps, no rest between legs. Once one leg hits failure, switch to other, and then switch back, then switch back again. So you might get 8-12 reps per leg, then another 5-6, then another 3-5. Those three segments count as one set.
