This week is all about burning fat! The shred phase is only seven days long, so if you're a cardio hater, just close your eyes and grind it out. No tears. It will be over soon.
Today, you begin this awesome leg-day workout with some pre-exhaust techniques on the leg-extension and leg-curl machines before you work your way into three squat variations. These exercises activate your hamstrings and quads, so when you get to those all-important squats, your legs will already feel fatigued. Be prepared for some pain!
Go heavy enough that you can feel every rep, but not so heavy that you can't complete all the reps. During this phase, you should consider quality andquantity.
