Shortcut To Size: Phase 1, Week 1, Day 5

Today is all about the quads, hamstrings and core. Time to show your legs and abs some tough love.

Jim Stoppani's 12 Week Shortcut To Size: Ph 1, Wk 1, Day 5 - Legs/Abs

Watch The Video - 13:25

Rest your swollen shoulders. You dominated delts yesterday, so give your upper-body a break and focus on your wheels. That's right: Today is leg day, and leg day means war.

You better pick a suitable soundtrack, because music will make or break your fourth set of squats and deadlifts. This workout is high volume, so make sure the volume in your ears is cranked up to match.

This is your last workout of microcycle 1, which means 12-15 reps per set. Don't forget your finishing rest-pause sets, which should leave you limping. If you're not hobbling out of the gym after this workout, you didn't do it right.

Lay waste to your legs and abs so you can build them up, bigger and stronger, with rest and nutrition. You've got two rest days after this, so make today's workout worth both of them.

Remember to watch all the workout videos this week! They're packed with unique tips and extra info.

Schedule. Track. Succeed.

Workout 4: Legs/Abs

* Shoot for at least 20-30 reps, but if you can do more, continue until reaching failure. If you cannot complete 20 reps, do as many as you can trying to get as close to 20 reps as possible.

I wish I knew what light hamstring stuff I could do. I sprained my knee a few months ago and while my quads are fine, my hammies are still sensitive.

(If your knees are still sensitive:) you could try 'good mornings'. They aren't "light", but won't strain the knees that much.
