A lot people that have a hard time building their legs (quads, glutes, hamstrings), they always say that the "muscle group is stubborn". No, no, no my friends, if your form is off, or you lack range of motion, train with improper tempo, and train in 1-5 rep ranges they're not going to grow! -
Continuing on, if you're lacking intensity they will not grow - what I mean by that is: let's say your goal is 12-15 reps on the leg press, you hit the number you set out to do, and stop there, but PROBABLY could have done more reps, you're cutting yourself short of fully making use of that set.
If you can say to yourself, "I could have done more reps", you should either 1 - increase weight (if you could still do the same rep range), 2- decrease tempo, 3- increase reps at the same weight.
The majority of people lack the push to go past their limits (for legs especially). -
Lastly, many people neglect improving their mobility. Mobility is a must! How could you possibly train your body and expect it to grow in short ranges? #FoodForThought #AllRepsMatter #FitlifeAthletics
