Thank you lifting 🙏🏼 My legs are the hardest things to grow. Especially with chronic lower back issues and a previous sciatic nerve injury that I have to be careful with that flares up! I always put my health first with lifting.
That being said- what has truly made the difference for me with legs has been finding the exercises that work for ME and continuing to push the weight/have progressive overload for growth to occur! Not all exercises were made for everyone's biomechanics- example- sumo deadlifts murder me and always cause hip pain! And I don't feel my glutes in lunges. Everyone is different so my tip is to focus on exercises that work for YOU. ➖My top choices:
Glute bridges and hip thrusts, Deadlifts (Romanian, stiff legged), good mornings, hamstring curls, Squats (all kinds), split squats, leg extensions, leg press (both legs and single), kneeling and straight leg kickbacks, outer hip abduction, curtsy lunges
Another big tip- STICK TO SIMPLE! You don't need to do 5 billion versions of kickbacks!! Stick to the basics, work on mind muscle connection, have patience, and FUEL YOUR BODY. Muscle needs food. Muscle needs recovery.
Summing it up- Progressive overload of exercises that work for YOU, eating to grow, and PATIENCE😊🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 2013 to 2017.
