Bad Information about
Leaning Your Legs
There is a lot of bad information out there and many times you waste your time sifting through the junk to find something quality. Should you include cardio or not? Should you incorporate heavy or light weight training? Should you engage in low or high repetitions?
These are some of the factors I will cover to help make your leg transformation possible.
Heavy Training vs. Light Training for Leaning Your Legs
To build muscle you need to do heavy resistance training in the 4 to 6 repetition range to failure. Lighter weight and repetitions in the 15 to 20 range will build more endurance and strengthen the joints. Both of these tactics can be used to their advantage.
Being that you already have thicker thighs, you will be better off alternating heavy, moderate, and light training with a variety of repetitions to target all the muscle fibers, from strength to endurance. This also serves as constant shock to keep the legs responding.
