This part focuses on the muscles needed for walking, running, jumping and kicking. Weak or injured leg and gluteal muscles can seriously hinder your performance. Both beginning and advanced weightlifters would do well to train these muscles regularly with resistance exercises – to make the muscles stronger and more powerful. The exercises are also suitable for rehabilitation programs, where professionals prescribe training of a certain intensity, size and frequency.
Don’t forget to train the back of the legs, otherwise an imbalance of force distribution in the hamstring and quadriceps can occur. A balanced workout trains both sides of the legs.
