10 WEEKS TO FIT-DAY 8: Legs

Workout:

A dropset is a training technique used when you finish your standard set and then drop the weight right away by 20-25 percent and rep to failure. A double dropset means you drop the weight two times.

A superset, is going from one exercise to the next without resting.  You can rest once you have finished both exercises back-to-back.

1-Leg Press-Dropset: 2 dropsets of 25-35 reps per drop

SuperSet: (2&3)

2-Smith Machine Squat: 5 sets of 10-15 reps
