Recently I've been training for a CPAT (Fire Fighter physical fitness test) so I've been trying to tear up my legs for the past couple of months in the gym.
As of a few weeks ago I passed my CPAT, but I figured I should keep building my legs up pretty good. In the past legs were something I stayed away from since I was in the Army and they always had to be ready for a 12 mile road march or a 10 mile run. Big, bulky legs aren't exactly good for either of those. Well, I figured now that I don't have to worry about that I should keep training my legs up. I'd been doing a variety of different exercises from squats, stiff legged dead lifts, to deep squats, to hack squats, to lunges, leg extensions, leg curls, etc. etc.
Yesterday, I decided to change it up and do some good mornings. If you don't have them as part of your leg workout rotation, I suggest you add it. They provide some serious hamstring isolation and my legs haven't been this sore in quite a while. Anybody else a big fan of of these or even anti- Good mornings? I don't think I have to explain the benefits MMA wise of strong hamstring muscles.http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Hamstrings/BBGoodMorning.html
Also, if anybody else knows some good leg muscle workouts that I haven't mentioned here feel free to share your thoughts
