Leg Training Tips

As the sport of bodybuilding has grown and evolved, so too have the physiques. In today’s day and age, not having a striated, separated, jaw-dropping set of wheels is like stepping into the ring to trade punches with one hand tied behind your back – you might not go down right away, but you sure aren’t going to be around for very long. Luckily for twenty-two-year-old teen prodigy turned National level competitor Tyler Cohen, he’s packing two heavy-handed haymakers in the leg department that are capable of delivering knockout blows to the competition.

Here are three of Tyler’s top leg training tips to help you add size and build your set of wheels:

• When I train my legs, I like to use a lot of volume. I always superset two movements together, and I usually aim for as high as 40-50 reps between the two movements. If I’m only using one movement by itself, then I’ll start heavy and work my way down to lighter weight with drop sets.

• One thing I try to do now is avoid using the leg press if I can. I would rather use my energy towards different squat variations where I can get a deeper stretch and squeeze on my quads like front squats, back squats, hack squats, or sissy squat. If I do end up using the leg press, I superset it with another movement, but I try never to use it by itself.

• I like to squat at the end of my leg training because I feel it is the best way to tie everything together that I’ve already done before I get under the bar. Squatting takes most of my energy, so I use that as a challenge to see how far I can push after I’ve done all of my other movements.
