Building legs without squats!

by One.lifter

Try this technique with a leg press machine instead. Take the weight you would normally do with two legs, you know the weight you can do with a full range of motion (I know you are not one of those guys who loads the leg press up with 1000 lbs and then does a six inch rep, right?) and cut it in half. Now do 8-10 reps with ONE leg, with no rest continue with the other leg, back and forth for three sets, and don’t lock out on top.

Once each leg has completed three sets, without resting, using the same weight, with both legs lower the leg press down as low as you can go. This is the starting position for the last set. From this position, push the leg press up about 8-12 inches, don’t lock out, and then lower. Do this short range of motion until failure, usually 25-30 short reps…let’s see you walk after this!
