Throwback Thursday: Phil Heath Doing 37 Sets For Legs Leading Up To The 2015 Olympia

by Brandon

People looking to add mass to their frames are generally always in search of a workout plan that could quickly get them to their goals. Looking for a magical workout routine, that can serve as a shortcut and get them to their goal in half the time. Sorry to burst your bubble but in the world of weight training there is no shortcut, all you have is good, old-fashioned hard work.

You can be following the world greatest workout plan but if you don’t give it all you got, you just aren’t going to get the results you are looking for. In order to obtain those gains you envision you must bring a fierce intensity to your workouts each and every day of the week, regardless of the muscle group you are working out. And yes that includes legs. If you continue half-assing your way through your leg routine, guess what you are going to get in return? Half-assed results that’s what.

To give you glimpse into the training intensity required to achieve greatness we have the first of a three-part leg training video from 5x Olympia Phil Heath. In which despite the fact that he was only five weeks out from the 2015 Olympia, found a way to push himself through over 30 sets of leg training. If “The Gift” hasn’t earned the right to slack his way through a leg day, what makes you think you have? Stop being soft and get yourself under that squat rack!
