Vince DelMonte: Lee has got me into doing some leg exercises, that's trying the dumbbell. I like most guys do we hate training our legs but you got to do it, really get them really going to burn up a lot of calories, get you hungry, get them your tablets and go so. Again, problem here is we are limited to the kind of equipment we have, so Lee is going to improvise here, want to show you. Lee Hayward: And this is something you probably never heard of before but it's actually quite kind of a power lifting. And what we are doing is we have here set up a little pulley cable. Normally you do this with a freeway -- bell, you know, play like in a squat rack or even after four. Here we're going to improvise with things. So Vince, you can come around this side. How this works? I am hold the wire and crisping my elbows and do squat. It's kind of like doing a front squat variation. Just check out. Vince DelMonte: That's good. Lee Hayward: This is circuit's play. And again that kind of works the entire legs, quads, hamstrings, hips. Now I am going to show you another variation here. Do stiff leg dead lift with the hamstrings. Same -- this thing anyway. Again normally use a barbell with this but we're going to use the cables. Vince DelMonte: Looks interesting. Look how Lee is keeping his back flat, his legs grilled to the floor all the weight on his heels, getting a nice stretch, stretch, stretch and go. Stretch and go, good. Get your gluteus, hamstring working. Lee Hayward: We have limited gym here, we're still make and do and getting in a good leg workout. Vince DelMonte: Yeah, It's good. When we had back, we had back the new thing there, we had back, we're just going to carry off wherever we left of. No reason to progress when you take time off. As of anything, you come back recharged, refreshed, then you go hard again because you got a little break, some variety and so motivated you hit the weights hard again. Lee Hayward: You want to give a shot at this? Vince DelMonte: Sure, sure. Hey guys, I'll do some functionality of some of these exercises, instead of doing something sitting just on the legs. Lee Hayward: Here he goes, there, that's awesome. So now he is doing like a squat upright row, working more muscle groups. And the key with training legs here, you know, lot of guys think you don't need to train your legs because you are always covered up with your pants or whatever but the fact is this is going to help speed up the growth in your upper body as well. Legs are the major muscle group here to stimulate anabolic hormones, like testosterone and growth hormone so this is really critical here if you want to build a big body all over. Vince DelMonte: Alright, so after you did the squat rows, we're going to do a single leg squat row, get much more functional, get the gluteus working. Lot of guys have great advice, but they got no near muscles which should be, the muscles which you can see so. We're going to do single leg squat with the row. Lee Hayward: Here you go. Now this really works to stabilize your muscles. I'll get it from this angle for you to see it. That's awesome. A lot of stabilize your muscle here. And a great thing about this exercise too, it'll balance our both legs. So if you have one leg stronger than the other, by doing single lame exercises like this, overtime you're going to balance out that muscle development. And if you have two is okay to you, touch the tow down to balance yourself. Again, what we're doing these exercises back to back with little or no rest. It is really demanding here. Great. Vince DelMonte: So you would have gone crazy with the weight but lot of guys have no activation in their gluteus so they can squat so they can go all the way down. You got to switch those muscles on so that single leg work is really, really good. So, one more, which is pretty functional, get the body working. We seem to do this a lot of times. I love rotations so. That sets me up, watch over my shoulder, then I woul
