You walk with your legs into the gym, right? Don't you think you should give them more attention? We don't like the "next morning" feeling either, but having a good foundation to work off starts with your legs.
Athletes usually train their legs at least twice a week while focusing on every muscle group in the leg department.
Try these workouts to give your legs a tremendous workout:
-4x10 Double Lunges.
-4x8 Leg Press with Hamstring Curls.
-4x8 Close Stance Squats with One-legged lunge.
-4x8 Dead lifts with Standing calf raises.
-4x8 Sumo Squats with Side Step ups.
-4x8 Reverse Hip Abductor with Legs extension.
-4x8 One-legged Squats with Lying calf raises.
For the best workout, warm up with high reps and lower weight. Ease yourself into heavier weights until you reach your max. You should see yourself improving each month.
If you are looking to put size on your legs, stick to heavy weight with lower reps. If you are toning, stick to low weight and higher reps.
