As the title entails, this is a lower body workout guided towards putting lean muscle mass on the lower body (especially the glutes). The calories in this weeks meal plan are a little higher and play with carb timing nicely to ensure caloric intake to be stored as energy instead of fat. There are only 4 different exercises in this routine but it should take about an hour and a half. It uses Charles Poliquins’ german volume training, which is basically tempo training 10 sets of 10 with planned rest.
A1. BB Glute Bridges Shoulders Elevated 10×10 4-0-x-0 tempo (4s down, no pause on bottom, explode up, and no pause on the top)
A2. Quadruped Band Resisted Hip Extension 10×10 4-0-2-0
B1. Standing Single Leg Calf Raises 3×15 each 3-0-2-0
B2. Hanging Straight Leg Raises 3×15 3-0-1-0
