What You Can Learn From How This Coach Trains His Legs

Your legs have some big muscles in them which is why most gym leg workouts are designed around moves that let you train with heavy loads: exercises using barbells like the back squat or deadlift, or weights machines such as the leg press, hamstring curl and leg extension machines.

You might think that dumbbells have no place in challenging leg workouts, then, but you’d be wrong. Coach Anthony Carlo posted one of his dumbbell leg sessions on Instagram and explained that “every session isn’t about maxing out.” To complement heavy leg days, Carlo includes a session on single-leg stability in his week, then another on plyometrics and movement.
