Chelsea's Leg Saver


9 weeks   |   $29   |   Web, Text, Excel

This is a cycle intended for athletes who can't manage frequent or intense squatting; it uses relatively low-intensity squats twice weekly. It also loads for only 2 weeks before unloading, so it's good for athletes who can't manage longer burdening periods.

"Excellent program for those dealing with any lower body issues while still maintaining leg strength and increases numbers little by little. I was also recovering from a shoulder issue going in to this program and I hit a comfortable 10kg push press 3RM within a week and a half!" - John E.

Good For:
  • Lifters who need to squat infrequently
  • Lifters who need shorter burdening periods
  • Overhead strength & stability
  • Competition lift improvement relative to squat strength
Notes: Some exercises use feel to determine weights; avoid grinding reps or failure

Really excited about this program but I only workout 4 days a week what days should.my focus be on?
Lily - If you're only available to train 4 days a week, you can always spread out the exercises on one of the days to the other days to still get all of the exercises in. Does that makes sense?
