Beauty & The Beast (Legs)

“Welcome to the devil’s playground.

Beauty & The Beast is a leg workout as tough as they come, and you’ll need to tap into your inner demon to defeat it. It uses just three exercises, each paired with one of my favourite training methods, to take your legs to places they don’t want to go.

This is a sample session taken from my full Beauty & The Beast program, which is in your members area, so if you love this workout you know where you need to go.”


1) LEG EXTENSION x100 (IRON MILE METHOD)
(2 mins rest)
(3 rounds)
*** To perform the Iron Mile method: This is a five-part dropset giving you 100 reps in total. Every time you reach 20 reps, you reduce the weight slightly. Once you reach 100 reps you have completed the Iron Mile, and you get to rest for 2 minutes before doing it all over again (there’s three of ’em!).

2) BARBELL SQUAT x20
(2 mins rest)
(4 rounds)
*** High rep squats will be no joke after that first exercise, so as a guide guys aim for 60kg (more if you can), and ladies aim for 30kg (more if you can).

3) LEG PRESS x50
(90 sec rest)
(3 rounds)
*** The weight selection here should be your body weight (if you weigh 80kg, you lift 80kg). Perform x25 regular reps then move your feet high on the pad and immediately hit x25 more reps for fifty total.
