When I made the switch over to calisthenics, I was worried that my leg strength would suffer. After all, I was using my heaviest weights to train my legs so if there’s one area of the body that demands heavy weight training then it would be the legs right?
My to my pleasant surprise my leg strength greatly improved over the first few months of training. I didn’t suffer any set backs, but rather experienced nothing but further progress.
In this video, I highlight some of the exercises I use to gain strength and muscle in my legs plus some of the reasons why the exercises work so damn well.
