Branch Warren's Leg Workout

Type: Single Muscle Group

Days per week: 1 day
Sex: Male & Female
There was only one Tom Platz. Mention the name to any bodybuilding fan and immediately he or she will conjure up a mental image of the greatest legs of all time. Since The Golden Eagle walked offstage for the last time almost thirty years ago, we have yet to see his equal in terms of freaky quads, hams, and calves. But today’s generation has its own king of legs in the form of Branch Warren. Just as the unreal thighs of Platz amazed and inspired a generation to take their own legs past what was previously considered possible, so too has Branch motivated legions to blast their quads and hams through the pain barrier and into glorious enormity. Be honest – how many of you have stared intently at a few insane photos of the freaky Warren wheels before heading off to the gym on leg day, just to get fired up and ensure a blood and guts, balls to the wall workout? I know I have.
