A post shared by Seth Feroce (@sethferoce)

A study from the School of Kinesiology, Auburn University, showed this method could stimulate more significant improvements in Vastus Lateralis, the largest part of the quads [1].

In one of his Youtube videos, the fitness enthusiast explains that every exercise he includes in his leg workouts is chosen to help him achieve the exact look and growth he’s aiming for.

Leg press with high feet placement on the footplate works the glutes and the low feet placement targets the quads [2].

According to Seth, the most recurrent mistake gym-goers make when they train legs is fixating on how much weight they can lift.

He emphasizes the importance of focusing on form over weight. While it's tempting to strive for heavy lifts, perfecting your form will ultimately yield better results in terms of muscle growth and avoiding injury.

“For all my workouts, I like to warm with leg extensions and leg curls. I also like to do the adductor and abductor to warm everything up and push all the blood. If you have a difficult time getting your legs to grow, you need to prioritize the training. You can’t train your legs more than once a week, so whenever you go to train them, make sure to train them very hard but also effectively”.
