Pretty Nice Leg Workout

Saw this on Rob Wilkersons facebook page. definitely planned out to use more weight and not so much reps
squat 6x2
pause squat 3x5
dumbbell split squats ( I do those they’re not in the workout )
hamstrings 3x10
calves 5x20

I find it interesting that a powerlifter would train calves. Any idea why?

Probably just cares about looks too. I dunno.

Knee and ankle stability… I’m not entirely sure.

I somehow doubt that.

EDIT: And I mean no disrespect in that. He’s a big man.

Powerlifters don’t train calves? That is news to me.

yeah just to have like proportional legs, idk why but I do calves and forearms a lot before I leave the gym, just think it looks cool

Yeah haha. Good for overall stability and also is a good dynamic stretch for the whole lower leg.

He also uses this with his high school football players if I’m not mistaken

yup his football players use I think he said he’s got 10 kids deadlifting over 400. Must be nice to have your trainer be one of the strongest guys on earth

Peri-workout nutrition 4 maximum gainz

How much does he weigh? No disrepsect obviously, but he makes Vasily Alexeyev look thin.

To the calves thing: Why not? Has anyone ever made a body part stronger and it hurt progress? Strong is strong.

pretty sure he’s 5’11 430lbs
