AST Sports Science Maximum Overload Training Principles - Sample Leg Day

  1. 4-6 reps per set. Increase weight if you exceed 6 reps.
  2. Train each body part once weekly.
  3. Use compound movement exercises.
  4. Low volume. 2 - 3 sets per exercise.
  5. Take 1 week off after every 8-10 weeks of training.
  6. Warm-up efficiently without inducing fatigue.
  7. Keep cardio short and intense (16-20 minutes in duration).
  8. If you perform cardio and weight training in the same session, do cardio after weights and not before.
