Juan Morel's two-day leg workout for big quads and thigh muscles
After his second place finish At the New York Pro and the first at the Toronto Pro SuperShow in 201
The Result? Mr. Olympia, the 36-year-old New Yorker, writes his double-split routine of having quads in the morning and thighs on Wednesdays and Saturdays meets in the afternoon.
Divide and Conquer  Morel meets two body parts six days a week, the first at 11 o'clock and the second at 17 o'clock. We have our legs on Wednesdays and Saturdays, on Mondays and Thursdays chest and arm e, on Tuesdays and Fridays, back and shoulders. He says that this split "helps to release more natural growth hormone in the body."
Plates Piled High
Morel becomes light while he trains his legs, but that's a relative term. In leg presses, he is still at 1,500 pounds in his last set, while he heaps up to 600 on hacks. "Pressing down presses the pump in the quads, so I'm up to 20 reps," he says.
"At the end of morning and afternoon leg work, I'll do four sets of standing calves "He will achieve up to 20 to 30 repetitions per set, performing a full exercise on each repetition to promote the recruitment of the muscle fibers through the thick gastrocnemius muscle that dominates the back of the lower leg." 19659010] No
