Bakhar Nabieva Workout For Killer Legs
Squats – 3 Sets 12 Reps
It shouldn’t be a surprise to see squats on this list. Squats are a complete leg builder. If you have skinny legs and want to add size to them, squats are your best bet. Squats are a compound (multi-joint) exercise and will help in shaping your quads, hams, and glutes.
Squatting will add size to your legs and will make you stronger at other exercises as well. The range of motion is the key while squatting. ‘Ass to the grass’ is the way to go while squatting. Bakhar uses 80 kgs for warming up, we don’t expect the same from you.
2. Romanian Deadlifts – 3 Sets 12 Reps
Bakhar is big on training hamstrings. Hamstrings were her weakest muscle group when she started working out. Deadlifts are a compound movement and recruit multiple muscle groups.
While performing the Romanian deadlifts, maintain a slight bend in your knees and keep your back arched. While on the concentric movement, push back your glutes so all the tension is on your hamstrings.
3. Walking Lunges – 3 Sets 12 Reps
Walking lunges are an incredibly effective exercise at building the tear drop in your quads. Nabieva uses a barbell while performing the lunges. You don’t need to take long strides while performing this exercise, keep your strides normal.
While performing a lunge, the quad of your rear leg should be parallel to the calf of your front leg. Your front leg’s quad and calf should be forming a right angle. Your rear leg should be only an inch from the floor at the bottom of the movement.
4. Unilateral Hamstring Curls – 3 Sets 12 Reps
Bakhar Nabieva loves doing the unilateral hamstring curls. Hamstring curls on a machine is an isolation exercise. Using a machine helps in maintaining constant tension on the muscle throughout the exercise.
Unilateral hamstring curls involve training one leg at a time. Unilateral exercises are great at fixing muscle imbalances and building strength. You can even have a better mind-muscle connection with your hamstrings while doing the unilateral curl variation.
5. Hack Squat Good Mornings – 3 Sets 12 Reps
Hacks squat good mornings are one of Bakhar’s favorite exercises. Performing good mornings on a hack squat helps in isolating the hamstrings as compared to performing them with free weights.
You need to make sure you don’t put on too much weight on the machine while performing this exercise. Keep the reps slow and deliberate and squeeze the living hell out of your hams at the top of the movement.
