Generation Iron Branch Warren Leg Day

Get those legs in fighting form with Branch’s workouts.

A perennial contender, Branch Warren is no stranger to pushing himself to the limits of the human body in order to achieve the ultimate physique. The hardnosed Texan has always found himself within the top ten of nearly all of his Olympia appearances. He’s a fan favorite with the kind of blue collar every-man work ethic that anyone, rival and observer alike, will have to respect.

The man known as The Quadrasaurus posses some of the most monstrous legs in bodybuilding history. If you’re a fan or just a recreational bodybuilder looking to put on some size and definition on your legs – then taking a look at Warren’s routine couldn’t hurt your chances of achieving that end.

As his nickname would suggest, Warren’s forte is clearly his quad and overall leg development. The bodybuilding great uses some classic exercises coupled with an undying motivation to push his workout to the extremes. Warren hasn’t given up on his goal of being the Olympia champion and he’s not going to throw in the towel anytime soon. He’s too much of a fighter for that.
