There’s nothing like a good leg day to bring together your physique. A bodybuilder with poor leg development won’t be much of a contender for long.

Iain Valliere himself is becoming a real top flight contender. Coming in seventh place at the 2021 Olympia, Valliere is climbing up the rankings and could prove to be even more of force at time moves on.
Epic Leg Day

“What’s up guys, we’re here today training a little quads,” said Iain Valliere. “We got CBum here. It’s been a while since Chris has done a hard workout. Yeah like I said, we will do some quads today, start with some hacks, then going to move on to the leg press and all that kind of fun stuff. Yeah, so we’re going to get into it here, and start warming up and get into hacks.
“Okay, so we finished five sets there. Two sets, we worked up to a top set. We were aiming for 8-10 but I think we were all in the 10-12 range which is good. An average of 10. Now we’re moving on to the leg press. We only have one set here. Working up to a set of 15 with a very small pause, then pushing up five more, after failure. So re-rack, actually I think we can keep it unracked, keep the tension on, a couple seconds try to get another 5. Fifteen pushing 20, so we’re going to work up here and hammer out that one top set.”
It’s clear that Iain Valliere and Chris Bumstead are working hard to improve themselves. 2022 is looking to be a great year for the two brothers.
