To build her impressive legs and glutes, Fiona had to go through some grueling workouts. Her lower body split consists of heavy squats, lunges, deadlifts, leg presses, and lying leg extensions.
She likes to go against the traditional approach of building size, at least when it comes to her quads, hamstrings, and glutes. This means she goes for the higher number of repetitions (12-20) to achieve that well-known burning sensation in the legs.
She believes that by going for the pump and burn, she gets her blood flowing. Ultimately, this causes nutrients become better absorbed by the muscle; causing muscle growth.
Below is Fiona’s mass building leg workout.
Leg Training Plan
- Squats, 5×12
- Leg press, 5×16
- Hack Squats, 4×16
- Lunges, 4×16
- Lying Leg Curls, 4×20
- Leg Extensions, 4×20
Fiona consumes 4-6 meals per day, depending on her body fat percentage. If she wants to lose weight, she’ll usually have more meals, but each of them will have fewer calories.
To keep her muscles strong and healthy, she eats a lot of quality protein – lean red meat, chicken breast, egg whites, and salmon. For carbohydrates, she usually consumes something like brown rice or whole-grain pasta. Lastly, her fat sources come from nuts, avocados, fatty fish, and olive oil.
As for supplementation, Fiona takes BCAAs, fish oil capsules, multivitamin, magnesium, and zinc. She may also add it a vitamin D3 supplement if she doesn’t get enough sunlight during the day.
