No-Pain Six-Pack: Leg Workout

Train around injuries and get lean.

If you've been training for a few years, chances are you're no longer able to do all your favorite lifts, due to injury or age. But there's no excuse to bail on hard training entirely. Instead, with a few exercise substitutions,  you can continue to challenge yourself, build muscle, and burn off the fat to see your abs inside of a month. In this video: The leg workout.

Perform the following workout once per week in the order shown. Exercises are performed as straight sets, so you'll complete all prescribed sets for one move before going to the next.

1. High-box squat
Sets: 3   Reps: 8

2. Terminal knee extension
Sets: 3   Reps: 20

3. Cable pull-through
Sets: 4   Reps: 15
