Dorian Yates Leg Workout Routine
Dorian explains that since his knee injury barbell squats are simply too painful to get a full workout on his legs, which is why he was forced to come up with a squat equivalent in his workout routine. His famous blood and guts workout for legs listed below shows how he adapted to his injury.
However if you have a knee injury then squats are recommended to be replaced with leg press or Smith machine hack squats as in the routine below. Dorian always stresses the importance of avoiding momentum at all times and to take extra time on any and all eccentric movements.
As you can see in the routine below Dorian always takes extra care to warm up and stretch correctly before going full force striving to reach failure. His own injuries forced him into warming up correctly to avoid any farther damage to the knee ligaments.
The blood and guts legs routine listed below is a workout done with high intensity where no more than 60 seconds rest between sets. After hack squats full recuperation should be achieved by resting a full 5 minutes before starting on hamstring and calf training.
