Every bodybuilder and weightlifter has their favorite exercises for each body part. This is how it should be: as you progress through the different stages of your learning, you will understand what works best for you. However, it is helpful to take stock of your progress from time to time and analyze where you are and what changes, if any, are needed moving forward.

Part of this analysis should include an evaluation of the basic exercises that make up your strength training program. In this article, we'll look at leg exercises that have proven themselves among serious exercisers for many years. Where appropriate, a series of exercises to reach the pre-exhaustion stage will be presented. All exercises should be performed to exhaustion with a set of six to eight repetitions.

1. Leg Extension – this exercise will allow you to isolate the thigh muscles preserving the strength of the other leg muscles for the compound exercise that follows.

- Push the cushions until the knees are almost locked.

- Take a break.

- Descend with control to the starting position.

2. Leg Press – you can skip straight to this exercise if you are experienced enough.

- Place your feet shoulder-width apart on the step.

- Bend your legs until they almost touch your chest.

- Take a break.

- Return with control to the starting position.

3. Calves – the best way to work the calves is to perform raises on special gym equipment that allows standing raises and seated raises to work both calf muscles.
