IFBB Pro Branch Warren’s Leg Routine

Branch Warren is known for his extremely conditioned, grainy, and dense physique. One of, if not his best bodypart, are his legs. His trademark feathered and striated quads and hamstrings set him apart from all the other bodybuilders that he shares the stage with. Here is his leg routine, straight from his own words, as sourced from an issue of Muscular Development.

It is common to change up your routine to encourage growth. New stimulation will force the muscle to adapt, so here are two routines that Branch utilized – one being his common training routine in the past, and the second being his current routine.

Previous Leg Training Routine

Squats: 6-7 sets of 6-8 reps
Leg Press: 3 sets to failure*
