Your leg day workout should be heavy and hard. Even for a vegan. (Especially for a vegan, cause we is plant strrrrrrong!)
It should be eye wateringly-pants peeingly-vomit inducingly-hard.
It should leave you wanting to crawl out of the gym on your hands and knees, drowning in your vegan protein shake, knowing that sometime in the last sixty minutes or so, your soul probably left your body and remains motionless on the gym floor.
Why? Cause that’s how you get muscles to grow FAST.
That’s how you become… a SCULPTED VEGAN.
Sure, you can spend countless hours doing body-weight lunges or cable glute kickbacks. But you’re as good as wasting your time.
If you want thighs that could crush melons and a butt that can crack the shell off a walnut… then you need to push yourself to your max. Every. Single. Time.
In this week’s episode of Strong & Sculpted, I share with you the exact gym workout I have been doing for the last 10 months to build killer legs.
How many times a week do you train legs? Did you realise you had to train as hard as this to build good glutes? Leave a comment and let me know!

Strong and Sculpted – Episode 10 – d3
Kim: Hey guys, welcome to this week’s episode of Strong and Sculpted, I am here in Peter Bennett’s photographic studio, spraying myself with golden sunflower oil fry light because apparently this is what creates a really nice sheen whenever you are having a photo shoot. We’re actually creating a new programme for Instagram, well not for Instagram, just a new programme for sale which is called Posing for Instagram, so it kind of solves one of the biggest questions that I get asked, which is how do you make yourself look good in photos, you know, how do you show off your body, show off what you’ve worked for and because it’s one of the biggest questions we get asked and because we have so many women in our programmes who are creating amazing bodies, who are working really hard, we decided that there was a real gap in the market for this kind of information because women just don’t know how to show off what they’ve worked for. So today I am coming to Peter who does all of my photos and you’ll see just how incredible they are in a minute and he is going to photograph me in the different poses that we’re going to put in the PDF and after here, we’re going to head to the gym and train legs. So yeah, stay tuned you can see what happens.
You know Peter that is really good. Say hello to Peter, meet Peter.
Kim: This is the fabulous Peter Bennett, you’ve met him before actually in some of my videos but if you’re in Belfast or Ireland, indeed and you need photos done …
Peter: Or you need any fry light.
Kim: Or you need any fry light rubbed into you, Peter’s your man.
Well we’ve finished shooting and I’m dressed again because it’s really cold standing there in a bikini. I’ve brought lunch with me, I always, always, always carry my lunch everywhere because whenever you train like I do, you need to have your lunch and Peter and I are just going to choose all the photos now from the shoot so he can do the final edit on them.
So that’s us finished, just heading to the gym now to train some legs. Right Peter thanks so much.
Peter: Alright no worries.
Leg Extensions – 4 x 12 Reps.
Kim: It’s rocking in here tonight. We’ll get to 3, see how we go okay.
Mark: 5 or 6.
Kim: Get to 3.
Kim: I always count in 3’s, if I can do 3, I’ll do 3 more.
Mark: We’re not stopping at 3, we’ll stop at 6, come on.
Incline Squat – 6 x Reps – 190kg
Kim: Fucking hell Mark. I made the mistake of saying a few weeks ago, 200kg I’m coming for you, Mark was like, it might be a wee bit sooner than you think.
Pendulum Squat – 8 x Reps – 190kg
Kim: I nearly let it go on the bottom, last week he made me do 12.
Walking Lunges – 3 x 30 steps
Lying Leg Curls – 3 x 12/15
Kim: So that is me home from the gym now, I dropped Rory off home, the poor child actually vomited before we left the gym, sorry I’m lifting my plate here from my lunch. I had tried to warn him what leg day was like with Mark and he was like ah sure, it’s good fun, it’s the only way for muscles to grow and I was like ah hah, ah hah okay. So yeah, let’s just say Rory finally knows what leg day is really like, he had to come back in and vomit before we left and he literally didn’t move his legs the whole way home and then he stumbled getting out of the car and I fear for the poor child because I don’t think he’s going to be able to walk for the next flipping, I don’t know how long and look here are my kids, look, looking out of the window, they know I’m doing a video and they’re like hi. This is Jack and Mia and Buddy waiting patiently for mummy to come home, hi.
So I’m going to go in now and I’m going to prepare some dinner and then I have a coaching call this evening. I’ve two coaching calls actually, my sculpted vegan 12 month programme, people who pay in full get coaching calls with me as part of their package and people who are in the deluxe package get monthly coaching calls with me. So we do it on the first Wednesday of every month which is tonight so coaching calls tonight and so I’m going to go and spend a couple of hours with the babies, then the coaching calls tonight and then I have another 1 hour of cardio to do before I hit the sack tonight and I guarantee you, I will sleep well because my legs are already feeling it after those 190kg squats today. So thanks for watching, as usual if you have any comments or you have anything you want to ask me or any questions, definitely write them in the comments below, I try to get to every single comment and I love hearing from you guys so definitely any comments or questions in the comments below here, the video and I will see you all next week for Strong and Sculpted, take care, bye bye.
