              How Frequently Should You Workout Your Legs?

              According to studies, there isn't much difference between training leg muscles once a week and three times a week when it comes to maximizing muscular growth. Resistance training volume, or how many sets and repetitions you do, makes the largest effect. Higher volume sessions are more effective than training the same muscle group numerous times each week.

              Conclusion

              According to a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning, mixing up your workout routines regularly is just as helpful as increasing the intensity. And sure, the best leg routines will activate a good range of both your front and back muscles.
