If you train your shoulder and legs together on the same day, this article can be helpful for you. Here, I’ve shared different types of leg and shoulder workout routines, such as body weight, dumbbell, resistance band, and gym.
Depending on the type of exercise you do, you can save one of the workouts. For example, I train in the gym, so I follow one of the gym workout routines, where I do chest and triceps on day 1, back and biceps on day 2, and Legs and shoulder on day 3.
Legs and shoulders are lower and upper body muscles, so you can train them on the same day as long as it doesn’t make you feel out of breath or sore your muscles.
It may be challenging, especially if you’re a beginner, because it requires significant strength and endurance but you can also give it a try.
The lower body has four primary muscles to train, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, and glutes, while the shoulder has three specific muscles to focus on, anterior delt, side delt, and posterior delt. So based on this, you’ll need to incorporate five to seven different exercises so you can hit every major muscle efficiently without putting much stress on a specific one.
It is also important to include the right set of exercises when it comes to creating the best leg and shoulder workout. For example, the combination of compound and isolation exercises.
Compound exercises engage many muscles simultaneously, but they are also challenging. Squats, dumbbell I-Y-T raises, and Romanian deadlifts are examples of compound movements. While Isolation exercises focus on a specific muscle. Examples of isolation exercises are leg extension, calf raise, lateral raise, and reverse fly.
If you only include compound movements, you’ll feel breathed out in a short time and won’t be able to work out efficiently.
Well, I’ve created some samples of shoulder and leg workout plans that you can follow or use to design your own routine.
