Let’s be honest, most of us don’t really like training legs. It’s draining, requires a long warm up, is most affected by bad posture and movement throughout the day, and seems much harder to motivate ourselves for than training upper body, playing sports or cardio. So, we do sometimes opt for faster, more compact sessions, but this 6-12-25 Leg Workout is anything but easy!
You can read more about the benefits of 6-12-25 here, but the mainstay of this training routine is massively increased time under tension for the muscle, and calorie burn overall. It also utilises the three most commonly considered training rep ranges within one triple-set, which are namely; strength, hypertrophy and volume work.

For this 6-12-25 Leg Workout we will be completing the below;
- Back Squats x 6 reps
- Front or Goblet Squats x 12 reps
- Hip Thrusts x 25 reps
The rules for the most effective 6-12-25 Leg Workout can be found below;
- Complete 5 rounds of the 6-12-25 sets
- Minimal rest between exercises
- 2-3 minutes rest between each 6-12-25 set
- 4 seconds lowering phase, and an explosive drive to standing, with the back squats
- 3 seconds lowering phase, with a powerful drive back to standing, with exercise 2
- Consistent speed throughout the reps with the hip thrusts (adding weight or resistance is optional).
As it is hard to gauge the appropriate weights to use in order to push you to near your maximum on each exercise, we recommend using 1-2 warm up sets to help find suitable weights to use for each exercise. You can adjust these between sets as required too.
This 6-12-25 Leg Workout is great as a standalone when you are short of time, and also as a finisher after a particularly horrid push workout or lower body session!
