Beachbody's Body Beast Bulk Legs Modifications

Body Beast's "Build Phase" routines are quite well-rounded routines in my opinion, that is why I did not make too many changes to them. The "Bulk Phase" routines, on the other hand need a few more modifications to them. After each blog, I will explain why I made the changes that I did.

Bulk: Legs

Single Set
Front to Back Lunges (Bar)

Progressive Set
Back Squat (Bar)

Force Set
Back Squat (Bar)

Progressive Set
Split Squat (Bar)

Super Set
Stiff Leg Deadlift (Bar)
Alt. Side Squat

Super Set
Single-Leg Calf Raise
Hanging Open/Close

Single Set
Calf Raises (Bar)

The alternating front to back lunges are a great way to start this routine. This exercise is actually a bit of an extension from the warm-up, allowing the legs, knees, and hips to track through their range of motion and prepare for the workout.

The progressive set of squats will obviously be done with the barbell.

The following force set, I will be swapping out the Sumo Squat for a traditional back squat because I personally find it is a better exercise. I will no doubt have to lower my weight a bit after the previous progressive set.

I have swapped out the core move at the end for "Hanging Open/Close". This is done by hanging from a pull-up bar, engaging the core, bringing your knees up towards your chest (knees kept at 90 degree bend) and you slowly open and close your knees for a desired rep range.

I have also added a bonus round at the end of the workout, with some calf raises (barbell perched on shoulders). All calf raises will be done with balls of feet and toes on a weight plate, to allow a great range of motion in the calves.

Any questions? Let me know!
