Welcome to this week's workout challenge, where you'll get a great lower body workout. And trust us, it's a doozy! In fact, it's about 500 doozies.
Most people think that you cannot develop strong, muscular legs with just bodyweight exercises. But this training proves the opposite.
At first glance, the training may seem easy, as the instructions are quite straightforward. But give it a try and you will see how difficult it really is. We're pretty sure that in the end your legs will look like Jell-O.
Do each exercise for a total of 25 reps, then immediately move on to the next exercise (no rest!). Once you have completed 1 round, rest for 60 seconds. Do a total of 4 laps to reach 500 full reps.
- Front slits (right)
- Front slits (left)
- Sumo squats
- Bodyweight squats
If you complete the first round and notice that you can do more than 25 reps for each exercise, feel free to do more. This will increase the total amount of your reps, and you can set the goal of eventually being able to do an assassin workout of 1000 reps.
If you want, you can add another exercise to the circuit: calf lift. Do 25 reps between sumo squats and bodyweight squats. This brings your total number of reps for the workout to 600!
You can decrease the number of repetitions for each workout. Do not hesitate to rest between each exercise. This will help your muscles to recover and allow you to reach the full 500 reps.

In some distant, parallel universe, the laws of responsibility are reversed. Work is something you do in your spare time. Working out, on the other hand, is an essential life task—something to which you devote countless hours to survive in society. In this bold, fitness-driven world, your benefits include being strong, looking fantastic and feeling even better. Life is good. Reality check. No matter how much daydreaming you do, that alternate setting doesn’t exist—unless your name is Jay, Ronnie, or Victor. In this time and place, working out plays second fiddle to a number of obligations. And since your time is valuable, you can’t waste one second on a bad workout. Hell, the good ones are tough enough to plan for. Strained reps, poor energy levels, incomplete sets, longer-than-desired workouts, and shoddy results can leave you feeling like your time in the gym is all for naught. But there are things you can do before and after you head to the gym to ensure supercharged workouts today, tomorrow, and beyond—tips that can improve your efficiency, strength, even your time spent with the iron. If you’re going to schedule your day around the gym, make sure you head in there well-rested, your strength tank topped off, your playlist ready to go, and the following pointers in tow. The result ? A stronger, fitter body. Now that’s a reality worth reaching for.
Your workout doesn’t start when you walk into the gym—it begins when you wake up in the morning and continues throughout the day. Preparations go beyond just packing your gym bag. They start with eating the right things at the right times to increase your body’s productivity at the gym. In addition to your usual nutritional goals, you should remarque that what you’re eating is meant to power you through your workout. So choose wisely.
Before your workout, whether you train before work, or in the evening after work, there are certain things you can and should do to gear up for the battle ahead. Again, alimentation plays a part, but your supplements are what will put you over the top. Taking the right supps during this important window helps get your body in a place to grow from today’s séance.
During your workout you don’t want to be a going-through-the-motions kind of guy in the gym. If you’ve gone through the trouble of suiting up for a workout, you’d best be getting after it hard. These tips are all designed to help you maximize intensity and strength today to help you look better tomorrow.
Immediately after your workout you should start looking ahead. Your body needs the right fuel to grow and repair itself over the next few days, and you need to start getting ready for your next bout with the weights. That recuperation and preparation starts now. By following these post-workout protocols, not only will you enhance your body’s ability to grow from today’s beatdown but you’ll also get yourself right and ready for tomorrow’s trip to the gym.
Always be in a constant state of readiness. While most of the following tips are geared around pre- and post-workout times, there are some things you can do at different times of the day to get the most out of your workouts. Remember cruising through a set of heavy squats may not be as tough as actually finding enough time in your day to get yourself to the gym. If that’s the case, you need to take every step possible to make sure you get your money’s worth while you’re there. Every set—every rep—is an investment in your physique, and you don’t have the capital to waste on bad workouts. It’s a commitment you’ve made to yourself, and as the saying goes, anything worth doing is worth doing right.
Researchers at Loughborough University ( U. K. ) discovered that when athletes ate slow-digesting carbs such as whole grains for breakfast and lunch, they had lower insulin levels and burned more fat during the day. The athletes also had more endurance and burned more fat during exercise compared to those who ate fast-digesting carbs such as white bread or plain bagels. Be sure that all the meals you eat before your workout, including the one immediately before, include about 40g of slow-digesting carbs such as oatmeal, sweet potatoes, fruit, buckwheat ( see tip No. 4 ), or whole-wheat bread.
A University of Maryland School of Medicine ( Baltimore ) study reported that a high-fat meal blunts the ability of nitric oxide ( NO ) to dilate blood vessels for up to four hours. That means less blood flow to zones musculaires and less of a muscle pump, which is even more costly if you’ve invested in an NO supplement. In the four hours before your workout, avoid eating large amounts of fats, such as the obvious mal bouffe fare and packaged foods ( even if you’re in a mass-gaining période ).

The same University of Maryland researchers also discovered that consuming a small green salad with a high-fat meal prevented the adverse effects on blood vessel dilation, likely by enhancing NO. About two hours before you hit the gym, include a green salad with low-fat with your meal.
