Leg and Shoulder workout is possible normally because they are two different muscle groups and do not affect the recovery or rest time between the other muscle-in short -Legs and Shoulders workout is a perfect Super-Set combination if you are in a hurry or want to reduce recovery time of specific muscle while keeping your Heart Rate higher for that extra fat burn!

You can train legs and shoulders together, especially if you’re following a full-body training split or you have a limited number of days to train throughout the week. You will still be able to see improvements in both size and strength by training legs and shoulders on the same day vs separate workouts.

A true leg day always involves squats. And in this case, two different types of squats. Back squats for the traditional heavy lifting, and front squats for more core activation and indirect mobility work.

We’re not going to sugar-coat this one, this leg and shoulder workout is long, and it’s tough. But, if you’re already following something like our total-body redemption plan (which this is a part of) you’re already used to putting in the work.
