If you are not sure how to perform an exercise then this is the place to look.
The Legs A lot of hardgainers do not train the legs as much as they should, they tend to train the upper body more. You should put just as much emphasis on your legs as you do on your chest or arms.
The quadricep is made up of four seperate muscles they are called the rectus femoris, the vastus intermedius, the vatus medials and the vastus lateralis the function of the quadricep is too push.
The hamstrings are made up of three seperate muscles they are called the bicep femoris, semitendinosus and semimembranosus the function of the hamstring is too bend the knee and extend the hip.
The calves are made up of two muscles the gastrocnemius and the soleus the function of the calves is too flex the knee and the ankle.
Before any exercise or workout dont forgot to warm up so you can prevent injury, as it is better to warm up for 5 minutes before the workout as it is to have 5 weeks or so off the gym due to inury.
