Today, we tackle what many consider the most challenging day in any workout regime - leg day. But in our journey to superhuman strength, every challenge is a stepping stone to greatness. Inspired by the resilience of Loki, we take on exercises like the Barbell Back Squat and the Front Squat, aiming to build the kind of leg power that can withstand any test. The Single-Leg Press and our Calf Raise and Hanging Leg Raises superset offer a balance of strength and endurance. Remember, Loki was known for his agility and adaptability - let's cultivate these qualities in ourselves today.

Our path continues tomorrow as we stay on course to achieve that superhero physique. If you're joining us on this journey, let's connect! Reach out on social media to share your progress, ask questions, or just to say hello.
