dont know

but i find this for legs when i googled it

you can always get his video m3 if youre really interested, its one of the better videos out there imo

 KEVIN LEVRONE

As the winner of 20 IFBB pro shows between 1992 and 2001, Kevin Levrone owned two of the sport's best wheels. With dramatic outer sweeps, his thighs displayed the same round fullness as his delts and arms. He built most of his size by going heavy for basic lifts, including squats and leg presses.

HEAVY WEIGHT

"I've always trained legs heavy. It's the fastest way to gain size.
There is no substitute for continuously using heavier weights. Not only
does it build size, but it gives me a hardcore mindset. When I train
heavy, I know that I can achieve anything."
--Kevin Levrone

KEVIN LEVRONE'S THIGH ROUTINE

EXERCISE             SETS   REPS

Squats               5       5-20
Leg presses          5      10-12
Hack squats          4      12-15
Leg extensions       4      10-20
Standing leg curls   6      12-20
Lying leg curls      6*     12-15
Stiff-leg deadlifts  6       8-10

* The final set is a drop set.


been a long time since i saw that video but i cant recall seeing kevin ever do squats so not sure how accurate that is
article is from flex july 2005

levrone on triceps

Take his advice with a grain of salt; Kev had a genetic predisposition towards development in which case most exercises would've worked IMO, but he doesn't know it. He tends to think in very standard terms, which is fine for someone with his genetics.

It looks like he did 36 sets for legs.  If you're not Kevin Levrone and you don't have access to multiple grams of testosterone and hundreds of IU's of HGH, then DO NOT follow his workout routine.

Also, he says "go heavy" then you notice his rep range is anywhere from 8-20  ::)

His routing was fairly simple,
six months on, six months off.

Day 1 Chest, shoulders, triceps

Day 2 Quads

Day 3 Back, biceps, hamstrings

Day 4 Rest



only 4 days rest for each muscle. Thats abit low for most people.

A very good tip here.

Quote
Many bodybuilders perform lying triceps extensions (often called skull crushers) as presses, letting their elbows drop and their triceps relax, so they can leverage the weight upward using their forearms and lats, with minimum triceps effort. I avoid that at all costs. For lying extensions, my elbows point straight at the ceiling.

This is very true. Most people i see in the gym perform them wrong like Kevin explains here.

4 days is plenty; some believe anything after 2-3 days allows the muscle to start sliding backwards. Coleman, Schwarzenegger, Oliva, Haney all believed in twice weekly training per muscle.

yea most muscle recovery in 72 hours. Arnold  always overtrained, doing six days a week but with a double split. no one trains like that anymore after Dorain Yates. showed that rest and recovery was more important then training. if some posted a 6 day workout on here. you guys would laugh him of the board

Wrong. Push-pull legs each muscle done twice a week has been  shown to be superior especially for natties. Forget Yate's mythical bs. Levrone actually has the right approach.

Nope. Kevin didn't train like this. This flex article is made up, probably ghost written by that idiot Ron Harris.

Levrone trained like this most pf the time

Chest 3 to 4 exercises
Shoulders 3 to 4 exercises
Triceps 1 to 3 exercises (he would usually just do Cable pushdowns for 4 sets of 20 reps for his triceps as they were fatigue from doing chest and shoulders)

Back 4 to 6 exercises
Biceps 3 exercises

Quads 3 to 4 exercises
Hamstrings 1 to 2 exercises
Calves 1 to 3 exercises

He did low reps on the compounds around 6 to 8
Machines and some isolations he did higher reps around 10 to 15
Sets were 4 for the most part per exercise

He would pyramid up on each set to a top set at times
Other times he would keep the weight the same on each set
He never did negatives
He rarely went to failure

He only had to train a few years to get his pro card. Elite genetics.

Just imagine if he also used MuscleTech for supplements.
