Check out this knee-friendly, over 40 leg training routine I did the other day. I will warn you, it’s tough and you will be sore, but your knees and back will thank you.
This is solely for building muscle. You will get stronger, but it’s not the main goal. For rest periods go with 30 seconds for everything except for leg press which will require around one minute. Wear a watch to track rest, don’t bring your phone, it’ll only distract you, and stay focused the entire time.
Good luck, Here we go!
Seated calf raise 4 x 10-20
Standing calf raise 4 x 10-20
Seated leg curl 3 x 10-16
Dumbbell Romanian deadlift 3 x 12
Leg extension 3 x 20
Bulgarian split squat (no weight) 3 x 20 each leg
Leg press 3 x 20
This should only take you about 45 minutes, max. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Love this! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Michael! I think I’ll start posting more training and program stuff here. Just some short and to-the-point useful things.
I’ve also started writing other subject matter over at bradjournals.com. Let me know what you think.
