Cut Like Cutler Exercise Videos – Legs & Calves

Cut Like Cutler Navigation

On Day 1 of each week, you’ll train Legs & Calves. Before you begin your workout, check out the Cut Like Cutler exercise videos to learn the proper technique for each lift.

Leg Extension

Leg extensions are great for developing your quads and warming them up before the rest of your lifts. They help your tear drop, outer sweep, and inner sweep. Toe position can affect which part of the quad is being targeted.

Leg Curls

Get ready for great detail in your hamstrings. Rest your feet gently on the pad without angling them back to you, this will keep your entire harmstring engaged.


Squats are a total leg lift. Take a shoulder width grip and a shoulder width stance. Initiate the squat from your hips and go until at least parallel.

Leg Press

These work both the quads and hamstrings. Remember to come all the way down and focus on squeezing – no partial reps allowed!

Seated Calf Raises

Seated calf raises are best for bringing out the detail in your calves. Don’t rush through them. A controlled raise with a squeeze works best.

Lying Leg Curls

These are great at the start of your workout to warm up the hamstring. To target the full hamstring, keep your toes pointed. You might not be able to use as much weight as you could with a flexed heel, but it’s better for overall development.

Walking Lunges

Walking lunges blast your whole lower body. To target quads, take a shorter stride. If you want to focus on glutes and hamstrings, take a longer stride with each lunge.

Single Leg Extension

These isolate and define the detail in your quads. Single leg extensions can target your tear drop, outer sweep, or overall quad depending on your foot placement.

Stiff Leg Deadlifts

Stiff leg deadlifts develop your legs, glutes, and lower back. Initiate the lift with your hamstrings and pause and squeeze at the top.

Standing Calf Raises

If you don’t have a standing calf machine, you can perform these in a smith machine with a box or step. Keep your toes on the box and slide your heels off. Rock your heels down towards the floor and feel a big stretch in your calves. You’ll see great separation in your calf muscles after adding these to your training.
