FEATURE: Training legs with IFBB Pro Nicolas Vullioud.
IFBB Pro Nicolas Vullioud is preparing for his show in Portugal 14-15 July, 2018.
Not too many athletes talk about their training routines, but we are lucky to have Nicolas sharing his knowledge with the bodybuilding world.
Nicolas is not a tall athlete but one thing is for sure, he made up for this by packing on a lot of muscle on such a small frame.
One of Vullioud’s best body parts is his legs. He has long sweeping hamstrings and massive quads.
Today we bring you one of Nicolas’ leg training routines. One must remember that Nicolas is less than a month away from competing.
