Quickest way to build leg muscles?
I want to build my leg muscles as i feel they are not strong enough to support all the running i do. What is the quickest and most effective way to build them?
I will only be doing leg excercises so no need for any upper body excercises. Do i still only do one session per week given i won't be doing any other weight lifting based activities apart from on my legs? Or should i do one day in the gym and one day off?
I've had shin splints for over a year and tried most things like physiotherapy, stretches etc and nothing has worked. My physio told me that he thought my leg muscles were strong enough and they weren't the cause of my shin splints but it's just a hunch i've had for a while and i thought i may aswell try building my leg muscles and see if that works given i've tried nearly every thing else.
So basically, quickest way to build my legs muscles and how many times i should train them per week?
