If you want to speed up body fat loss, train your legs three times a week

leg muscles metabolize the most calories far more than any other muscle group

and they are very adaptable to high-frequency training

As a short term strategy, this is very effective
The best strategy to follow is a “heavy/medium/light” workout schedule

You can’t make any day too intense, so you taper it and train with different rep ranges each day

Day 1

Squat or front squat 5x5

Split squats 3x6-8

Stiff leg deadlift 3x8-10

1 leg calf raise 4x6-12
Day 2

Glute hyperextensions 4x10-15

Hip thrust 4x10

Leg press 3x10

Leg extension 2x10-12

Seated calf raise 4x15-20
Day 3

Leg curl 2x20

Bodyweight Walking lunges, 50 reps each leg

Step ups 2x15

Hindu squat-50 reps total

Bodyweight calf raises 100 total reps

-Individually the workouts are not crazy,

But over the course of the week you’re doing around 30+ sets for your legs
