I do cricket for fun, and my training is not designed to enhance my cricketing skills, it is so I can get bigger. Cricket does not need much size at all, but I am at a stage where I will not really go any higher in terms of the standard of thwe competition.

Right now, I want to add some size at the fastest possible rate, while still being able to play.

Thanks.

Best compromise, then, is probably to do legs on a cricket practice day. A little harder for legs overall but more total recovery.

What about the upper days, does it matter when I do them?

realizes taht I'm American, hence understanding of cricket is somewhere between not caring and really not caring.

how much of cricket (Throwing or batting or whatever you guys call it) is upper body?

if some, scheduling becomes an issue

if not much, it doesn't.

Can leg extensions be added in here?

Squat: 3-4X6-8/3' (3-4 sets of 6-8 with a 3' rest)
SLDL: 3-4X6-8/3'
Leg Extensions: 2-3X10-12/2' (seated)
Leg curl: 2-3X10-12/2' (Hammy's)
Calf raise: 3-4X6-8/3'
Seated calf: 2-3X10-12/2'

Does that work?

So I've basically been doing exactly what's in the OP

2 ham curls, 2 calve raises, feet low quad dominant leg presses invariably, and alternating high bar back squat and dead lift

now this leads to a slight 'imbalance' i suppose on dead lift days as there are 3 ham dominant exercises vs one quad dominant exercise

the OP in this thread would seem to imply that this is OK, whereas the most recent discussion seems to advocate dropping the 2nd leg leg curl on dead lift days in favor of another quad exercise


probably not a deal breaker?

There shouldn't be 2 leg curls AND a deadlift. The OP says RDL or leg curl, and then a second leg curl. So if you're doing RDLs, there should only be 1 other ham movement (1 leg curl).

squat
rdl
leg press
leg curl
calves

or

squat
leg curl
leg press
leg curl
calves

Either way, you end up with 2 ham dominant movements and 2 quad dominant movements each day, not 3 and 1.

For the Thu/Fri workouts either Repeat the first two or make some slight exercise substitutions. Can do deadlift/leg press combo on Thu
The dead lift that switches in here is CDL in place of squat. So no, you get 2 hams, 2 calves, 1 quad, and 1 kinda ham (the CDL)

In my post I wasn't calling the RDL a dead lift, but a ham exercise alla leg curls
