Lee Priest Workout 19
Lee, Rusty Jeffers and Russ meet at “Maximum Fitness” in Arizona for a killer leg workout.
I’ve seen Lee do some pretty intense leg workouts particularly one with Richard Stone in Austin, Texas where they did walking lunges with 135lbs across the gym floor and finished the lunges with Barbell Squats. Lunge down 20 yards, do 50 reps of Barbell Squats. For multiple sets. And that was just one exercise of the leg workout.
However, on this day at Maximum Fitness, I almost witness Lee throw up as I’m editing the footage. I’ve never seen Lee throw up or come this close to throwing up.
From what I can tell, the workout is:
- Hatfield Bar Squats x 20 reps (work up to 315 lbs)
- Barbell Bench Press x 10 reps (work up to 315 lbs)
- Rack Deadlifts x 12 reps (work up to 495 lbs)
Repeat 5 times increasing the weight each set.
YOU MEAN THERE’S MORE?
The next Tri-Set consists of:
- Leg Press x 50 reps (work up to 6 plates on each side)
- Dumbbell Flyes x 50 reps
- Barbell Rows x 50 reps (use 135 lbs)
IT’S NOT REVENGE, IT’S F*CKING STUPID!
As I watch the footage, I get a kick out of Mike who’s NOT doing this workout but is cracking jokes the whole time talking about Dunkin Doughnuts, McDonalds, Lemon Cake from Starbucks, etc. I’m impressed that Lee has the patience for this and takes it all in in stride as he looks like he’s ready to die. Rusty is all business, cranking out the reps like a machine, encouraging the others and looking at his wife, who’s working the camera.
Russ ends up throwing up at least 4 times. What a trooper. He just keeps going and finishes the workout. Lesser men would have thrown in the towel and called it a day. When you’re training with two pro bodybuilders, you tend to work harder and push yourself to the end. I found myself wanting to know more about Russ and what his story is.
This footage, some of which has never been seen, was taken from DVD 23 of BodyBuildersReality which ran from 2006-2007.
Ed Brown, Jr continues his winning ways! Ed won both the Open and Masters divisions of the 2015 Ronnie Coleman Classic! Yeah, buddy!
Ed was Lee Priest’s training partner in 2007 while Lee was still in the United States and competing in the PDI. One of the things that Ed remembers Lee telling him as he dialed into contest condition was “You gotta get harder, douchebag.” and “Stop saucing your foods”. Of course it helps to have one of the best bodybuilders in the world as your training partner.
There is already a ton of videos and articles on Ed’s training on this site and we’ll have more in the near future. In the meantime, here’s the latest video with Ed! Congrats to Ed Brown, Jr and his lovely wife!
P.S. This is another reminder that if you want to be YOUR best, surround yourself with THE BEST. Don’t settle for less! I wrote an article about this on my Scott York Fitness site here.
