Balanced diet, maybe a bit more protein than normal...buy a weight belt, start with power cleans, squats, leg presses, calf raises, leg curls, leg extensions...don't neglect your upper body, though. Look up. Learn proper technique. Look Up, keep your back straight. 3 sets of 10
When I used to hit the weights, I like power straps instead of gloves.
Having said that...your body can produce the weight it needs...lunges, deep knee bends, calf raises, "squat thrust jump" - from standing, squat down, thrust your legs out in to a push up position, push up, pull your legs in, jump up to standing position, repeat. Again, don't neglect your upper body...push ups, dips, pull ups..
