Leg workout

Tonight was a leg workout, and thank god it was lower body, I don’t think my arms could bare anything! thanks Kate for that punishment!

So , as Dad hurt his hamstrings on the weekend, which meant this leg workout, was quad focused! I tend to do one session a week quad focused and the other more hamstring focused. That way I make sure I work both and have the recovery time for working legs twice a week!

The Workout

Squats – 5 sets; 15, 12, 10, 8, 8 reps – pause at the bottom of each squat for 1-2 sec before standing.

Squats – 3 sets – 10 pulses, stand and squeeze, then 10 pulses; this is one

reverse lunges with weighted step ups – 4 sets – lunges; 20 reps (10 each leg) and step ups; 20 reps (10 each leg)

leg press – 4 sets of 10-12 reps (increase weight each time)

leg press – triple drop set

you should now crawl out of the gym!
