Hope you all had a fantastic July 4th!!!
Time to get back to the grind!
If you follow me on Instagram i post pics and get asked alllll the time about my leg routine
Well honestly I work my legs allllllll the time LOL as I teach many classes a week and pretty much all of them involve some kind of leg work out.
Les Mills Body Pump: Squat and Lunge tracks.
Interval Fitness Class: Weighted and body weight and plyometric moves.
Les Mills CXWorx: Resistance tubing exercises
Kettlebells: Weighted and body weight, along with some plyo and isometric moves.
OK that being said I DO LOVE LEG DAY!!!!!
I get in my FAVVVVV Dead lift day with my gym BESTIE and co-worker/partner in crime Lindsey. Having a lifting partner is key for me. I can of course get in and turn up the music and grind out some lifts. But nothing beats having a cheerleader telling you “COME ON LIFT IT!!!!!” on your last set and adding weight when you thought you were done. Oh and we always celebrate post lift with a well deserved visit to the TACO TRUCK!!!! You gotta feed the machine LOL
On my typical leg day this is what goes down:
Body weight warm up: 3X maxxxx effort jump squats.
Smith Machine: Warm up- 3X 95lbs 15 reps. 4X 135lbs 10 reps
Split Squat Smith Machine: 4 X 10 @ 95lbs ea. leg
Bench step ups with 25lb dumbbells in each hand 4 X 10 reps each leg
Sumo Goblet Squat 4 X 15 reps 50lb Dumbbell
Plyo Burn Out to finish: Jump lunges to failure 2-3 sets…..BURN THEM OUT!!!!!
So there you go! I hope you have a QUAD-TASTIC work out!!!!
