Leg day is a love and hate type of thing. I love the strength I gain, but I hate the penguin walk that follows 2 to 3 days post workout. It’s just one of those things you gotta do! The great news is that there are so many options for leg exercises that you will never get bored. If you can’t make it to the gym, home workouts or a bike ride are always available.
Below is an overview of the leg and glute workout I will be performing at the gym today. Stay tuned for at home-workouts and more in the future.
Gym LEGS and GLUTES
Warm up – treadmill & stretch – 10 minutes
Standing Calf Raises 3 sets 15 reps
Deadlifts 3 sets 6 reps
Squat (not weighted) 2 sets 20 reps
leg press 3 sets 6 reps
Bulgarian Split Squat (each leg) 2 sets 8 reps
Leg curl 3 sets 8 reps
Good Mornings 3 sets 10 reps
Leg extension 3 sets 8 reps
The lower reps should be with a heavy weight. Reps higher than 10 should be a medium to heavy weight. You can decide for yourself what heavy is.
Remember to focus on form. I don’t think there is anything worse than sloppy form. Take is slow and make sure you are doing it RIGHT! If you aren’t sure… ask a trainer. Also, at the end of your workouts…STRETCH. It might hurt, but will feel so good afterwards.
Have a good workout!
