The ever popular leg day. Everyone except me loves leg day. I have been a runner for so long, I have always used that as my lower body workout. This year I have mainly just been doing sprints on the treadmill, I have not gone out for runs. And when I have done leg day, I will admit I have not given it my all. I would either do bodyweight exercises, or light weights.
Today, I decided to use weights for all 5 moves. There was only 5 moves, so I thought I could do this 5 times. Ha! I don’t know what I was thinking this morning. I focused on getting low in my squats and at a slow and controlled pace. Needless to say I only made it through 3 rounds. My goal will be to keep doing this till I get through 5 rounds. Walking up the stairs when I was finished was interesting.
If you can, go heavy. But try and keep good form and get low in your squats. Do at least 3 rounds.
10 each leg curtsy lunge (do not alternate legs)
20 sumo squats
20 Russian deadlifts
20 calf raises
