Leg Routine

Yesterday I had a great leg work out – where at the end I almost felt like puking –  I have to say it has been a long time ago since I felt that! I normally don’t train quads and hamstrings the same day, but time restraints this week led me to combine a few exercises of both into one session – better than sitting on your bum getting nothing accomplished, right? So this is what my session looked like (I’m not putting down how much weight I used on all the exercises because this is irrelevant – everyone is different and as long as it is CHALLENGING, you are on to something!)

Straight legged deadlifts – 8-10 reps x 5 sets

Lying leg curls – 3 sets

Standing leg curls – 3 sets

Walking lunges with 25 lb dumbbells – 3 sets of 30 “lunges”

Leg extensions – pyramid sets (5)

Step ups on bench with barbell – 3 sets

Split squats on bench – 10 reps on each leg x 3 sets

I like to incorporate some sumo squats with a barbell as well as more glute work, but I tell ya – with the weight I was working with yesterday my legs were shaking and told me to call it a day. Definitely feeling it today! My butt is going to look GREAT for summer!! 🙂
