Today’s my only day off for the week so it’s been a lot of errands and cleaning, I still need to start packing so I can clear out what I don’t need to keep. But while waiting for a consignment store to go through my clothes (they didn’t take much but some cash is better than none…) I ran over to the gym.
I needed to do legs again, I’ve noticed while I’m getting better about arms and cardio I’ve been slacking on full leg workouts. So, here it is:
12 lunges with weight
15 sumo squats with weight
Then I did machines, which I can’t remember the last time I’ve used! It definitely challenged me because it does focus in on the muscle group being worked (instead of working multiple muscles at once) and when you haven’t done that in awhile, you feel it. Looked like this
12 leg press
12 leg extensions
12 one leg kick-back (per leg)
20 squats with body weight
12 back lunges (step back into the lunge instead of forward) with bar
15 step ups with side kick onto a bench per leg (stand next to the bench so you’re facing sideways from it and place one foot on it, step onto the foot kicking your other leg out to the side as you do)
15 hip raises with medicine ball between knees
15 glute kick backs/leg (aka hip extensions)
15 round house kicks on heavy bag/leg
I liked using the machines, to focus in on muscle groups. It’s also always important to mix up your workouts so your body doesn’t adapt to what you’re doing!
