Make the most of your workout!
Ah leg day. For some, an evil part of the journey toward a fit physique. But for me? I LOVE LEG DAY! I tend to carry weight in my lower body, so for me leg day is a chance to tone up, and most importantly build fat burning muscle. During this particular workout phase (see original post here), I’m doing 2 leg days per week to really kick it up a notch. Day 3 concentrates on the back of leg muscles: Hamstrings, Glutes, Calves.
My leg days often combine heavy weight training with plyometrics. For me, combining a “slow burn” technique leg weight training with fast, explosive movements of plyometrics is a sure fire way to keep my body guessing and burn mad calories during the workout, and after. So here you go, a 1 hour leg day you’ll be feeling great about – inside and out!!
WARM UP — 5 minutes treadmill brisk walk (on last 3 minutes, increase incline to at least 3.0)
LEG EXERCISES for the BACK of legs:
COOL DOWN and STRETCH (5 min)
Go to it!
