Get Those Legs Moving

Not everyone is a morning person…  I’m not but I’ve trained myself into a ‘fake’ morning person.  I’ve noticed that when I workout early, my energy level is much higher, and my coffee intake is lower.  Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet or in my case not snooze a thousand times – just get up and get moving! 

Nothing screams Monday better than working your legs. Try the workout below for an extra oomph and challenge yourself.  I promise you’ll feel the burn tomorrow.

Warm-up: Air Squats; 25 reps, 3 sets

Exercise #1: Shoulder Width Smith Squats; 10 reps, 3 sets (add weight each time)

Exercise #2: Barbell Good Mornings; 15 reps, 4 sets (increase weight each time)

Exercise #3: Seated Leg Extension; 15/12/10/8 reps, 4 sets (increase the weight each time)

Exercise #4: Medicine Ball Abdominal Twists; 30 reps, 3 sets

Exercise #5: Lying Leg Curl; 15 reps, 4 sets

Exercise #7: Decline abdominal sit-up; 15 reps, 3 sets

 

Walk it off, shake it off, and strut it off…
