In need of a new leg workout? Here ya go!
I started out by squatting HEAVY on the smith machine. I did a warm up with no weight to get my blood flowing, and then did 3 sets of 12, increasing my weight each time. PUSH YOURSELF ON THIS ONE, then start the circuits:
1. Bulgarian goblet squats: (do the traditional bulgarian split squat, but hold a plate directly out in front of you, as though it is the steering wheel of a car. I used a 10, but start with a 5 and see how you feel.) 12 on each side
2. Bosu ball squats: 20 total (go low and slow!)
3. Curtsey lunges with 30 lb bar, 10 on each side
(I rotated through lifts 1-3 as a circuit and went through it 3 times)
I finished with 10 minutes on the treadmill, walking at an incline to allow my legs to cool down and break up the lactic acid buildup in hopes that I can actually walk tomorrow. WE SHALL SEE! 🙂
