Good Morning! I hope everyone’s beginning of the week has been great!
One of my blogging goals for 2016 is to post more often. In that same category, I also want to be posting more workouts and recipes. I thought I would start the goal of right with a workout for you all today. I did this workout yesterday and I suffered from jello legs by the end of the workout! Let me know if you give it a try!
Before starting the workout, I warmed up on the treadmill for about 10 minutes and did a couple sets of monster walks and x-band walks! I find these two exercises help with glute activation which I sometimes have a hard time doing otherwise.As you can see, it’s all supersets which is how I normally train. I was really trying to burnout my lower body with the last two supersets. The very last superset is only completed once, but you’re doing each exercise until you can’t do anymore.
I’ve included sourced videos, pictures, or explanations of the exercises I’ve done in case you are unsure of some of the exercises. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me, I’d love to help!
- Leg Press (feet high to target the hamstrings, the video I linked talks about multiple feet placements to work different parts of the lower body)
- 1-Leg Side Leg Press
- 1-Leg Split Squat (if you aren’t feeling this in your glutes, I find leaning forward slightly helpful)
- Sumo Squat
- Straight Leg Deadlift
- Curtsy Lunge
- Cable Kickback
- Cable Squat
- 1-Leg Glute Bridge
- Glute Bridge
