Workout of the Week.png

This week we are going to focus on LEGS. I tried this workout last week and my legs were happily sore for a few days (DOMS amirite?). If you do not have access to some of the equipment listed below, you can modify by using free weights or even large jugs of water. Get creative with what you use for weights, just don't let it affect your form, and if you absolutely cannot find anything to use as weights, just do the workout without them! If you choose to opt out of using weights, make sure to double the reps.

Time: 30-40 minutes
Equipment: Barbell (medium-heavy weight), Weight plate or dumbbell (medium weight), Leg press machine or heavy barbell

Set 1 (With medium-heavy barbell):
Deadlift x10
Front squat x8
Squat and Press x6
Repeat 3 more times (total 4 sets)

Set 2 (With medium-heavy barbell):
Plié Squat x10
Curtsy Lunge x10 Right Side
Curtsy Lunge x10 Left Side
Repeat 2 more times (total 3 sets)

Set 3 (With weight plate or dumbbell):
Single leg RDL/Deadlift x8 Right Side
Single leg RDL/Deadlift x8 Left Side
Front squat and press x10
Repeat 1 more time (total 2 sets)
*Note: Hold plate or dumbbell at your collarbone for proper placement

Set 4 (Leg Press Machine):
Leg Press mid stance x10
Leg Press wide stance x10
Repeat 2 more times (total 3 sets)
*Weight should be heavy enough to make 10 reps feel difficult
*If using a barbell, perform 10 front squats and 10 wide leg squats, same reps


That's it! Let me know how it goes! I hope you guys can set aside some time this week to try out this workout; Or if you don't want to commit to the full routine, try to complete at least one set. You can do it!!
