Sizzling Leg Workout

Leave a comment

Today was leg day. I look forward to my leg days (I work them twice a week). Lately, my leg workouts have become stale and I haven’t been feeling the burn after I was done. Time to change that!!

I was making my routine last night and discovered an awesome website. ExRx.net has an exercises directory broken down into muscle groups with videos on how to preform the moves. I made my entire routine from their website and focused on hamstrings, glutes, and quads.

Many exercises were new to me including:
Good Mornings

Front Squats

and an awesome little thing called drop sets. People swear it will build muscle size so I decided to give it a try. I shouldn’t say “little” because it caused a HUGE burn in my legs!! I never imagine I would lift so heavy and continue for so many reps, but I did and will keep adding drop sets into my routines.
