Friday! Randomness and Leg Workouts
I have to say, I’m really excited that I don’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn tomorrow 🙂 This week has FLOWN by and I know that the following weeks will continue to fly because of my schedule. Yesterday was filled with so much down time that couldn’t be used for anything but sitting.
I woke up yesterday at about 6AM….got ready for the gym and headed out. Did a leg workout, followed by 20 minutes of intervals on teh treadmill, with 10 minutes of steady jogging at the end. I then moved onto the stair stepper for 20 minutes. Just as I was getting off, the head trainer at my gym (who will be training me next week! Can’t wait as he was in the olympics and needless to say..he knows his shit.) came up to me and said “I had a massage scheduled for right now, but I can’t make it…do you want it?” UMM YEAH! Even though I didn’t really have time for it, I went anyways and decided I would just do a rush act to go to class after the massage. The massage was amazing!! I then headed to my first class of the day which I thought was about 30 minutes away(its at a different campus then ASU). WRONG it was more like an hour away…I was so late and then I couldn’t find parking and by the time I did, I decided SCREW IT..im not making this drive every day! So i left haha. Since I was so far away from home and had to go to class at 1:30 (which is half way between where I was and my house) I decided to waste time at walmart. I go to my 1:30 class and our teacher is sick so he keeps us for 10 minutes….okay well now I don’t have class until 3pm….waste more time reading magazines….I get to my 3pm class and we were there for 10 minutes and he decided to let us go! WTF! SOOO I had a 2 hour break before my next class and decided OKAY im going home for some real food. (Ate apples, a clif bar, a protein shake, and an odwalla bar throughout the day…must plan better next thursday)
Anyways….Fitting Back In requested that I post my leg workouts so here goes:
I usually do about 4 sets of each exercise…sometimes only 3 sets….and I usually do about 4 or 5 different exercises. I decide before hand if I want to focus more on glutes and hams or if I want to focus more on quads.
A typical “quad” day may consist of squats(barbell, DB, hack or sumo), leg press, lunges, leg extensions
A typical “ham/glute” day may consist of deadlifts, 45*(degree sign lol) hypers with weight, reverse lunges, bulgarian squats(split squats) with weight, step-ups, hamstring curls, ham curls on the swiss ball, hip thrusts(video link of me below from my old gym..my favorite exercise!), cable donkey kicks, DB squats and sumo squats work the glutes pretty well and much differently than normal medium stance squats
Anyways, there you have it. Off to the gym now!
