Today I kicked off my new workout plan!
As Ryan and I drove to the gym, I brainstormed a bunch of different leg exercises so I had some kind of a plan of attack when I entered the weight room after we warmed up with 20 minutes of cardio on the elliptical.
I decided to kick off my leg workout with my least favorite exercise in the world: Squats. Bleh!
In the end my leg workout lasted around 35 minutes and included three sets of 15 repetitions of the following exercises:
- Superset One: Step ups, Deadlifts
- Superset Two: Lunges (15 each leg), 30 sec. wall sit
- Leg extensions
- Hamstring ball curls
(Note: If you’re confused by the names of some of these exercises, definitely look them up on YouTube. There are a lot of quality demo videos created by fitness professionals out there that serve as great tutorials.)
I kind of enjoyed focusing solely on my legs today rather than trying to cram in a total-body workout. My legs felt about 10 times more fatigued as we were leaving the gym than they have in weeks. Success!
Today’s breakfast tasted extra special thanks to the addition of turkey bacon.
Something about bacon of any kind (especially the smell!) reminds me of lazy weekend mornings. Sure it’s not the most motivational food to eat to begin the workweek, but it is delicious!
As is ooey, gooey muenster cheese!
