So, I do "leg day" on Monday's. One reason is because, after taking two days off (Saturday & Sunday), I feel pumped and ready to get back at it come Monday. I need all the energy and motivation I can get when it comes to lifting my lower body. It's the hardest workout for me to get through; but one of the most effective and worthwhile. My "favorite" lift day is actually when I get to do shoulders and triceps... I love pretty shoulders, and muscle-defined arms!
But, back to leg talk..... this morning I did the lower body section of this 30-day program by Jamie Eason. That was a mouthful. I actually came across this awesome program on fitness coach, Erin's, blog. Her blog is by far one of my favorite places to go to look for a new workout. She also has a million different clean-eating tips, tricks, and meal plans. I highly recommend checking it out!
My legs were shaking by the time I finished this workout! That means it was a good one, right? :) Of course, I like to add a little bit of core at the end of all my workouts, so I did the following before calling it quits:
3 sets of 15 reps each
Russian twists w/ weighted ball (30 altogether)
And there you have it! If you try it out, let me know how it went for you!
