Leg Day

        Leg day is a dreaded day for many of those seeking their full fitness potential, BUT... There are so many reasons why we should all look forward to leg days! The body is the most amazing machine ever created! The body has survived through the worst of times and has done so at the top of the food chain in every way. The natural way our body works uses leg muscles in activity. So to spend all that time in the gym without ever working legs, not only makes you look like a pansy, but it throws your body off big time!  When you lift your legs your body naturally releases testosterone throughout your body. This happens when any large muscle group is strained, none of which is bigger or better than on leg day! You will notice gains and improvements through out your entire body if you make sure to workout your legs every week! (Not just running or walking, I mean WORK your legs) Your gains will shoot through the roof. I guarantee it! So our Friday leg day consists of the following:

  • Squats: 1 warm up set of 15 or so then,  3 sets of 5 (heavy), and then 2 sets of 15-20 (light)
  • Hack Squats: Lighter 3 sets of 10-15
  • Lunges: 4 sets of 12
  • Leg Curls: 3 sets of 10-12
  • Leg extension: 3 sets of 10 (heavy)
*If you would like to wrap it all up with jump ropes and calves it makes for the perfect icing on the cake! 
Go get em, yeah buddy! 
**Girls, legs are the sexiest thing you could ever work. Do squats, lots of squats! My wifey kills it on leg days and does this same workout.. She looks amazing!
