Slowly drifting. Drifting away. Wave after wave. Wave after wave. Another morning work out in an almost empty gym. Best way to start my day every single day. Just me and the weights. Leg day fun ??? #workout #workouts #fit #fitness #fitforlife #lifting #liftlife #legday #gym #gymrat #squat #squats #trainingday #fitspo #sweatsession #onedayatatime #oneworkoutatatime
This post is to highlight some of my favorite lower body, leg day exercises. I posted this also on my Instagram and got a lot of feedback and comments and questions – which I am always happy to answer. I do all of these exercises for 3-4 sets of 10 reps max. In the summer I keep my reps between 10-12 and then in the winter and fall months when I try to put on more weight and size I do 6-8 max. It all depends on your goals but right now this is more of a HIIT sculpting and toning (hate that word though) routine, to help keep the muscle nice and defined, cut and lower body fat.
One thing to keep in mind when training glutes and legs is to really focus on squeezing those muscles. I know it will look ugly and weird to be squeezing so hard but you need to make sure you are getting the most out of your exercises. On the way up push through your heels and feel the glutes contract – that is what helps to shape that rear!
