Legs And Other Things

Hi Gang!

An update on this weekend since I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to do a thing. I love my blog and I love my readers, so better late than never right?

On Wednesday, I was the ultimate cliche doing glutes/legs in the gym. Enter fit girl “hump day” here.

I love doing legs in our new gym because you can super set things and never have your equipment taken. I never thought I’d see the day!

Here’s what I did for legs. Now keep in  mind this was a pretty light day for me… 😉 Good for when you’re short on time!

  • Leg presses, 1 warmup set light for 20 presses, then 3 sets, 20 presses moderately heavy
  • Barbell squats moderately heavy for 10, followed by 10 unweighted lunges each leg. Repeat 3 times
  • Hip Abductors leaning forward. 20 reps x 4 sets

As you can see here I grab the back of the seat and lean forward. It really kills that trouble spot under the booty!

Here is where I started with the resistance bands. I used them first to loop around my feet and travel with them squatting. Unfortunately my camera man wasn’t there at the time, but here is what I mean.

Next up. I looped that band around a machine and go to squatting. You don’t have to be at a gym. You can loop this around anything at home that is steady to get the same workout.

I did different variations on squatting here.

SUPER SLOW.

I basically went until I felt I couldn’t do another set. I think I did 6 or 7 sets of 20 maybe? The idea here is to burn out the legs without a lot of weight.

I try to incorporate different exercises, or give you ideas for things you can try at home if you don’t have access to a gym. Unfortunately my blog is pretty “gym heavy”, but I like to mix up equipment and full body things for a complete lower body workout!

I think Tony was a little surprised I was working out in shorts, but our new gym is SO HOT I felt I had to for leg day.

I’m off to enjoy the weekend! I hope you have a nice, safe holiday!

  1. Hey Katie, any ideas for hip abductors and adductors without a machine?

    • You can use a resistance band. Step on it, hold the handles by your waist and push one leg out to the side. Or do side steps back and forth each side!
