It’s Leg Day!

Monday calls for LEG DAY in my books! And I wanted to share one of my very own leg days with you guys. Make sure you’re engaging the glutes and focus on that mind-muscle connection. It is so important! This workout is 3 x 20, so don’t be afraid to lower the weight a bit if you need to!

Let me know what you guys think if you give this LEG workout a go! Tag me in your Instagram, or comment on one of my Instagram pictures and tell me how it went! I want to hear from you guys!

Warm up: 5 – 10 minutes

I like to start ALL my leg days with some GLUTE ACTIVATION to really get the blood flow to those muscles, and get them really firing!  I like grab a small rubber resistance band, and put it around my shins and do the following exercises:

• Lateral banded walks

• Backwards and forwards banded walks (keeping tension in the band and pushing my feet to the side as I take a step).

• Banded kick backs

• Standing banded hip abductions

• Banded air squats (making sure that I engage my glutes with every single rep, to bring me back to standing. You’re butt should be on fire by the end of this routine!

EXERCISE 1:

* Do a warm up set (or two) on each exercise to activate that muscle, increase your body temperature and get you mentally prepared for your workout! *

Front Squats (3×20)

EXERCISE 2:

Leg Extensions (3×20)
