It’s finally Spraaaang breaaaaak so I had a little extra time to film a circuit that I did after an absolutely ridiculous leg workout (I’ll post that more toward the bottom).
Then last night, I decided to get creative and make a fun video out of it!
Now, I know I don’t have the newest Canon or Nikon camera (as a college student I don’t have that kind of bling…yet) so my little iPhone 6 had to suffice…
Regardless, I was absolutely ecstatic about it – ask my Mom! She sat next to me the entire time I giggled away about how cool my music sounded, how spot-on my transitions were, and how I couldn’t wait for people to be like “OMG Sabrina, that was an awesome circuit!” LOL. If you’re reading this, don’t let me down! ;P
Here’s the video, and my actual leg workout will be posted below! If the video doesn’t play correctly, click here!
*These exercises do require some resistance bands, but if you don’t have them…no worries! Just do the circuit without them!
My Leg Day Workout:
*Warm up: 10 minute on the elliptical; hamstring dynamic stretches; hip opening exercises; calf circles*
- Smith machine static lunges (Left leg)
Again ^ (Right leg)
*This is a superset, so keep going without rest
- Smith machine squats
Progressive overload style (for each load add a little bit more weight)
*No more than 60 second rest in between sets
- Smith-Sumo deadlifts (Really focused on my form here because I’m practicing my DLs!)
- Banded hip thrusts (used a barbell) x15
Banded hip thrusts (body weight) x10
Banded squat jumps x10
*THIS IS MADNESS – GOOD LUCK >:) *
- One legged calf raises on incline
AKA: Stand on something so when your food comes down, you get a nice stretch in your calf before raising back up
7 x 7 for each leg – keep your movement slow and controlled
- Pull ups *OPTIONAL* 4×10
(I’m adding these into my workout because I’m practicing to get to in-assisted level)
Banded standing kick-backs 4×15
Resistance band around ankles, and straight leg kick back; both legs
- Back extensions 3x20
Squeeze that booty & don’t hyper-extend!
- Side lunges (Left)
^ Again (Right)
- BURN OUT CIRCUIT VIDEO ^^^
I can’t feel my legs today. WOO.
Have an amazing week my friends!
