Don’t forget your legs!

Hey guys, I’m back with another good work out.  This one is for the legs and it should leave you with a nice, healthy sore for tomorrow.  Legs are something that not a lot of people like to do so they often go undone, but legs are some of the most important muscles of your body!  You get all your power from your legs for most sports and for running for sure.  When working out legs its important to use proper form and to stretch out because you don’t want to hurt your knees or back or pull a muscle.

For starters get on the exercise bike for about 5-10 minutes at a moderate intensity – this will get the blood flowing to your muscles, and its always good to get your muscles warm before you stretch them out.

Next stretch out your legs. For a good stretch routine click here! If you don’t want to do this stretching just make sure you hit all the major muscles before you get started, here are some other good stretches:


Now here’s the work out:

3×10 dumbbell lunges (use whatever amount of weight is good for you! I use 30 or 35 pounds)

3×10 hamstring curls

3×10 quadricept extension

3×10 calf raises

After that its good to get in another quick stretch when your done but its not necessary, especially if you don’t have the time!  This workout should take no more than an hour and you’ll feel great tomorrow.  So give it a try and tell me what you think!
