I am sitting on the deck sipping my afternoon coffee in the sun trying to ignore the leg pain that is slowly creeping up on me. I’m wondering how I am going to be able to walk in any kind of heels tomorrow when we are going down town for a girls night out.
Todays workout was all about the legs and we started off with 120 step up with a high knee to get the blood flowing before we brought out the weights. We were working with the TRX as well as we were using the machine and free weights and the first circuits we hit the backside really hard.
I hate doing weighted squats because my technique is far from good. I think it has to do with my calves because every time I’m practicing and doing it perfect I tilt backwards and I almost end up on my behind. I will say that mrsT is a great motivation to work legs with because even if she is very petit she is strong as an ox and the only thing I can do is try to keep up. She constantly raising the bar and I tell, you she squats heavy! So at the end of the second circuit after finishing the leg press, squat, walking lunges, kettlebell swing and leg extensions my legs wobbled when I once again walked over to the TRX for our last and final circuit.
And who would have thought that TRX would surprise once again and s**t it was hard but so much fun. We started with putting one foot through the loop and then we did “mountain climbers” sort of but the free leg is going up high while the restrained leg is going underneath you. Everything hurts… legs, abs, arms you name it… this most be my absolutely favorite TRX exercise ever!
After 15 reps we went into hip raises and squat jumps that completed this kick ass workout.
