Wow, I think the summer finally arrived just in time for school to start tomorrow! I really feel sorry for all the kids that has to sit in the classrooms with no air conditioning when temperatures are expected to climb into the mid 90th! Another thing that starts tomorrow is my first class over at the warehouse and I am so excited that the time has finally come but that also means that I did my final workout with the girls this past friday!
Unfortunately I was not able to make in over at the warehouse so we meet up over at Lifetime and cranked out an awesome leg workout.
We started out with by warming up the gluts with bridge, glut kickback and walking butt lifts. I know this exercises looks really silly but with a high rep count you get a nice burn going on the backside 😉
Non of us had a lot of time to spare so we hurried into the next circuit where we started out with some stabilization movements and I decided to go heavy on the weights when I started the single leg romanian deadlift followed straight into a reverse lunge with a high knee.
This super set was in combination with some core work where we completed 15 leg raises and Leg pulls from a Pilates ball continuing both working the hamstring and the glut as well the shoulders and the abs.
I would not say this was a walk in the park by any means but we stepped it up another notch and moved over to the leg press and leg extension machine. I decided that we were going to do drop set on both machines and it work well because when we were doing the step up with a jump I really had to fight through the last 5 repetitions. The legs were wobbling as I was walking back towards the machines to take my well deserved rest 😉
This picture was that sharp but you get the gesture 🙂
When the hour was almost up we still had our last circuit for the day and I thought I would end it where I started it. So again I picked up the 25 pound kettlebells and lunged it over the floor and it worked out to be about 30 very hard and heavy steps before I finished it out with pikes and hip abductors on the TRX.
When I woke up yesterday morning my hammies wore quite sore but I can not say this enough, Knut is my true inspiration as he is working his butt off getting ready for the hockey season and I guess I can’t complain cos my bones weren’t sticking out…lol
