Yesterday was my first workout this week, yes I have been slacking a bit due to social events but hey it’s all about life BALANCE.
Anyway I pretty much did my usual routine for leg day yesterday. I increased the weight for pull throughs and managed 16kg as the set up pictured above. My squats max is still just 55kg for 3 reps but I am happy with this.
My workout consisted of:
Squats: 10 reps at 40kg then 50kg then 3 reps at 55kg twice
Lunges: 3 sets of 10 reps on each leg holding a 10kg plate
Curtsy lunges: 2 sets of 15 reps holding a 10kg plate
Pull throughs: 3 sets of 10 reps at 10kg, 12kg and 16kg
Stiff legged dead lifts: 3 sets of 10 reps with 25kg barbell
Ab work: 2 sets of 15 reps sit ups holding 8kg medicine ball,
20 reps Russian twists holding 8kg medicine ball
Stretches to finish.
I think I’m going to switch things up a bit next week for legs and have more of a glute focus. I feel my quads are growing a bit more than I would like so I’ll try and drop some quad dominant exercises. Something I also need to increase is cardio, everyone’s favourite! Will let you know what I do for my workout next week and see how I felt about it.
Happy February guys!
