Thank you, DLB! Blazing new ground and leaving scorched earth. And thanks to Rob Bailey for sharing your training with all of us. I know there were a couple other ladies who did this workout today, too. We were sharing a little on Facebook. Seems like we all kicked our own butts.
I saw this video yesterday and it inspired me for today’s leg workout.
Here is what I did:
Leg Extensions: 7 sets of 10 reps, 10 second rests. Started with 60 pounds, increased to 75, then back to 60 when I couldn’t handle 75 anymore.
Leg Press: 180(20 reps)/ 270(15)/ 360(12)/ 450(10)/ 540(10)/ 630(10)/ 720(10 partial reps)
Front Squat: 65(10)/90(6)/110(5) – form correction & started box front squats – 90(6)/90(7)
Barbell Glute Bridge (new exercise for me): 95(10)/95(10)/135(10)
Walking Lunges: Bodyweight 60 reps x 3 sets
Leg Curl: 60(10) x 3 sets
Doesn’t seem like much when I list it like this, but it was a great workout. Not nearly as intense as DLB’s. The lunges + curl supersets killed me at the end. I had to fight hard to get those leg curls done. It was an awesome way to finish. For a cool down, I walked on the treadmill slowly for 10 minutes. When I stepped down off it, that step down felt so much bigger than I remembered it. I was a little wobbly walking out to the car.
I finished it almost six hours ago and my legs still feel weak and mushy. Glutes are a little sore already. Shoulders might be bruised from the front squats. I’m very happy.
