Fit Friday-Leg burnout plus abs

Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone had a great week, and if not, at least it’s the weekend!

I typically workout before work, but this morning I decided to sleep in and do my workout after work. My motivation is much lower by the end of the day, but I knew once I got to the gym I would feel so much better (and I did). Tonight’s workout was a pretty high intensity leg workout, which kept my heart rate up the whole time. It is definitely a keeper.

The workout:

Start with 5-10 minutes on any cardio machine, just enough to get your heart rate up (I did a 5 minute treadmill build).

Do the circuit below 3 times before moving to the next one:

  • 12 barbell walking lunges
  • 10 barbell lunge pulses each leg (try to get as low as possible in the lunge, then pulse from there)
  • 16 lunge jumps (drop weights-or do light weights)

Do the circuit below 3 times before moving on to the next one:

  • 12 DB squats (hold the weight in front of you, up to your chest)
  • 20 DB squat pulses (get as low as you can, then pulse)
  • 16 star jumps

Do the circuit below 3 times before moving on to the next one:

  • 16 DB calf raises
  • 12 side bends with plate (both sides)
  • 20 plank jacks (get in a plank, the jump the legs in and out)

Do the circuit below 3 times

  • 16 weighted pikes (abs)
  • 12 leg extension
  • 20 mountain climbers
  • 12 leg curls

Well, that’s it! Try to spend a few minutes cooling down and stretching. My legs are already feeling the burn.

I hope everyone has an awesome, safe weekend!

With love,

Carly
