LEGS FOR DAYSSSS: The VL Leg Workout

Uncategorized

Many of you asked and so here it is! My leg workout!

Now before we actually dive in, I must say that I am a former track, swimming, and rugby athlete so sometimes my workout can be rigorous. I am NOT A professional or certified physical trainer. If you do attempt to do this workout and it is too much for you. Please stop and rest. This workout is at your own risk.

I would advise starting out slow and with less repetitions (reps) and then work your way up to my workout. If you’re more advanced, of course add more reps or more weight!

Here it is! My leg workout! Now I do this once a week (the other days are designated for other areas of the body!)

I do my work outs in the morning so if I am running short on time, I split it up between the days.

There are a couple downloadable videos within the post just in case you’re wondering how some of it is done.

 

 

  1. CARDIO
    1. 15 minute run or 10 minutes on the stair master
  2. SQUATS
    1. 3 sets of 10 reps at 90 lbs
    2. 3 sets of 10 reps at 115 lbs
    3. 3 sets of 10 reps at 135 lbs IMG_1539
  3. LEG PRESS
    1. 3 sets of 10 reps at 90 lbs
    2. 2 sets of 10 reps at 90 lbs left leg and then right leg (keep the other leg up as support, just in case it is too heavy)IMG_1533
  4. CALF RAISES
    1. 3 sets of 15 reps at 30lbs
  5. LUNGES
    1. 3 sets of 10 reps with weights or without weights depending on how I feel. I normally use 15-20 lbs dumbbell weights. Sometimes if I am really inspired, I will use the bar which equates to 45 lbs. IMG_1540
  6. STRETCH!!! This is SO important because you want to relieve muscle tension and loosen up. This also helps to prevent injuries.

That is all! If you try this workout, please let me know how this workout works out for you (ha! Get it?)! You can email me at vanessalandlt@gmail.com. If there is anything else that you would like to see please let me know!
