Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Work it Out Wednesday: Super Duper Superset Legs

Wiow

Although it’s September, and cozy sweaters are around the corner, there’s no reason to neglect our summer workouts just yet.

Besides, if you’re like me, my training is fairly similar year round. Why put on extra weight in the winter when you can stick to one fairly static regimen (taking into account changing it up every few months of course)?

Today’s leg workout is just that- something to change up your routine and feel the caloric burn!

This is the circuit I’ve been doing the last couple weeks and am loving it. I’ve been lifting hard and heavy, and this routine has been challenging and fun.

I almost always do super (duper ☺️) sets when lifting because it makes the most of my limited time in the gym. Today’s routine is no different.

I didn’t add suggested reps because it’s really up to you and your goals for how many you do.

Perform three sets of each superset, adding in various preferred ab and calves work between each superset.

Is that confusing?

Sometimes it’s hard to clearly explain in writing.

Here’s an example of what I mean:

-Perform the following back to back without rest:

Dead lift
Glute Bridge

-Immediately perform 25 sets of calf raises and 25 leg raises

-Repeat two more times

Make more sense?

Let’s hope.

Okay, so now that I’ve (hopefully) explained the process, let’s get to work!

Warm up:
50 squats w/barbell of choice (I would go pretty light here because the goal is to simply warm up your muscles)

Perform the following chunks of supersets three times each, adding your favorite calves and ab work between each set:

Dead lift
Glute Bridge

Romanian dead lift
Lunge with kick

Hang clean
Step up with kick

One leg squats w/weight
Jumping jacks

Hack press machine
Jump squats

Leg extension machine
Hamstring curl machine

Finisher:
Perform as many hang-clean-presses you can to failure (in good form!)

I use a super light weight on the finisher because I’m exhausted by this point and don’t want to risk injury.

This is a more intermediate move, so just omit or change it up if you don’t want to give it a go!

Here’s a printout you can use to take with you.

Give it a go and challenge yourself to push through!

Check in tomorrow!
