Day 3 - Wednesday Legs


To view the weight training video, please click play.

Day 3 is the second part of the workout cycle and will work the quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves. The routine is divided into three parts, the first muscle group that will be trained is the quadriceps (front part of the leg), followed by the hamstrings, and calves will be performed last.

By now, you should be well rested up from Monday's workout. However, if you still feel pretty sore, take another day off

Now, before you get into the workout, I strongly recommend you do a light 5 to 10 minute warm up. This can be anything that gets your heart rate up a bit such as the treadmill, exercise bike, elliptical trainer, jumping rope, running on the spot or whatever else that you enjoy. Remember, this is just a warm up, nothing more.
