Leg Day Lovin’

Today was leg day and it just might be becoming my favourite day!  I was able to get new personal bests in my stiff leg deadlift, leg extension, and leg curl.  My routine included:

  • Smith Machine Squat – 95 x 12, 105 x 12, 115 x 12, 125 x 12
  • Stiff Leg Deadlift – 75 x 12, 85 x 12, 95 x 8
  • Leg Extension (machine) – 90 x 10 (twice), 70 x 12
  • Leg Curl (machine) – 80 x 10 (twice), 90 x 10
  • Barbell Standing Calf Raise – 45 x 20 (3 times)

This time I made sure to include a brief warmup and cool down to hopefully minimize DOMS later on.  I started with a 1000m erg that took 4:15 and ended with 5 minutes on the ARC trainer and a 5 minute stretch.  

Oh, and another one of my coworkers got a gym membership today to join in on the lunchtime workouts.  I guess the endorphins are contagious 🙂 Once again I recovered with a vanilla vega protein shake.  

My plan is to run hills tomorrow on my lunch break and then depending on how I’m feeling maybe hit up the gym after work for a little arm and ab session.  We shall see.  I will post more later! 


Day 1

Alright, I have a very busy day today and as I’ve mentioned, I have to make INSANITY a priority in order to fit it in. Today I packed up my workout clothes and brought them to work so that I could do day 1 over my lunch break. It’s coming up to noon now and I’m just sneaking out of my office to get changed.

Day 1 calls for Plyometric Cardio Circuit which is approximately 40 minutes. I am so curious as to how it’s going to go. My coworkers told me that I could use the office space to workout in as they will go sit outside for lunch today (it’s 22 degrees Celsius and sunny; simply a glorious day).

Wish me luck!
