50-60 minute weight lifting leg work-out
Today's challenge: Hydration, not snacking because of all the physical activity.
Note on picture: My husband unintentionally picked up some ice cream bars I can eat. These Blue Bunny Toffee Crunch bars are only 130 calories a piece compared to normal sized bars that are around 160 to 180 calories. They are skinnier than the normal sized, but perfect for me and for the kids for after dinner.
Added note: I will be writing an article later today on what I do for my weight lifting leg work-out.
Preview To The Lower Body Work-out
Hello everybody. Welcome new followers!!
I have been putting off writing this article on my weight lifting work-out that I do for my legs because I feel like if you can't see what or how I'm doing the work-out, you won't benefit from the information.
But, that hold-up has just caused me to put off writing anything at all...so here we go without pictures.
There's a lot of different things you can do to sculpt your lower body. I've always thought that running is the best way to make your legs, butt ect... look great. Therefore, I've always done a minimum amount of weight lifting activity on my legs.
Boy was I wrong.
Last year I began weight training my legs two days a week in preparation for a bodybuilding fitness competition. I had to stop my training about five months after I started for various reasons. But, not before I saw and felt the results that the weight training had on my legs.
If you're a runner. Weight training your legs will make you run faster and stronger.
If you just want your legs to look great...wow. Weight training is the ticket.
Now, I understand a lot of people don't have time to weight train their legs for an hour let alone two hours...Maybe you don't even have a gym membership. Depending on the time and access to a facility that you have...I can make some recommendations that will, without a doubt, make a difference on how your legs look and feel.
But not in this post. Sorry.
I just wanted to give you all the heads up that weight training on your legs will do wonders to your legs. I think I'll spend the next few days going over what you can do starting out, up to what I may be soon doing. I currently only work my legs once a week. However, I have been thinking about adding another day.
