Last year, I worked with a personal trainer for a couple of months. He told me that you can actually work out your legs alot more than you think you can because they are the biggest muscles in the body, and they can withstand more work. I found this out the hard way when he made me do 120 lunges while holding a 5-pound weight in front of me the whole time. Then, he said, "Ok...now, let's move over to the machines." Yeah...I could hardly walk for about three days. He was right though. I would not normally push myself to that limit (and I definitely haven't since.) But I got an email a while back with this "Love Your Legs" workout, so I decided to try it tonight. YOWZA!!!! You can find it here: workout.
It says to do this every other day, and I'm definitely going to need a day of rest! I could only make it through the workout twice before I gave out. Of course, now that I'm sitting here and typing, I'm thinking I could probably make it through one more time, but why set the bar too high right off the bat? ;) But I might be going to the beach sooner rather than later, so it's time to get moving!
What leg workouts do you like?
