Hey’o! I’m SO excited to share my first workout video with you guys! I was out of the gym for about 2 weeks, so I wanted to get a really well-rounded leg workout in. If you’ve been struggling to get yourself in the gym, check out my post on how to start working out! After a nice warmup on the stair master and some air squats to activate my leg muscles, I got down to business.
Stair master tip: Don’t lean forward and hold yourself up with your arms – that’s cheating. Stand up straight, tuck your pelvis in, and drive through your heels. You’ll feel the difference and get those booty gains in.
Below is a list of my entire workout yesterday, along with a video! If you aren’t sure of how to properly do these exercises, I’d highly recommend googling them. Form is the most important thing when working out. You don’t get the full benefits of each workout when you sacrifice form. Not to mention, you run a high risk of getting injured.
You should be increasing your weight by 5lbs after each set. This helps build strength and keeps your muscles from getting lazy.
I normally do 4-5 exercises per workout, but since I’ve been out of commission for a bit, I couldn’t manage. ALWAYS listen to your body. Pushing yourself too hard will only set you back in the long run.
Please feel free to reach out to me with questions or comments on any of these workouts!
