Work-Out Wednesday - LEG DAY

Leg day is a love-hate relationship for me in the gym. I work my legs hard, so it leaves my muscles quivering  and wears me OUT – but I love the way my muscles feel when I’m done!
If you are looking to shape your legs, try this single leg circuit to sculpt your muscles quick! Do 2 times a week for 4 weeks.
Bench Step Up - 15 per leg holding 20-25lb dumbbells
Single Leg Squat - One leg on resting on bench behind you, 15 per leg holding 15-20lb dumbbells
Single Leg Stiff Leg Deadlift - 15 per leg, holding 20lb dumbbells
Reverse Lunge - 15 per leg, holding 20lb dumbbells
Split Jump - 20 times total, no weight

Good luck walking back to your car!

My old gym used to have a long staircase that you had to walk down to get to your car. It was brutal after leg days!!! I will have to try a few of these. I've been nervous to go heavy with legs because it is so hard to recover to run the next day. Any suggestions?
