Day 4: Weights – Legs, Cardio – 20 min low intensity

Day 4: Leg day is upon me, and I really feel lucky as my upper body is in tatters from Day 1 – Chest and Triceps and Day 2 – Back & Biceps. In particular my chest and triceps are ruined, even now writing this they still feel sore, success?! 🙂 The cardio activity every day is also taking it’s toll on my Legs, however I’m mentally focused and ready to smash my Leg workout!

Total Workout Time: 1 hr 8 minutes

Cardio: 20 minute low intensity workout on the Cross-trainer,

I usually like to complete my cardio prior to doing my weights work but as this is Leg day, I want my legs to be as fresh as possible when I hit the weights. As a result I pushed tonight’s cardio to the end of the workout. I chose the Cross-trainer as I find it easier on my joints and less taxing on my legs than the bike or treadmill. It was relatively easy to keep my heart rate up and keep a consistent pace for the 20 minutes. After my weights session below I felt that a bike or running session would result in me needing to stop, probably more than once!
Cardio Mood: Good way to round off leg day, Feel satisfied that I have put in a great session.

Weights Work Out: Legs
