My hubby was promoted again. I am super proud of his accomplishments He was promoted from General Manager to Area Manager, so basically now he runs several stores. This not only changes up his schedule, but mine as well.
With the change in schedules, we also made some changes in my training. I always welcome change I am 7 weeks out now, so we have been making the necessary tweaks to really bring out as much definition as possible. We made the changes last week and I’m not going to lie, it has been intense. The past two weeks have had me completely wiped out and more sore than I have ever been! I thought I trained hard before……now I question everything ha ha ha ha
I have had a few who have asked what changes I have made, so I figured it is always easier to just post it
Monday now serves as Leg day. My leg training is now also one of my semi metabolic training sessions. Basically meaning it is very fast paced and there is little to no rest between sets/exercises. I do a couple of fast paced and very heavy supersets. I have been doing these supersets for a while, but the weight has gone up greatly and the pace is so fast. Not unheard of for me to get sick mid training on Mondays. I usually carry some plastic bags with me just in case.
I start as I have been with my superset of Front/Back squats. Before I would take 30 secs or so between the two, now it is go go go. I am also going heavier. I use to start at 65lbs and go up to 95lbs Now I am starting at 75lbs going up to 115lbs. 4 sets. These are done ass to grass no half reps
From there we head over to the lying leg press. This I also still do a superset with these wide then narrow with my foot placement, but the weight amount has gone up dramatically. I use to do 4 sets starting at 135 and ending at 300lbs Now I start at 225 go up to 365 5 sets. Josh will probably push to do 6 set next week and make me go up in weight. These are done knees to chest no half reps.
Getting deep as you can with squats and leg press is imperative to growing glutes and hamstrings. This gives that round lifted booty look.
Next instead of lying leg curls I now do kneeling leg curls. I do 5 sets no rest between start at 30lbs go up to 60lbs Another awesome way to really target glutes and hammies
Next up is Leg Extensions. Not much changed with this except now I go slower in my movements. Really squeezing my quads as tight as I can at the top of the movement then slowly moving my legs back down. I also do 5 sets of these starting at 70lbs going up to 120lbs
Last but not least I do standing calf raises. I use to use the leg press at the other gym, but I like this machine better. I still do the superset with my toes pointed out, in, and straight I do 3 sets of 8 with each position. (24 total reps per set)
Yes I am hardly walking when I leave ha ha. That is not the end of my training for the day. You can add 40 mins of posing practice as well as 15 mins of HIIT the treadmill 5 mins warmup and 5 mins cool down for a total of 25 mins.
Motivation Monday has been a HUGE help for me to get the week started. Monday is probably the hardest day of training for me now. I definitely still enjoy leg day, but it has been taken to a whole new level!!!
