Legs Quickie, 5/29/2012

Yesterday, Ella, Doha and I did a quick little leg day.  All three of us needed to get in and out of the gym quickly, so here’s the workout I put together.  It was still pretty good!  Too bad I didn’t notice my heartrate monitor hadn’t picked up my pulse until long after the workout ended.  POOP!

Circuit 1 (three times)

  • Hack squats on machine, added 60 lbs (x10)
  • A situp that takes you only up to a modified boat pose, then 3 arm pulses to tap your knees, staying leaned back.  Lay back down, vertebra-by-vertebra, then come up for the next rep (x10)
stay leaned back like this awesome hippie chick, for the full effect.
  • 20 jumping lunges

Circuit 2 (three times)

  • sumo squats with 20-lb kettlebell (x15), then hold the squat but up on your toes for an additional 15 seconds
  • cable deadlifts (x15)
  • plank with leglift, holding each leg up for 15 sec, then switch legs (x2 each leg)

Circuit 3 (three times)

  • reverse plank (30 sec, rest 5 sec, 30 sec again)

  • clam diggers (x15 each side)
  • Turkish getups with 10-lb kettlebell (x4)

See? I told you it was quick.  There wasn’t a ton of cardio, but I still got sweaty.  The whole thing took about 45 minutes.  If you’re new to circuit training or weightlifting, this might be a good workout to start with.  =)
