Exactly as it says… it’s all about the legs and a PROPER good leg day!
This is day 1 and we will be completing mainly compound movements to recruit more muscles, so we work a lot of muscles even though this workout consists of a smaller number of exercises!
These are the favourite key exercises for the legs… over the next few weeks will come so many variations and formats!
The staple is high squats! Lower slowly, gaze straight ahead and chest up throughout! Avoid excessive jarring of those knees at the top!
All you will need for this leg day workout is a pair of dumbbells, a yoga block and your mat for cool down!
The dumbbells Content Creator is using for your reference are 10kg each!
A longer duration per exercise however that will not necessarily mean more reps completed… you will notice Content Creator is focused on each rep and taking it slow and to the best range of motion We can whilst controlling the movement… and no jerking! No excessive locking out of knees at top of movement. Aim for smooth transition between the rising and lowering portions.
You will also notice during the RDLs, We really slow this down. 60 seconds is a long duration so pace yourself but use this opportunity to really ‘feel’ the hamstrings lengthen and aim to increase the stretch gently with each rep but retracting shoulders even more, chest more proud, hips back & up!
The timer will be on for 60 seconds per exercise with 30 seconds rest inbetween!
You will notice We complete the 100 rep finisher in the own time. We pause when We feel the next rep will not be performed correct and even though aiming to complete a number of reps, Content Creator is under no pressure to complete in one go. We would stress the importance to perform this to suit you. Options include to complete the reps in a time that suits you so this may be slightly quicker than or longer. Or you may wish to follow and complete as many as you can with great form and simply finish with irrelevant of number of reps reached. This advice applies to every finisher within the EPICEndgame workouts.
This was a lot of reps within the 40 minutes so We will be resting the legs with just a relaxed walk today… so Content Creator is feeling ready for glutes on Wednesday!
I hope your legs love this as much as mine did! 🤩
