It’s back to school tiiiiiime! So I started my fifth and final year of college a few weeks ago and am getting adjusted to my new class AND workout schedules. If yallz didn’t notice, I updated my workout page to reflect the changes in my summer and, now that school has started back up again, my current workout schedule. If you missed it, I’m now just working out two days per week about 45 min to an hour each session. On Tuesdays I hit legs and finish with a quick tabata routine, and on Thursdays I do upper body and full body HIIT.
So with a new workout routine comes new workouts! Yayayayaya! I developed two new workouts that I really have been loving. The leg workout that I did yesterday was beastly, and structured in a format that I’ve never done before which makes it way more fun. I must warn you though…your lower half will probably be screaming at you the next day. My glutes are not too happy with me today. The fact that I had to climb an absurd amount of stairs today to get to my classes poured just a little more salt in the wound. So you may want to avoid stairs/any sort of lower body movement following this workout…unless you like putting yourself through that kind of pain. I don’t know, some people like that torture. Whatever floats your boat. Anywhos without further ado….
See what I did there with the school theme 😀
Thought you all would appreciate that.
Now back to the workout…
You can complete this with just your body weight or with extra weights (kettlebells, dumbells, or a barbell). I added weights, so my breakdown looked like this:
1. 30# Single Leg Bulgarian Squats 15×4 Each Side
40# Single Leg Deadlifts (R) x15
40# Single Leg Deadlifts (L) x15
20# Squat Jumps x15
30# Hamstring Extension on Belly x15
40# Reverse Lunge to Kick x15 Each Leg
4. Bodyweight Elevated Pistol Squats 15×4 (Cause these things are HARD)
* To elevate myself, I use a bench that I have in my room. You can use a sturdy chair or a similar surface.
End with a quick 4 minute tabata, give yourself a gold star and call it a day.
