Legs! Legs! Legs!

Guess what my favorite muscle group to train is. Well, if you guessed legs ... you're right! I love leg days because I always feel so strong after my workouts. When I was working really hard to build muscle, I loved pushing myself to see how much I could lift. Now that I'm in a maintenance routine I don't lift so heavy, but I still love it.

Check out my current leg routine.

Smith machine squats: 3 sets of 10 reps @ 135 lbs
Straight bar deadlifts: 3 sets of 10 reps @ 80 lbs
Leg extensions: 3 sets of 10 reps @ 125 lbs
Ball squats: 3 sets of 10 reps w/ 15 lbs dumbbells
Glute kickbacks: 3 sets of 10 reps @ 25 lbs
Standing calf raises (machine): 3 sets of 10 reps @ 90 lbs
