Wednesday, January 27th Workout - Leg Day - Thighs, Butt and Calves

The last time I did leg day I felt like the hamstring curl and the quad extensions were a little too easy so, with my trainers' approval, I went up to 10 lb ankle weights instead of 5's on the quad extensions and from the green band (10-12 lbs) to the heavier black band (15-20 lbs) and felt like I got a much better and tougher workout. I also held the moves for about 3 seconds each which also made me work harder.

No cardio today because now my lower body is exhausted but planning for it with push day tomorrow!
