A Vigorous Leg Workout

by Joanne on June 9, 2009

What a storm last night! I woke up to the sound of rain falling in buckets.  My thoughts were “it can’t possibly rain like this when Shane and I go outside”.  Not sure what time the rain was falling so heavily but when I woke up to work out, it had subsided.  When Shane and I left the house, it wasn’t raining.  I took my hat just in case and by the time we got home, about 40 minutes later, it was raining again.  When Ted went out side, 5 minutes after our return home, it began chucking it down. 


The workout:

  • Warm up:  About 35 minutes on Elliptical and Treadmill. I was watching “How To Boil Water” with Tyler Florence so when the commercials came on, I hopped on the treadmill. The TV is difficult to hear when you are running on the T/M.
  • Legs:  Squats 5 sets x 12 reps. Walking Lunges 4 sets x 10 -14 steps. Dead lifts 4 sets x 12 reps. Leg Press 3 x 12 reps and 1 x 20 reps. Seated Leg Curls 1 x 15 reps and 3 sets x 12 reps. Cable M/C Inner & Outer Thigh and Hip Extensions 4 sets x 10 reps.  Leg Extensions 4 sets x 12 reps. Calf Raises 4 sets x 25 reps.  Crunches 4 x 20 reps.

The breakfast:


  • 6 green grapes
  • 1/2 orange
  • 1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill5 Grain Cereal + Peach Apricot Honeybush Tea Bag + Cinnamon + Dried Cranberries.
  • VPXVanilla Protein Shake with FUZE.
