Working out was never a thing I imagined I’ll be doing because I’m lazy like that lol. But kidding aside, even in my younger years, I was not the type of person whose very active and careful of what I feed my body and this is the main reason why I’m always on the thick side. Anyhow, to make the story short, I have been working out for almost 3 years now and I’m loving it! (Of course, with lots of cheat days on the side 😉) I have to admit, the results I’ve seen was definitely satisfying yet the process of it was extremely hard and PAINFUL!!!! ( I can’t stress the word PAIN enough)
Frankly speaking though, I have been slacking for a couple of months now but I’m slowly getting back to my routine hence the pain I’m feeling right now. Having said that, here is my top 5 leg routine I do to kill my stubborn leg fats and also so we can share the same pain once you tried this killer leg workout!😋
Workout #1 – Star Jump
OOOH this is one painful routine!!!!!!!!!! It looks so easy but once you do at least 5 times of this, your leg will definitely feel the burn. I do this exercise by jumping up and down alternately raising my arms per jump and end it with a deep squat. I do this at least 20 seconds repeating it 5x with a 20 second rest per set.
Workout #2 – Squats
For sure, a lot of you knows what this is already but basically it is just moving your hips back and bending your knees to a sitting position then stand right up again and repeat squeezing your butt everytime. I do this 20 times with 10 seconds rest each set about 5 times.
Workout #3 – Reverse Lunges
This is one of my favorite exercise because it’s not that hard compared to the rest. Basically I do this with a bar adding 20lbs weights resting the bar on a wall and slowly lunging each legs backward, repeating it 5 sets of 20 lunges each leg. You can add more weights if you like or no weights at all – your choice. This targets your butt so do this as many as you can for a bootylicious result. 😆
Workout #4 – Mountain Climber
This techinique is what I call reverse runing exercise which is a lot easier than running and it also targets my ab area which is perfect! Anyhow, basically you do a planking position with palm down and stretched arms ( push up style) then do a running techinique moving each leg alternately towards your chest. I do this 12-20 reps for 5 sets depending on my exercise plan that day 😀😋
Workout #5 – Burpees
To be honest, I hate this exercise but totally worth the pain! This is basically one of my favorite HIIT workout because it does keep my heart rate up and work my entire body not just my legs. I do this 12 reps of 5 sets and trust me, you’ll be dying in pain after just 1 set. So basically, you have to jump first, go on a planking position, end it with a semi squat and repeat.
P.S. There’s a lot of burpees variation so just do what you think is best for you.
Believe me if I say that working out helped me become more focused and careful on what I do with my body because not only it makes me feel proactive, it give me a boost of confidence too – there is no harm in trying and to be a better version of ourselves right? Just a quick reminder though, I am not a licensed professional nor had proper training to do these exercise so please consult a professional first before doing the said workouts.
Having no background with body training, one cheap and best way I do is to watch YouTube tutorials and videos. If you want, I can do a separate entry about who I follow on YouTube that are body goals. Please comment below of you think this is a great idea. Also, 👇🏼 is the link of my leg workout if you want to see it in action 😁🤣😀
I hope that you learned a thing or 2 and if so, please feel free to share your favorite leg exercise.
‘Till my next one mwaaah!
