I’ve been seriously slacking on sharing workouts with you all. Besides posting my marathon and half marathon plans, I really haven’t shared anything on the workout front. I’d like for that to change, starting today! I hope you all enjoy what I’m aiming to make a more regular segment on this here blog: Fit Focus!
The goal of Fit Focus posts will be to provide you with workouts toward a specific goal, be it building upper body strength, running intervals, maybe even yoga (when I get a little better at it!). All workouts that I post should be do-able from the comfort of your own home. Soooo no excuses!
Today’s Fit Focus? Legs & Back!
A lot of people dread leg day, but it’s actually one of my favorite strength training routines. As a runner, strong legs are super important. Plus, I never leave a leg workout feeling like I didn’t do enough.
I like to pair a leg workout with some back exercises. For one, the back goes a long way in helping with good running posture and overall flexibility, and two, working in back exercises gives my legs a little break!
So grab some weights, resistance bands, or just use your body weight, and get to it, Sexy Legs!
Not sure what some of these moves look like? Check out these videos tutorials:
squats – front leg raise – deadlift – lunge – stiff leg deadlift – one arm pullover – lateral lunge – jump squats – one arm row – calf raises – back extension
Speaking of getting fit, don’t forget to enter the 20+ fitness giveaways happening right now as part of the Spring Into Fitness Giveaway Blog Hop. I’m giving away 2 entries into a Pretty Muddy 5K of your choice! Head on over and enter!
