It's been a while since I addressed my workouts but I am still hitting the gym consistently! I've seen strength increases so I'm happy about that! I've been doing strength workouts 4 times a week and cardio 3 times a week purely because I enjoy it!
I no longer do a body part split because I've learned that frequency of exercises utilizing a full body workout is superior to a body part split. It triggers the muscle fibers more often, thereby leading to gains!
Here's a few leg exercises I've been putting together during my full body workouts:
Hip Thrusts 4x10
Barbell Squats 2x10, 4x5, 1x10
Barbell Lunges 4x10 each leg
I begin with Hip thrusts to activate the glutes when I'm trying to focus on glutes. You could alternatively do a leg extension if you want to focus on quads or a hamstring curl if you want to focus more on hamstrings.
Without going to failure (I don't want to fatigue my muscles), I then move on the foundational exercise: barbell squats. Barbell squats are such a good exercise because they are a compound movement that requires a lot of different muscles. I do the first set of ten with just the bar, the second set is a reasonable weight for me and the 4 sets of 5 are pretty much my max weight. The last set of ten I return to a lighter weight and I may incorporate pause squats or pulse squats just for a nice burn lol. Then I finish up with some barbell lunges to really focus on each glute.
This is just something that's been working for me! What does your workout routine look like?
