Get excited. It’s Saturday, AND it’s leg day.
Although I’ve been a fan of upper body workouts lately, leg day is still my favorite workout of any week. I was blessed with thunder thighs, so I basically murder them on leg day, whether that’s with heavy weights and low reps or lighter weights and high reps.
The workout below is a good mix of the two.

Just because the workout is basic doesn’t mean it’s easy.

Do yourself a favor and take a rest day, do yoga or stretch immediately following this workout and the day afterward. Your quads, hamstrings and glutes will thank you.
Let me know what you think if you try the leg workout and/or stretches. I’d love to know!
