Leg Day Quad Focus and Abs


Today was brutal. Leg day that killed! It was great! And note to self, do not do abs on leg day. I knew this somewhere in my head but realized halfway through the ab exercises. They were tough too. The reason for this is quads and glutes are big muscle groups, it is easy to tire out so it made abdominals more difficult. I usually do abs when I do shoulders as shoulders are a very small muscle group.


I did 3 supersets. Supersets are 2 exercises done back to back with 1-2 minute rest in between sets.


Superset 1 (4 sets)

  • Bulgarian split squat w/25# plate 8 reps

  • Hip thrusts 25# plate 15 reps


Superset 2 (4 sets)

  • Leg Extension 21s which is 7 toes up drop weight 10#, 7 toes out drop weight 10#, 7 toes in drop weight 10# 1st 2 sets started with 95#, last 2 sets stated with 80#

  • Sissy squats at leg extension hold 25# plate 10-15 reps

Superset 3 (4 sets)

  • Step ups 1st 2 sets with 20# kettle bell last 2 sets no weight

  • Heels on plate, booty lift with 20# kettle bell



Abdominals - 4 sets of 90 rest as needed, end with 40 crunches for 400 crunches


Set 1- 30 each

  • Legs up crunch up w/25# plate

  • Flutter kick

  • Bug crushers feet up lift hips
