Anyone else participate in leg day Monday today?
And tomorrow will be leg day Tuesday, followed by leg day Wednesday…. just kidding although it seems that way sometimes. As you all know I've really been focusing on building my glutes and for the first time ever my butt can be seen from my side view haha, no kidding!
It's definitely been a slow process and I didn't really start focusing on this until a couple months ago, so I haven't really been eating at a surplus except on leg day which is probably slowing the process down. Trying to walk the line between building a booty and staying lean for summer is a little tricky but so far so good, although I have a long way to go. Last time I talked about this I got lots of questions as to what I was specifically doing-- basically I work legs/glutes out at least twice a week, most weeks 3 times. I'll do one heavier day and two lighter high rep days. Today was a heavy day and actually the same workout I did last week that left my glutes sore for like 4 days…
Walking lunges with 40lbs 3 x 15 (Take long steps and focus on pushing up with the front leg instead of pushing off with the back leg)
Leg press- 4 x 12-15, 2 sets wide 2 sets close
Hack squat- 3 x 12
Leg extension 4 x 12-15
Glute kickback on lying leg curl machine- 4 x 15
Give it a shot and let me know what you think!
