Today’s Leg Workout with Post Leg Workout Meal
You’re getting a double whammy today. I was initially just going to post my post leg workout meal (really, it’s my 2nd post workout meal). But this morning’s leg training was so brutal that I decided I’d post the workout as well. We hit a lot of sets, reps and total training volume for legs today. The toll that leg training takes on your body, this is of course if you’re training hardcore, requires more calories and essential nutrients to kick-start the recovery process. So I’m tying everything together here.
Leg Press (warm ups): 2 sets x 12 reps
Leg Press: 10 sets x 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 reps
Hack Squats (feet close): 4 sets x 10 reps
Seated Leg Curls: 4 sets x 12 reps
Lying Leg Curls: 4 sets x 15 reps
Leg Extensions: 4 sets x 12-15 reps
Outer Abductor Machine: 4 sets x 15 reps
Leg day was certainly exhausting and fatiguing this morning. The multiple sets of the ridiculous amounts of reps on leg press really hit us hard. Most of the reps on the following exercises were slow and controlled, and for some we even used negative reps. We kept a ton of tension on the muscle and walked out with a solid pump.
Post Leg Workout Meal (2)
Meal 1: Typical Protein Shake
2 scoops of Whey
Scoop of All Natural Peanut Butter
Meal 2: Whole Food Meal (hour after shake)
4 Whole Eggs
2 Packets of Grits
2 Packets of Oatmeal
1 Glass of Orange Juice
I always have what I consider two post workout meals. The shake above has been my go-to post workout shake. And about 45 minutes to an hour later I cook an egg-based post workout meal. This is fairly typical although I usually have either grits or oatmeal, not both. And often times I drink a glass of water instead of orange juice (I usually drink orange juice on the weekends). But after this morning’s leg training I wanted more calories and more carbs. I think I did a good job in getting them!
