Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was filled with food as usual, and I’ll admit, probably not the healthiest choices. But hey, that’s what weekends are for, right? I did fuel up yesterday because I knew I had a leg workout coming up this morning.
I’m going to post my entire leg workout but I’m focusing on the leg press technique I used. I’ve actually been going this for most all of my leg workouts. It’s a mixture of a superset and rest-pause set and deals with 2 different foot placements. Basically I’m doing 1 set with a close foot placement immediately followed by another set using a wider stance. This is the super-set part but like rest-pause sets, I’m using the same exercise and same weight.

Although I wanted to focus on what I’m calling my ‘Leg Press Superset Foot Placement’ technique there are some other techniques I’m using throughout this workout. I’m also doing some rest-pause sets, drop sets, and super sets. The idea was to exhaust my quads and hams this morning. That mission was accomplished and then some.
I didn’t do any abs or calves but I did walk for 30 minutes. My normal cardio has been walking on a slight incline on the treadmill at a moderate pace. Tomorrow is shoulders and traps, and I’ll throw in some calves.
