Monday Leg Day

Monday Leg Day

by Curtis Kloc

Are you a procrastinator? Do you know what you should be doing? But not doing it? Are you reading an article about a better way to do what you need to do and never actually getting around to it?

Well, it’s Monday morning and I know you think you had a hard training weekend and you need to recover. You do, but let’s get that leg workout out of the way first thing on a Monday morning. All you need is 30-40 minutes and two dumbbells somewhere between 10lbs and 30lbs (5kg and 15kg), depending on your current strength level. Don’t be an A type and overdo it and pull something with a weight that is too heavy.

This will work all of your leg muscles, including your glutes and the inside & outside of your hips. And you’ll feel great knowing you got your leg workout done for the week. You can even post some leg day memes on your Facebook page or post on the Team MaccaX page.
