I have chicken legs.
I’d skip leg day every time if I could… but I don’t.
In my defense, my legs have made some huge improvements over the past few years. HUGE thanks to my Atlanta trainer for
torturing helping me with a great leg workout nearly every Monday for 3 years.
But now I’m on my own in San Diego. I need motivational help… so I turned to clothes. Those Nike Pro shorts I picked up at DICK’s make my quads feel better. (Ok, not really… but I get excited to wear them to the gym.)
My birthday DICK’s Sporting Goods gift card has been well-used. Their layout makes it all-too-easy to find alllll the things. I even got a new sports bra, which is basically unheard of for me. (Side note: this Nike sports bra is the best sports bra I’ve purchased since I got boobs.)
I’ve actually gotten pretty good and making myself *almost* as sore as my trainer did. The key is to ignore the fact that you want to puke and not give a sh*it if you drop the weight. So what if I’m crawling out of the leg press machine? What are youuuuu looking at leg day-skipping boy?
Anyhow, here’s one workout that is sure to leave you with some DOMS. And it incorporates my other trick – if I can’t go up in weight anymore since I’m without a spot, I just increase the reps to build up. Yes, it sucks. Yes, it works.
- Leg Extensions
- Lying Leg Curls
- Leg Press (25 reps)
- Linda Squats (25 reps)
- Seated Leg Curls
- Weighted Walking Lunges (25 steps down & back = 1 set, you can do this with a barbell or dumbbells)

I blame my marvelous mom for these little legs. #sorryimnotsorry
