Workout plan 1
Day 2: Quads, Hamstrings, Cardio
-start with 5 minutes of cardio of your choice
-move into some quad stretches, followed by some hamstring stretches
-warm-up set of 1/3 of your working weight on the leg press for approximately 10 reps
-move into another set of quads stretches and then hamstring stretches
-warm-up set with 2/3’s of your working weight on the leg press for approximately 10 reps
-take about a minute rest
-3 working sets of leg press in the 5-8 rep range. Take approximately 1-1 1/2 min rest in between sets
-take about a minute rest before you start the triset
You may prefer to use a machine leg press or only have access to one at the gym you go to
Or, you may prefer a plate-loaded leg press
-3 total sets of 10-12 reps.
-squats on smith machine (you can do them free weight if you feel comfortable) + lying leg curls+ leg extensions
-take only 30-45 seconds rest in between sets.
If you feel more comfortable with squats, you may prefer to do them free-weight on a squat rack
You can use the smith machine if you prefer, though.
Also, you may chose to put a pad on the bar for more comfort as you’re doing squats
-to conclude this workout, do 15 minutes of cardio of your choice. I would recommend walking for your cardio on this day. If you do walk, consider putting the treadmill on a slight incline.
