80 Day Obsession: Day 5 – Legs

Hey everyone!!

The sun is shining and it’s Friday what better way to start the day off right than a nice sweaty leg workout bright and early in the morning? Last night before I went to bed my hamstrings were a little tight so I rolled them out, but they were still a little tight this morning. One thing that I will say about the moves that Autumn Calabrese chose for the workouts she did a good job of picking moves that really incorporate a lot of different muscles even when you are supposed to be targeting a specific area.

This mornings workout was legs one of my personal favorites. The workout consists of 3 series each containing 3 moves. We did 2 sets of 15 reps each for a total workout of 46 minutes. The only thing that you need for this workout are weights, though if you are a beginning you would be able to do these with just body weight.

LEGS
PHASE 1 | DAY 5
2 SETS • 15 REPS

SERIES 1
Reverse Lunges
Squats
Curtsy Lunges

SERIES 2
Sumo Squats
Front Diagonal Lunges
Twisting Back Angle Lunge

SERIES 3
Single-Leg Good Morning
Hip Hinge
Buddha Squats

Now if you are just looking at the above list of moves you will see that this is not your typical leg day workout. Sure there are lunges and squats but the variations that she put on the moves really made the workout feel fresh and challenging. I will say that I feel I hit all the areas of my posterior chain and was able to burn over 300 calories in 45 minutes not a bad workout at all!

Its really refreshing to see that even Autumn Calabrese has a side that has better balance and even she can find some of the moves challenging. This is just another reason it feels like we are going through this process together and getting through it together.

I know it’s only day 5 so ask me again in another 50 or so days but doing these workouts in the morning is such a great way to get me up out of bed and active. I am able to get my workout in before leaving for work and leave my evenings free! So far I am really enjoying all the workout types and there is still more to come.

If you want more you can follow along with my journey over on instagram @allisonshapesup, and if you have any questions or comments I’d love to hear from you!

Until tomorrow,

Allison
