LEG DAY! I love the hack machine, because whenever I’m training legs alone, I can still go heavier without a spotter. I went into this workout not expecting anything fantastic since Joe wasn’t there to spot me(Well Jill, that’s the wrong mindset to have) but I was still determined to get a decent workout because I haven’t been hitting legs as often as I would like, and that is where I want to grow(need my hammies to catch up). .
Well daaaaaannng, did I surprise myself- this turned out to be a killer workout, and I needed that. I needed that reminder that I can push myself on leg day with or without a spotter. I had been struggling with squat form lately, and honestly the last 2 leg days, I have gone myself and recorded myself for form check, and nailed my form first try. THAT MOTIVATES THE HELL OUT OF ME! I literally did a little dance in the gym(no shame)💃🏻💁🏻 I got my squat mojo back lol!
I wanted to share this because, I think I had started to become so used to Joe giving me cues during training that I wasn’t focusing enough on what my body was actually doing. It’s easy to rely on things like this- try training without a mirror, I’ve done that too, but sometimes it takes really zoning out to get in touch with your body, the movements, ect. Somethings take more time to get down than others, but keep at it- the more you practice, the more you improve!
LOL long a** caption, opps! 🤷🏻♀️ The workout: all exercises were 5 sets each and I pretty much did 20-25 reps each or AMRAP. I superset the first 2 Hack Squat exercises and superset the last 2 exercises of this workout. Hammies and glutes were burning soooo good! 🔥 #mondaymotivation #MindsetIsEverything
