Day 12, Legs and Back

Sarah and I were talking this morning after our workout and we sort of agreed that this workout does not feel as intense as the other weight workouts for whatever reason. I do feel now that I got a good leg workout and I was sweating like crazy but for whatever reason it just seems somewhat easier than the others. Sarah was questioning if you could really build your legs with these exercises, basically a lot of variations on lunges. I think you can and besides your legs are getting a really good workout from the Plyometrics workout as well. Maybe this one is intentionally left a little easier because Plyometrics is in the sequence. There are a lot of these exercises that require good balance as well as strength, this is one of those cases I think they are doing a good job of getting those small stabilizer muscles worked.

My back/hip (think it might be gluteus medius or hip flexor) was still a little sore this morning but loosened up well after warm ups and throughout the workout. It feels pretty good now and I did ice it down last night which may have helped. I think I may have strained it a little doing some of the leg raise exercises in the abs workout incorrectly. I have corrected the form and was able to do all but one of the ab exercises this morning and I expect I will be back to normal by Monday's workout. The abs workout is still a killer, I can't believe how many reps the people on the DVD are able to do although both Sarah and I are getting closer.
