On Saturday I ended up with a little time to kill while I was waiting for my daughter Molly to be dropped off with me, so I decided to do a short and light leg workout. Since I’m not able to do much weight at all yet with my recovering leg, I think I will do well to add in some short workouts more frequently. Such was the case on Saturday afternoon
Horizontal Squat Machine Single Leg 3 sets 15 reps each leg
Smith Machine Squats 4 sets 15 reps ( was able to descend below parallel)
Like I said these were really light, but my weak leg was straining and shaking, none the less.
Today I went for the full leg workout. My left leg was feeling much better after dancing on Friday and Saturday nights, and my abbreviated workout on Saturday. I’m pushing it to the point of muscular failure, or until I start feeling pain at the tendon insertion.
Smith Squats 6 sets 20 reps
Leg Press 5 sets 20 reps
Horizontal squat machine sing leg 3 sets 10-12 reps each leg
Leg Ext single leg 4 sets of 12-20 reps each leg
Seated Leg Curl 4 sets 10-15 reps each leg
Lying Leg Curl single leg 3 sets 8-10 reps each leg
Standing calf raise 5 sets 12-15 reps
Doing so many exercises one leg at a time takes forever!!!
