strength training: leg workout

Today I did a moderate intensity lower body workout.  A moderate intensity strength training session involves doing sets of 8-10RM.  Rest between sets was less than 2 minutes.  For most of the exercises I performed 3 sets.  You may recognize some of theses exercises from the Ultimate Results newsletter.

Today’s exercises:

  • backward lunge
  • straight legged deadlift (SLDL)
  • single leg squat and pull
  • incline hip lift (heel is elevated on a 4 inch step to increase difficulty)
  • squat and touch
  • cable pull through

The cable pull through is an excellent exercise if you are wary of doing deadlifts or are new to the weight room.  I highly recommend giving it a try!
