The WOW, or Workout of the Week, is a short workout that you can do on your own as an add-on to your training. These workouts are designed to be mostly equipment free (so you can do them anywhere) and of medium to high intensity. Modify as needed depending on your fitness level and intensity needs.
We’re going Old School with a “Leg Day” workout, but we think every day should be Leg Day.
This workout targets all your major leg muscles (quads, hamstrings, and calves) and even hits the glutes as an added bonus. Pair this workout with last week’s WOW if you want to do a full body workout.
This is a descending ladder workout: 10 – 8 – 6
The ladder applies to the first 3 exercises – you’ll do 10 on each leg for each exercise for the first round, 8 on each leg for the second round, 6 on each leg for the third round. You’ll finish each round with 24 Single-Leg Calf Raises.
Bulgarian Split Squats
24 Single-Leg Calf Raises
Make sure to warm-up before each WOW. Some suggestions are a minute or two of jumping jacks, jogging, or stair walks. Then do two to three minutes of 10 squats, 10 push-ups, 10 half roll backs, and 10 bird dogs. Do the squats and push-ups at an easy-for-you modification.
