Hi I'm Kristy Lee Wilson. I am a personal trainer and performance enhancement specialist. My website is www.kristywilson.com, and today I'm going to be taking you through a great gym workout for the legs. So today's leg workout is going to consist of four super sets. A super set involves performing two exercises back to back with no rest in between. The first super set we are going to do is going to be squats with a lateral lunge. So to perform the squat we are going to use a barbell. Place the barbell on the back of the shoulders. Feet about hip-width apart. You are going to sit back on the heels like you are sitting down into a chair, keeping the knees in line with the toes. Core engaged. Press through the heels to stand back up. Fifteen to twenty repetitions of the squat. Then you are going to go straight into a lateral lunge. You want to step out to the side. Sit back into that hip. Come down nice and low. Thigh about parallel to the ground. Press through the heel to come back up. Fifteen to twenty repetitions both sides. Perform two to three sets of that super set. And then we'll go on to set number two. Super set number two is going to be a stiff leg deadlift with a jump lunge. Again keep the reps nice and high, 15 to 20 repetitions of each exercise. So the stiff leg deadlift again we are going to use a barbell. You want the feet about hip width apart. Knees slightly bent. You don't want to lock out the knees. Keep the knees slightly bent. Sitting back on the heels, all the weight is on the heels. You are going to bend at the hips keeping that back nice and straight. Keep the bar close to the legs. You should feel a stretch in your hamstrings here. Press up through the heels really squeeze that butt as you come up. Then we are going to go straight into a jump lunge. So you are going to start in a lunge position. Knee in line with the toes. Thigh parallel to the ground. Keep the chest up. Press through the leg, you are going to jump up, switch and keep alternating. You want to do about 20 repetitions total. Rest 45 - 60 seconds go back to the beginning. Back to that stiff leg deadlift. Super set number three is gong to be a step up with a Bulgarian split lunge. So the step up you are going to start foot up on a bench. You want to press through the heal, press through the heal. Come up keeping that knee in line with the toes. And then slowly lower back down. Come up and then slowly come back down. Fifteen to twenty repetitions each side. Then you are going to go straight into a Bulgarian split lunge. Place the toe on the back. You want to sit back, come down. Really feel that glute working. Thigh parallel to the ground. Then press through that heel to come back up. I'm Kristy Lee Wilson, and we just went through a great gym workout for the legs.
