Focus on your legs workout

by forloveofcarrots on March 6, 2012

A little while ago I started the Jamie Eason’s LiveFit trainer 12 week program. I started phase 1 about 3 weeks before my half marathon training started. As I mentioned before the bulk of my training will be in long runs on the weekend. I still want to keep strength training in my routine. The LiveFit plan is great but after phase 1, it focuses more on strength training and less on cardio. At this moment I need to make sure I am doing both.

For a few weeks now I have been doing phase 1 every week and trying to challenge myself with the weights. For fear of burn out from doing the same thing I decided it was time to mix things up. So the other day I came up with a leg workout to challenge different muscle groups I was neglecting. I was feeling the burn during and after the workout. This workout took about 30 mins.
