My different kind of leg workout!


I like to have fun on my Friday workouts. Since I come from an athletic background, this is my day to throw in some activities I love. Now, my focus today is my hamstrings, and my glute-ham tie-ins. You know who has great hamstrings? Gymnasts and Sprinters…both of which I used to be in a past life. So I decided to work it out old school style, incorporating things I did while active in those sports, while still doing some new stuff too.

Circuit 1 - 3 sets

15 TRX Lying Hip Lift (KILLER on the hamstrings. We’re talking insta-cramp good)
10 Depth Drops (30inches) to squat, rebound to jump. These are great for eccentrically loading those hammies. No recommended for beginners.
25 Walking Lunges with 80 lb barbell
10 Med Ball (20lbs) slams combined with jumping lunges

Circuit 2 - 3 sets

15 TRX Hamstring Curls (still ouchie!)
12 Depth Drop to immediate 10yd sprint
10 each leg TRX Single leg squat jumps

Circuit 3 - 4 sets

15 TRX Squat Jumps
30 jumping lunges
25 deadlifts with 80lb barbell.

This is a sweaty messy workout and I burned 400 calories, so have fun!

  1. obviously like your website but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to tell the reality however I’ll surely come back again.
