I legitimately dread it every time even though I know it’s beneficial and I want to find enjoyment in it

Thursday: Legs

  • Hack squat
  • Incline leg press
  • Leg extension
  • Leg press
  • Seated leg curl
  • jump Rope
  • Cardio treadmill

I usually just do squat, leg press, leg curl, extension, standing calf raise machine, and some hip abductors recently. Maybe take out 1 or 2 or 3 of those exercises lol. I dread leg day for sure but in the fun way where its semi enjoyable getting through it and after

That’s a ton of volume on one day. I wonder how your legs would respond if you split the same volume between two days.

Change your mindset and look on things. Whenever u feel that agonizing pain, think "is that all?" You are the hunter not the hunted. You are in control, not the exercise.

You are not training hard. That's volume NOT intensity.

Hey, I just wanted to follow up on you, how is your leg day going? If you are just starting leg training take it slow. Do a few weeks of just bodyweight movements for legs. 3 days a week work in various movements such as air squats, lunges (forward and reverse), and Bulgarian split squats. Jump squats, wall sits, broad jumps, box jumps.

Hi,

Making leg day more tolerable and finding enjoyment in it can be a challenge, but it's not impossible. Here are some additional tips specifically addressing your leg day workout:

  1. Start with exercises you enjoy: Begin your leg day with exercises that you find more enjoyable or that you feel confident doing. This can help you get into the rhythm and build positive momentum for the rest of the workout.
  2. Break it down into smaller segments: Rather than seeing the entire leg day workout as one daunting session, mentally divide it into smaller segments or circuits. Focus on completing one exercise or set at a time, taking short breaks in between. This can make it feel more manageable and less overwhelming.
  3. Mix up the order: If the set order of your leg day workout is contributing to your dread, consider changing the sequence. Experiment with different arrangements that suit your preferences and make the workout feel less monotonous.
  4. Set specific goals: Instead of just going through the motions, set specific goals for each exercise or set. It could be increasing the weight, improving your form, or achieving a certain number of reps. Having tangible targets can provide a sense of purpose and motivation during your leg day workouts.
  5. Incorporate supersets or circuit training: To add variety and keep things interesting, try incorporating supersets or circuit training. Combine two or more exercises together, performing them back-to-back with minimal rest. This approach can increase intensity, save time, and keep your mind engaged.
  6. Find a supportive community: Seek out a supportive fitness community or online groups that focus on leg day workouts. Interacting with others who share similar goals and experiences can provide encouragement, advice, and even new ideas for leg exercises or workout variations.
  7. Celebrate progress and milestones: Acknowledge and celebrate your progress and milestones along the way. Whether it's increasing the weight you lift, improving your endurance, or reaching new personal records, recognizing your achievements can boost your motivation and make leg day more enjoyable.

Remember, finding enjoyment in leg day may take time and experimentation. Stay open-minded, try different approaches, and focus on the positive aspects of your workouts. If you're still struggling to find enjoyment, it's also perfectly fine to explore alternative exercises or activities that work the leg muscles. The most important thing is to stay active and find a routine that you genuinely enjoy and look forward to.

Fast, available, low prices, and site done right. Among the very few who offer this service in Europe, especially in Italy. The shipments could improve and be slightly faster, for the perfect text.
