Day 4 Workout: Legs/Calves

Here is my workout for Day 4. Oh LEGS AGAIN?! Yes, out of my 4 day gym plan, I have decided to work on my legs twice a week because I have small legs and doing legs just give me such an awesome workout! Also, I work on my legs twice because I wanted to work the two major groups of leg muscles separately, namely my quads and my glute/hammies. What’s the difference? The quads (or quadriceps) are the group of leg muscles above the knee that faces the front. The hammies (or hamstrings) are the leg muscles above the knee, below the glutes, facing the rear of the body!

Here is a photo to better ‘see’ what I’m talking about:

On Day 2, I focussed on mainly the leg muscles facing the rear, hence my glutes and hammies. Yesterday, I worked on the leg muscles mostly facing the front, namely the quads. And also my calves because they get sore easily so I try to work it only on the last day of the gym schedule :D

Day 3 Workout Shoulders/Triceps

So I blogged yesterday that I thought I did not work myself hard enough? I’m totally wrong, and I am totally aching right now. Today’s gym day targeted my shoulders and triceps but I don’t think I pushed hard enough today because I am really exhausted from gyming 2 days in a row. Well, good thing is my break day is tomorrow!

Here is my workout routine for my shoulders/triceps.
