5 Tricks to Make Leg day Fun
5. Combining low-intensity, steady state (long, slow runs for example) and HIIT
on off days will help your conditioning and your ability to get through more and longer sets. By further pushing yourself on off days, you gain more from recovery times where less oxygen and blood are flowing, though it is critically needed for speedy recoveries. (A common theme on this list is "do more").
4. Pacing yourself a bit better on the high volume sets will help as well.
3. Take up Running
Running will not only increase your endurance which helps make those last reps easier, but it also loosens up, and strengthens your legs while allowing more blood and oxygen to circulate during lighter days.
2. Consistently working the same exercises
allows you to challenge and break your PR, and track your progress. You can set yourself up to maintain or increase, depending on what cycle you are in, or what your fitness goals are. Consistency is one of the main things athletes and beginners are constantly working on, and doing the same workout and adjusting the number of reps and sets to your needs is one way to balance consistency and variation. If you are just starting off, creating a weekly routine is one of the best ways to get in the habit of working out regularly.
1. Make leg day into leg days
Simple enough, increase the time spent on strengthening your legs, and like magic, your legs become stronger, thus able to handle harder workouts. Yea this isn't a real tip, however it's important to push the limits of your workouts if you want to see results, and that means increasing the number of days you work out muscle groups you are targeting.
