Warrior Cut-Day 5
What is leg day?
Leg days during this 6 week workout plan focuse on exercises that will strengthen your lower body.
Often women spend a lot of time focused on toning and shaping their legs and forget that the rest of the body is just as important.
That’s why, in this 6 week workout plan you will do legs in conjunction with other body parts as well.
Can I workout legs everyday?
It’s important to give each muscle group at least a days rest before training them again.
If you keep training the same muscle group back to back, you’re not giving them time to recover from the stress placed upon them and they could feel fatigued and become over trained.
Overtraining can lead to injury and lack of progress or results.
Make sure to give your muscle groups time to rebuild.
Why is it important to train abs?
Abs are our stabilizer muscles and are very important to train. A strong core helps us with good posture, supports our lower back and helps reduce lower back pain.
Training abs provides us with the stability we need to do compound exercises and is our powerhouse when it comes to better endurance, speed, and balance.
Please consult your physician before starting this 6 week workout plan
Be sure to warm up for at least 5-10 minutes with dynamic stretching to help prevent injury and get your body prepared for the work and stress you are going to put it through.
A cool down is equally as important.
You need to take a least 5 minutes (or more) and bring your heart rate down, don’t just stop.
Spend time static stretching to help with recovery, flexibility, mobility and reduce the possibility of injury.
