In an effort to build a strong running foundation, I have implemented the following custom routine. This should provide me with the leg strength required to conquer pesky hills or guarantee that I’ll never be able to wear skinny jeans. Please note that a 60-90 second break was taken between sets and the entire workout lasts about 50 minutes. Now let’s get sweaty!!

Barbell Squat
4 stets of 14, 12, 10, 8 reps with 180lbs

Barbell Deadlift
4 sets of 14, 12, 10, 8 reps with 180lbs

Barbell Lunge
4 sets of 10 reps with 60lbs

Leg Extensions
4 sets of 14, 12, 10, 8 reps with 80lbs

Seated Leg Curls
4 sets of 14, 12, 10, 8 reps with 80lbs

Standing Barbell Calf Raise
5 sets of 16 with 220lbs

Seated Calf Raise

Well that’s it for today so take a shower because you are stinky and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
