Day 11: Week 6- Work them Legs!

On Monday, Sylvie and I worked on Lower Body. Marc was not able to be there, which means he will enter into Hell on Wednesday. That's the price you pay buddy ;)

I started Sylvie on the stationary bike, where so worked the "cardio" program for about 20 min, increasing and decreasing the resistance with no notice. We then moved onto some lower body exercises. I ran Sylvie through a similar lower body program, I do during my "strength training" class at Elite Fitness, in St. Pete. I had Sylvie lay on her back and do 3 sets of 30 reps of leg raises with a 3 count up and 3 count down, working her hamstring, quads, and hip flexor. I then had her lie next to her stepper and perform 3 sets of 30 reps of inside leg raises, working her inner thigh. Sylvie then completed 3 sets of 30 reps, of kick backs. She placed her forearms on the stepper and brought one knee into the chest and kicked it back, working her glutes. We ended with the ab 20 reps of ab crunches on the fitness ball. One rep consisted of crunching to the middle, left side, middle, and right side.

Sylvie did a hell of a job. She told me when she drives home, it's either she can't steer or work the gas and brake in her car, depending upon what muscle group we worked that day. I said, "First off, Man-up and would you rather be in shape in get in an accident?" We all know what the answer was....
