The legs workout are back....

Oh.. I have started working on my lower core while at the gym this evening. Well, after running the half-marathon as well as those long distance trainings, I realised my leg muscles especially the thighs and calf easily tired and ached after 10km-13km. Thus, I guess it's time I add in back the workout of my legs' muscles which I did three sets with 4 reps each for the thighs, calf and upper back leg muscles which includes the butt. hahaha... Well, the leg press is good for the butt and my upper back leg muscles. 

I didn't really workout my legs all along as I hurt my knee many years ago. And, in addition, I disliked working on my legs as years ago, when I workout with my personal instructor back then on my lower core, I usually ended up walking like a crab or Sadako from the Ring... hahaha.. The legs muscles are so tight and painful that I can't even walk properly.

I had a lamb chop to reward myself after the workout which also included 2 sets of shoulder and a 5KM run on the treadmill. It was good. I also did chest, biceps, triceps, abs and back workout last Monday with a 5KM run too on the treadmill as well as another 5KM run on Tuesday at the east coast park. It was a full body workout and it's really good while the Lamb chop was awesome and delicious! 



Looking forward to the Raya long weekend and spend time with my family, but before that, I have to brave the crowded causeway this evening after work. Wishing all my Muslim readers here a happy EID Mubarak! Stay safe on the roads! :)

    1. SK - Yeap, even big bodybuilders who can look intimidating tends to ignore the legs if you noticed. They have small legs.

  8. When you start running on the road, look straight and not at the sexy aunties waving. You might end up langgar the lamp post. Your body must have been sadly neglected for years, so be patient and watch how Jordan Chan built his body!!
    Happy holidays!
