3/27 & 3/29: Cardio, Abs and Leg Workout

This post may contain affiliate links. You can read my disclosure policy here.

Today’s post consists of 2 days worth of workouts, cardio/abs and legs, because I forgot to post the workout I did on Saturday, so I’ve just combined the two workouts into one post.

I had scaled back on my leg workout this week. I’ve been doing deadlifts twice a week and it’s really helped to strengthen and build my hamstrings, but I still want to be able to fit into my pants! So I skipped deadlifts today and from now on I’ll be doing them only on leg day. I have also been doing them on back day and I don’t think they need to be done twice a week – at least in my case. Even though my leg workout today was very short, it was still intense enough to make my legs feel like Jell-O!
