Leg Workout With Free Weights

Within the last few day I have received a number of questions and requests for videos showing my workouts. I must admit that I have been thinking about that for some time already but I was rather hesitant to do it for a couple of reasons. First of all because I don’t think I’m professional enough and I’d be worried that maybe my technique is not perfect… And secondly – I honestly hate being filmed! As much as I feel OK with posing for photos, I don’t feel confident and comfortable enough to be in a video…

However, I don’t belong to those people who get stuck in their comfort zone for good. I like challenges! Besides showing you what I DO, apart from posting pictures of what I LOOK like seems much more reliable, and knowing that there are people who would like to see videos from me gave me a strong kick and motivated me to do it regardless of my aversion to being filmed.

So here’s a short footage of my yesterday’s workout. I made it short so it would fit within Instagram timeframe, that’s why the speed is faster than it was originally and the video app which I installed on my phone has made all those tweaks and added the music, so I’m not really responsible for that part hahahaha πŸ˜‰ I like it though. It gives you a hint of what I did and it proves that I actually DID it too (sadly there’s people who doubt that I workout cause they think I’ve always looked like that… ehhh… I won’t even comment on that…).


So my LEG WORKOUT for yesterday was as follows:

  • SQUATS with kettlebells (3 sets of 15 reps)
  • LUNGES with kettlebells (3 sets of 15 reps on each leg)
  • SIDE LUNGES with a dumbbell (3 sets of 15 reps on each side)

I had a short break in between each of those exercises. Then I put on my ankle weights and did:

  • SIDE LYING LEG RISES (15 reps)
  • SIDE LYING LEG CIRCLES (15 reps in each direction)
  • SIDE LYING LEG KICKS (20 reps)
  • GLUTE KICKBACKS (15 reps)
  • FIRE HYDRANT (15 reps)

Then change the side and do the same on the other leg, and then take a short break for a sip of water.

Repeat the whole set (for both legs) 3 times.


Let me know what you think and whether you’d like to see videos more often, please. Your feedback is much appreciated :*
