We all know that I'm in lazyville off-season so I've had no set workout plans. It's actually nice to wake up, decide to blow off the gym, and promptly fall back asleep but this can't last! I knew that I needed to get back to the gym so last Monday I decided to man up and do the Eighth Week of Fitmas challenge Donloree had posted. 

The challenge was a squatting challenge where you could select from the different workout options that were listed or possibly create your own. I decided to try this challenge because I need to work on my hammies & glutes during the off-season and this seemed like the perfect way to kick that off. 

I decided to go with a combo of Workout Option #1 & Option #2 and it looked like this:

Lying leg curl
50 x 6
65 x 6
80 x 6

Hack squat
90 x 12    4 sets

Leg press
180 x 20   4 sets

Bulgarian split squat
20 x 15 per leg   3 sets

Deadlifts *(neither option listed this but I decided to throw it in there)
95 x 12
115 x 10
135 x 10
155 x 8

I ended the workout with 10 minutes on the Arc Trainer followed by 5 minutes of stretching. 

I knew that I was going to be sore the next couple of days but I had NO idea how sore!!!! I told Donloree that there was a point on Wednesday while I was at work that I admitted defeat, stopped taking the stairs, and just used the elevator :)

Head over to Bikini or Bust for past Fitmas challenges - they're a nice way to add flavor to your workouts & DOMS to your life!
