Fun Week of workouts with my sister

 

This week my sister is here and we are so excited to work out together! She normally gives me new ideas of exercises to do, and how to use the machines in new ways to target different muscle groups. Yesterday we did a short arm workout, pretty similar to how I normally do my arm days, and then finished off with 20 minutes of intervals on the treadmill. This morning we did a leg day and she brought some new stuff that I’ve been dying to try! I always feel so silly using the machines “the wrong way” haha, like it would be so awkward if someone told me that’s not how you’re supposed to do. Anyway, this was our leg workout:

Inspiration for your leg workouts:
  • Kneeling squats in the smith machine: 4×12
  • Deadlifts with dumbbells: 4×12
  • Leg press laying on your back in the smith machine: 4×12
  • Sidesteps with elastic band: 4×20 on each leg
  • Hamstring curl machine: 4×10

I found the first one a bit tricky to get a good contact with the muscles, but I think it was because I had too much weight on. In general when you’re trying a new exercise or machine it’s good to start with a lower weight to find the right technique and muscle. The other “new” exercise for me was the leg press in the smith machine laying on your back. It was easier to master, and I had a great burn in my hamstrings afterwards!

Do you have any favorite exercise where you use a machine “the wrong way”?
