Here is your Wednesday Workout Exercise: 

Single – Leg Squats

Grab a 5 to 8 pound weight for this exercise or fill up a water bottle. Hold the weight between both hands, arms extended forward at the shoulder height; stand with feet hip-width apart. Raise your right leg directly in front of your right hip, keeping leg straight. Bend your left knee as deeply as you can, then straighten it agian. Do all reps {12} on one side, then switch sides and repeat {3x}.
This exercise works your legs & butt!!!

3 SETS OF 12 REPS EACH SIDE

Its time to get those legs back into shape for Spring!!!

 

REMEMBER TO
Eat a post-exercise snack
 

Ideally, you should have used most of your stored glycogen to finish your workout. You now have a window between 15 minutes and one hour after exercise when your body is at its peak to absorb nutrients (up to four times better than at any other time). You want to eat a small snack during this period that is four parts carbohydrates to one part protein. The high carb content is because your body wants to replenish its glycogen stores as quickly as possible. This will speed up your recovery and make you less sore. A little protein kick starts muscle resynthesis as well. Keep this meal very light, under 300 calories, and it should allow you to recover and keep you from getting hungry until you eat a proper meal, two to three hours later.
