Building the foundation with Legs

I’ve been MIA for a while. Exams on top of exams lead me to a handful of all nighters these past two weeks. Today I wanted to signify the importance of working out the lower body.

Much like a house, your body can only handle a given weight without a proper foundation. Common sense will make clear that with stronger legs, your body will support muscle growth, which in turn will allow you to lift more weight. Besides, who doesn’t enjoy seeing some nicely toned legs?

My cousin came across the Superman Program from Muscle and Fitness Magazine. It’s a stellar workout. No muscle goes unchecked. Each muscle group is worked twice a week in four days time. We’ve gotten through week one and I’m feeling and seeing the results as we both progress through it.

Below I’ve listed some popular leg exercises, that you can easily reap benefit from.

As a beginners workout you can perform each of these at
3 sets; 12-15 reps

Squat
Leg Press
Leg Extension
Reverse Extension
Calf Raises

New Years and Getting Started.

CCP_7703-EditHello there! My name is Ryan. I’m an active college student and model with high ambitions. I love coffee a little too much, and I’m known to be an outgoing introvert. I enjoy reading classic literature, and I’m a movie buff. I have decided to start this blog after receiving many requests to explain my fitness regimen.

With the turn of each year, I have failed to make any New Year’s resolutions for myself. I have not made New Year’s resolutions a habit in my life for whatever reason. This blog is for those seeking to chase your fitness goals. Here, you will find that much needed motivation! Alas, where do we find motivation? How do we keep it? Consistency.

Consistency is critical for your gains and achievements in and out of the gym. Eating right, it’s that over used saying that every doctor, mom, gym rat, and health nut will say. The integrity of this statement is unquestionable. Knowing how foods affect your body is your next step to reaching those goals.

Throughout this blog I will be posting my nutritional diet [It’s what I eat on a daily basis 🙂 ]. I will be posting my workout routines, cardio workouts, and various tips you can use every day.

Here’s to you and a successful New Year,

-Ryan
