Ball State football hosts the most hyped leg day on earth. It’s not just about lifting anywhere from 400 to 600 lbs, it’s about making it enjoyable. This has made me so hyped up for squats I just did a double leg kick through the wall.
@Eddy_Barstarzz runs through his workout using nothing but the bars in the park to throw his own bodyweight around. Life isn’t worth living unless you’re getting shredded!
Leg day is by far the most important of all the gym days. Your legs are your foundation. Your entire body is built on top of them. If you plan on strengthening your upper body, it only makes sense to also strengthen the part of your body that’s responsible for holding up your upper body, right? And besides, if you stay committed to leg day, you may end up being able to do some pretty amazing things, like crushing watermelons with your thighs.
This is the “Deliverance” of road races. The Franklin Half-Marathon took place in Tennessee and some banjo-playing rednecks decided to park next to the side of the road and cause a little trouble. As the people passed by, the men who call themselves the “Bailey Road Pickers” spewed a bunch of cliched hillbilly phrases like “you got a pretty mouth” and played the well-known banjo riff from the 1972 thriller that made you never want to go into the woods ever again.
Five years ago, a vicious knife attack ended Kieran Quinlan’s boxing career, and almost ended his life. The 17 year old teen boxing champion thought he was dead after being stabbed in the heart and lungs. He had to give up his sport, but used gym training to re-build his physique and set himself new goals. Now, Kieran is also an ambassador for the Knife Awareness Project, touring schools to talk to young people about his experience.
Most fitness gurus will tell you a plank is one of the best core exercises you can do, but anyone who has done a plank can tell you just how excruciating it really is. Generally, plank workouts entail two to three minutes in various plank positions. However, if you’re looking to break the Guinness World Record for planking, you’ll have to last a little longer than that.
This little dude has gone damn springs in his legs. I’m pretty sure he watched that Shia Labeouf video from yesterday and just decided his height meant nothing!
