Firstly, this is not a picture of me.  Just wanted to find a really awesome muscular woman’s legs picture to use to inspire us all!  When you see pictures like this, you wonder: how can any woman be afraid of getting muscles in her legs?  It’s really beautiful! Ain’t no cellulite on those thighs!

So, on my endeavor to get legs like these, I did this workout this past Monday night in the gym.  I know it is Thursday now and you’re wondering what took me so long to share it.  Well, sometimes takes me a couple days to post things lately because I have become rather busy with the business of Hollywood  (I hope you will forgive me).  Sounds exciting, but it’s much like a really good glute workout—it’s a pain in the butt, with benefits to come.  Speaking of Hollywood, this workout took place at the 24 Hour Fitness at the famous Dome Theater on Sunset Blvd.  Again, sounds glamorous, but it’s not really.  Just a lot of hard work.

Here it is (for the calf exercises S mean toes pointed straight, I means toes pointed in and O means toes pointed out, and combination means a set of each):

  • Inner thigh machine: 10 reps/95 lbs X 3
  • Outer thigh machine: 10 reps/125 lbs X 3
  • Seated calf raise: 12 reps/100 lbs SOI, 10 reps/90 lbs SOI
  • Seated ham curl: 12 reps/120 lbs X 3
  • Leg extension: 12 reps/190 lbs X 3
  • Calf press machine: 10 reps/130 lbs S, 8 reps/130 lbs OI, 10 reps/115 lbs SOI, 10 reps/100 lbs OI
  • Leg press: 10 reps/250 lbs X 3
  • Elliptical cardio machine: 15 minutes/ level 14/ramp 14/ 130 calories

And here’s what I ate (also, every day I drink about a gallon of water, I have it next to me all day):

  • Breakfast (24 g protein): Strawberry muffin from recipe on last post (20 g protein) with large mug of green rooibos tea with 1/2 cup soy milk (4 g protein)
  • Snack: handful of jungle peanuts (15 g protein)
  • Lunch(30 g protein): Vegan Grilled Chik’n Salad at Veggie Grill
  • Snack: 2 cups of soy milk (14 g protein)
  • Dinner (25 g protein): 1/2 Hera’s Pie Pizza from Pace Restaurant (wheat crust with sliced potatoes, basil pesto, green beans, tomatoes and mushrooms on top).
  • After Workout: (31 g protein): smoothie with banana, strawberries, 1 oz wheat grass (1 g protein) 1.5 cups soy milk (10 g protein) and 1 scoop Vega Sport Performance Protein (20 g protein)
  • Before Bed: large mug of chamomile and lavender tea with 1/2 cup soy milk (4 g protein)
  • Total 143g protein for the day
