Leg Workout for Runners

This post is sponsored by LARABAR 
Before I got pregnant I had been training for a 10k.  And since getting knocked up, I have continued that training.  It’s at the end of next month and I can’t wait!  Although I’ve stepped up my running to 3 days a week, I still focus on weightlifting and bodyweight exercises at home as well.  I have to keep those muscles confused and guessing!  I have to be honest though, my favorite workout of the week is Leg Day.  So I’ve shared one of my workouts with you!  The workout I’ve shared above is bodyweight-only and can be done anywhere. 
If you’ve never done one of my workouts before,  let me break down the numbers on the printout above.  The first number after each exercise is the number of circuits, the second number is reps.  To do this workout properly, do each exercise once with the allotted number of reps, then do the cirucit all over again 2 more times.  That’s a total of 3 circuits.  And you will be hurting the next day.  Make sure to stretch before hand and foam roll after.  And have one heck of a post-workout snack!  My snack of choice? LARABARs of course!  My favorite for after this particular leg day is Apple Pie with a big glass of chocolate milk.  Nutritious, healthy, and above all delicious.  And the best part is knowing I’m feeding both my body and my baby the all-natural best!
At LARABAR®, we believe that the foundation of a sound mind, body and
spirit is derived from what you eat – and what you eat is most delicious
and satisfying when it’s in a whole, natural state.

  1. I've also been keeping up with my running and training since getting pregnant. Baby will be running its first half marathon with me in just 3.5 weeks!

  2. Are frog jumps like squat jumps and are the squat holds squatting and holding without assistance? Will give this to my boot camp class tomorrow.

  3. Looks like a good circuit! I assume from the number of reps that this is a bodyweight circuit? I haven't been strength training much recently in the middle of my triathlon and cycling competition season. Can't wait to hit it hard again in the fall.

  4. Nothing like chocolate milk after a great workout. Nothing else settles my stomach and fulfills the chocoholic in me. I love it so much I'm even part of Team Refuel!

  5. I'm really impressed that you are able to keep running while pregnant. When I was pregnant, I barely had enough energy to walk, much less run!!

  6. So awesome that you've kept up with your training while pregnant. This looks like an awesome leg workout, too!

  7. This is perfect for me! I'm actually training for a marathon right now (40 week training program so lets not think im super cooler than I am right now), but this will be perfect for me to do on cross training days, or on my easy short run days!


  8. Great circuit! My legs are tired just reading it!

  9. Looks like a great workout! I love doing timed workouts to switch things up from the regular set and rep schemes. Props to you for keeping up with your training while being pregnant! 🙂
