If you've been following my blog for a while you'll know that I had knee surgery last year. It's been such a struggle for me! I've been a runner my entire life. It's one of my many passions. I did track and field in high school and it's been so hard not being able to run. I went through some pretty intense physical therapy, 8 hours per day, and finally got 100% of my flexibility back. But I lost all of my muscle in my right leg. It's significantly skinnier then my left leg and it's not very attractive!
The hubs and I are cruising the Caribbean in May and I refuse to have a funny looking leg! So I started hitting the gym hard and lifting a crazy amount of weights.. It's finally paying off! My leg is stronger than it's ever been and it looks and feels amazing! Now if only I could get a tan :)
I've still got a long ways to go though.. I still can't sprint but I can jog! Which is a big accomplishment since I could barely even walk!
Anyways my meat head husband came up with a fitness plan to focus on my knee and quads. The man's a genius!! It really works!
Work out part 1.
I hit the gym!
I do three sets of each machine to target my knee and legs. each day I do 5-10 more per set.
I also do cardio. Spin and lots of jogging!!
Work out part 2.
I do these in the comfort of my own home.
Fire hydrants. I call this the dog peeing one haha
I think these are called leg lifts?
I do a minimum of 150 each per day.
It's not the most intense workout but it's getting the job done! My legs and abs are looking good :)
Bikini body here I come!
