I’m dreaming of summer and my fav squat

workout

wednesday- 3 miles on TM + leg day

Yesterday J and I took it easy and just played at home since Josh was working from home. It was so relaxing to just play around the house. I told J I was going to go down stairs to workout and before I knew it he was already down there blaring music. He said he was going to do his exercises too.

I don’t know about you, but I’m always dreaming of summer. I know winter has basically just begun, but what better time to prep for those sunny days by the pool? I decided to do a killer leg workout to prep for swimsuit season. I did traditional squats, walking lunges, frog jumps, star jumps, and then my fav squat I learned from  Jillian Michael’s video( I did 3 sets of 10 of each exercise).

I think it’s called the reverse squat, but the starting position is a lowered squat, as shown.

Then you lift up to a 90* angle, then back down, repeat until you can’t move;)

After me and J’s workout we played, harassed Josh while he worked, and made silly faces.

That night, Josh and I headed to the temple for date night. Tights are a girls best friend in the winter, they keep me sooo warm.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

  1. Favorite leg exercise…probably plyometric squats…or squats with a bar with some weights…and then some lunges!
