In case you missed every single post I have ever written or are new here, let me say this: leg day is my favorite. Seriously, there is nothing more accomplishing than lifting some heavy ass weight and being strong af in the gym. I constantly try to challenge myself and create more effective workouts. Last night, I did this leg/glute workout and holy hell, it was intense – hence it’s name, “The Slaughterhouse.” If you are really looking to up your leg & glute day give this workout a shot. You’ll be all types of Jell-O by the end of it. (I am also listing the weight I used here so you can have an idea on how much of a challenge it should be for you). As I have said before, I am not a personal trainer or certified nutritionist. I am just a girl sharing my journey in the hope of inspiring others!
