I love leg day. When you’re training such a large muscle group, you get some cardio work done too. If your legs start to feel tight mid-workout, take a moment to shake them out and stretch for a couple of seconds. After your workout, make sure you get some protein in your system to maximize your muscle repairs and gains!
