                              • Has anyone heard of the HughesFIT Blast Training? A friend of mine found this book, I wanted a change so I did one of the leg workouts. I can honestly say I have not had a workout like this in a long time. What a great changeup.

                                Barbell Squats: Increasing weight with each set: 135-20, 145-15, 155-12, 165-10, 175-10, 185-10, 195-10
                                Dumbbell Lunges: Done 15 reps each leg for a total of 3 sets: 30-15, 20-15, 20-15
                                Leg Extensions: Increasing weight each set, hold each rep and squeeze at top: 15, 12, 12
                                Laying down Leg Curls: Increasing weight each set, work the negative: 15,12,12
                                Leg Press: Use moderate weight, take as many sets as possible to complete 75 total reps: 32, 30, 16

                                I added:
                                Standing Calf raises - 2 sets
                                Sitting calf raises - 2 sets
                                6 sets Crunches (4 Machines, 2 Rope Pull Down)
                                4 sets of pull-ups (2 shoulder width, wide, close)

                                I can't sit down at my desk at work....legs shaking
