5 Day Weight Training Plan : Legs (Tuesday)

February 17, 2015 2 min read

Alright!  Inquiring minds want to know.  For those of you interested in lifting heavier or who have asked me for lifting workouts for specific muscle groups, I decided to put together a week's worth of workouts to show you guys how I lift at the gym.  Keep in mind, I do not do the same routine every week.  I like to try new things, so the breakdowns I am sharing with you are all routines I have written and used as part of my training.  Also, I really like to mix it up, not only in the WAY I workout, but HOW I workout as well.  For example, I will lift heavy for a few weeks like this and then I will mix it up for a few weeks with longer full-body HIIT sessions.  I really enjoy lifting weights, interval training, yoga, and running, so for me it is important to have variety.  No matter what you do, make sure to continue the things that you love! Another note I would like to make is I really aim to keep my training sessions to an hour or less, slightly longer on occasion.  I have found that my energy levels often peak around the 30-45 minute mark.  Duration does not always equal more results, you can maximize your results in a short amount of time, so keep in mind that over-training can be counterproductive to your goals.  Listen to your body! Finally, I really want you to push it with the weights, at your level.  Don't be afraid of getting bulky - challenge yourself.  If you are just starting out, I strongly encourage you to take a few practice sets to know how much weight you can handle.  Don't start too heavy, but don't start too light either.  You want a weight that will push you to the end of the set - as many fitness professionals say, to failure.  Pay attention to your form - form over speed.  Safety is important - I have included some video links from Bodybuilding.com below, for demos. dayafter_leg day

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
