Thick, Strong Superwoman Legs!! LIFT!

August 20, 2013 2 min read

Almost a year ago now, a good friend and gym partner of mine convinced me that I should start squatting with heavy weight. I figured I had nothing to lose so I started spending at least one day a week at the squat rack in my gym. The results? I started having people ASK me if I "lift". I thought that was pretty cool. So, what did I do to get these legs? Here is a typical "leg day" of mine. I like to switch it up once in a while so that my body doesn't get used to the same routine. STRETCH!!! Stretch those hammies, quads and glutes. Your basic squat form will be feet shoulder width apart (or a tiny bit wider) and toes slightly pointed out. You'll want to keep your head and chest up and ass sticking out. Try to avoid letting your knees pass over your toes. Have someone spot you if you're going for heavy weight! Get into your squat rack. I warm up with the barbell (45 lbs). Now the key to building a great butt is to get as LOW as you can. "Ass to grass" as heavy as its comfortable for you. Don't think about what the person next to you is squatting. Everyone is different. Add weight each set so you can work up to a goal weight. I like to get in 10 sets of 10 reps for squats. I add ten pounds each set until I hit my max weight. At this point, if you notice you're not going as low, that's okay. As long as you're going as low as you comfortably can (without sacrificing your form). Once I've done my squats I like to finish my workout with 5 sets of deadlifts. I gradually add weight each set until my max. If you feel like your legs are going to give out on the way to the car, it was probably a great workout.   legs3 legs2

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.
