After walking on the treadmill for 20 minutes, I immediately got started on the workout. I didn’t do any extra glute activation or hip mobility because I was in a time crunch.
With that being said, I think this was the quickest leg workout I’ve done. I had minimal rest, especially between sets, about 15-30 seconds. One problem I had was with the staggered stance db deadlifts. Add these to the list of movements I hate. I feel like I can never get the correct form, no matter how many times I make adjustments. I probably should’ve just switched to single leg deadlifts, as those would’ve been easier, but now I know for next time.
I also didn’t like the banded hip thrusts with abductions. I have a love-hate relationship with this movement. There are times when they feel good, but then there are times where it doesn’t feel like I’m doing them right, especially with my right leg. Maybe it’s because I’m doing them on a couch, or maybe I’m just not doing them right. I may start incorporating them whenever I do mobility work, in hopes I’ll get better with them.
Other than those two things, the workout was really good. I think keeping the rest times short made it more fun.
