Banana Poppyseed Pancakes

Good Morning!

It’s already Wednesday which means it halfway to the weekend! Woo Hoo :)

Let’s dive right into breakfast this morning cause it’s a good one:

I topped mine with a few frozen strawberries.

The addition of the banana made them extra moist and fluffy!

I was a fan definitely making them again soon! :)

WORKOUT

Backtracking to last night’s workout- We hit legs again:

Straight Leg Deadlifts

Walking Lunges with Barbell

Seated Leg Curls

Leg Press Superset with Calf Raises

Hip Adductors

Calf Raises

My favorite exercise was the Walking Lunges

We did 4 sets up and down the basketball court & my legs were on fire that last set!

Walking Lunges are a staple in my leg workout routine.  They are a compound workout, which means they work more than one muscle group at the same time.

When doing walking lunges focus on pushing through your heel on the way up.

Also, make sure the front knee isn’t father forward than the front toe as this can put extra stress on the knees.  The front shin should be perpendicular to the ground.

Walking Lunges work your Quads, Hamstrings and Glutes at the same time :)

Do you incorporate walking lunges into your workout routine?

If so, do you prefer standing or walking lunges?
