Elvis Legs!

My best buddy Ryan can no longer walk, when he does his legs move of their own accord, they kind of look like Elvis’s legs when he’s dancing! We’ve just completed a brutal leg workout, so brutal in fact it’s taken me the best part of 60 minutes to walk home (it usually takes me 20!). I was anticipating a fall down the spiralling staircase as we left the gym but thankfully it didn’t happen.

Not long after the workout, amongst the sweat, and mental daze a thought popped into my mind…. I was seriously contemplating having a sleep on the comfy sofa’s, I was absolutely cream-crackered! Just the thought of the long, arduous walk home was enough to make me consider making Virgin Active my home for the next 24hrs!

Well I finally made it back to my computer, and I’ve just thrown back a post workout protein shake. As far as Ryan is concerned I don’t know if he made it back, he’s got it much worse than me, he lives at the top of a hill (can we all just take a moment to pray for Ryan!) – lets hope he makes it home!

Anyhow, the sun is shining, life is good and I thought it would be super cool to share the workout we did, why not try it yourself? or with a friend? (if you have an enemy or want to laugh at your friends expense, this is the one!). If your unsure of any of the exercises i’ve also added a link to the video demonstration (click on blue links throughout post if needed).
