Last night, we had a double header at volleyball. Double headers make everything more fun because you get more of what you love, but I sure was sore when I woke up this morning. Part of the soreness is definitely from all the playing. However, I also did a quick, kick butt leg workout before volleyball. Obviously, volleyball players are often in a squatting position while playing. This workout will target those same muscles and leave you with a good burn. Give it a try!
My next endeavor for my workouts is to increase my speed. I have never been a very fast person (I like to blame it on my height, but that doesn't always work!) and I want to improve on this. Speed and quickness are very important when playing sports, which is something I love to do! What are your favorite speed workouts?
