Leg Matrix

Posted: September 20, 2010 in Exercise of the Week

Originally created by Alwyn Cosgrove, The Leg Matrix is a finisher of the following exercises back to back with no rest:

  • 24 squats
  • 24 alternating lunges (12 each leg)
  • 24 lunge jumps (12 each leg)
  • 24 jump squats

What is a finisher?  It’s what you do to “finish” your workout.  It’s your way of saying goodbye to the gym.  Obviously, if you’re recently new to working out (within 6 months), you shouldn’t do a full finisher.  Like everything in life, you need to regress from the full leg matrix and work your way up to doing a full one.
