Workout of the Day (Legs)

Need a leg workout?  Want to have buns of steel?  Or how about killer legs?  Here is a quick leg burner for sure!  If you plan on using weights, I would use a weighted barbell for heavier weights or a weighted body bar if you’d like to use light weights, however body weight is always an option as all.  Remember, you don’t have to use weights for all the exercises, you can pick and choose what is best for you. Enjoy!

Warm up – 5 minute quick walk on the treadmill (3.5 pace – 4.0 pace)

10 box jumps
10 Squats
10 Alternating Lunges (10 per side)
10 Side Lunges (10 per side)
10 frog jumps

Complete 10 circuits with a 90 second rest in between each set.

Don’t forget to give yourself a good stretch when you are finished – you earned it!

About Food4Thought

I am no fitness expert. I am simply someone who has found joy in fitness and nutrition. I am a certified group fitness instructor. I’ve been teaching at the local health club for about 3 years now. While Zumba was my first love, I have since added Total Conditioning, Bodyworks plus Abs, and Core to my repertoire of classes. I work with a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals that I cannot obtain through group fitness alone. This year I ran my first 5K and plan to run my first 10K in March. To further my knowledge in the fitness realm, I have begun reading Strong Women Stay Slim, New Rules for Lifting Abs, and The Body Sculpting Bible for Women. On my list to read next is Wheat Belly. I am always looking for new ways to further my education and knowledge to better serve the members that take my group fitness classes. Lately, I have started tinkering with recipes, buying healthy cookbooks, and finding easy, tasty, and healthy foods to make. Like I mentioned earlier, I am by no means an expert, but the things I share with you have helped me tremendously with my fitness journey. It is my hope that with these easy tips and recipes, that you too can make these tiny steps and see big positive changes in your life.
