Legs + Booty Workout!
Hi friends. How are you?? I've been so excited to bring you these new workouts as they've really been delivering incredible results over the last year. This legs and booty workout is great to build strong, lean legs. The combination of movements not only challenges your strength, but also gets your heart pumping (ummm holla for sneaking cardio into any workout)!
Always incorporate a 5-10 minute warm-up before starting these workouts. It really makes a difference when you dive into a workout with warm muscles. It prevents injury and maximizes your results 🙂 It can be as simple as a walk on the treadmill, some jumping jacks and high knees, there are endless options. More videos to come to help you with warm up ideas!
