Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to Week 2 of my 6-Week Workout Challenge! Today is a Lower Body Workout Day.

I have a brand new workout for you today! It wasn’t posted earlier, but it is up now. There are two workout videos below. The first video is the new workout, but I also posted an alternate video for anyone who worked out earlier this morning, before the new video went live. I left that one up below, because it’s a great low impact workout.

We had a family fun day yesterday, and I was not online, so I got behind on the posting. I will get that video up for you ASAP, but in the meantime I have an alternate Lower Body Workout video posted below. I know a lot of people workout in the AM and I didn’t want to leave anyone without a workout.

Have fun, and enjoy the new workout! This one should be paired with 30-Minutes of Cardio. I actually did a 30-Minute Run and a 30-Minute Walk. Jesse was running for an hour today, so I figured I might as well use the time to finish up my cardio.
