It’s workout time! Yesterday we did a workout combo: Full Body Sweat & Core Galore Workout. Today we are focusing on the Lower Body. Very often people want to “spot treat” their workouts. Throughout the week, it’s important to do workouts that will exercise your entire body to maximize your results, and balance your muscles.
I create my workouts to strengthen my body in all planes of movement. I want to have functional strength that will keep me healthy, strong & fit. Spot treating will not give you the best overall results, and will slow down your progress toward your goals. This is the reason why I favor a lot of compound movements (multi-joint/multi-body exercises). You can maximize your results (and burn more calories) when you work your entire body.
I hope you enjoy today’s workout! I will be doing it this evening when I get home from workout and pairing it with a 30-Minute Run. I did this workout for Reps, but you can do it Interval style if you prefer. Set your timer for 10 Rounds of 10/50. To increase the intensity you can time the workout for 10 Rounds of 40/50, and do cardio of choice (jump rope, high knees, burpees), to amp up the intensity.
Have fun with today’s workout!
