Today’s workout is a quick 4-Minute Lower Body Burn. Although one round only takes 4-Minutes it is very challenging! This routine works your lower body in all planes of motion, and activates all of the muscles of your glutes, thighs and calves. Push yourself to get your maximum number of repetitions during the workout and you will also reap the cardiovascular benefits of this workout.
For today’s workout I am joined by Rose & Nicole. Prior to doing this workout, Nicole and I ran 5K (3.1 Miles), and Rose and I did a 2 mile run. You can add running to this workout, complete it on it’s own, or pair it with the cardio video below.
We had an amazing Fitness Week in San Francisco and this is the last workout we filmed together.
I love sharing fitness with my friends! Nicole hit her goal 5K time during our run, and Rose completed her first 5K run without stopping to walk. It felt amazing to help them achieve some of their fitness goals.
