Are you ready for today’s workout? This routine is focused on sculpting the Lower Body. I incorporated cardio bursts throughout the workout for an added fat burn. You will work the lower body muscles from every angle, to maximize the burn and muscle recruitment during each exercise. This is a standing workout, so you don’t have to get on the floor for the exercises.
One round of this routine will take 20-Minutes. Push yourself to get in as many reps as possible with good form. Never sacrifice form for speed. It’s important to have both. Remember, push yourself, modify as needed, and if you need a break get back into it as quickly as you can. As long as you are challenging yourself you are getting in a great workout. One of the biggest benefits of HIIT is that everyone can work to their own level. As you get stronger you will find that you can get in more and more reps during each interval, or make it through the whole workout without stopping.
Give yourself credit for your accomplishments. Fitness isn’t measured on the scale. Fitness improvements happen when you show up consistently for your workouts.
You do not make progress in one day, and you don’t lose progress in one day. Results happen when you keep showing up. Consistency, combined with healthy amounts of rest, will help you improve your health and fitness.
As you know I have been battling the flu. Yesterday was the first day that I actually started to feel better. Unfortunately, now my son is sick. I have been up most of the night with him, because the congestion keeps him from breathing well. Having a sick baby is heart breaking. I would rather take on that illness for another week (or longer if needed) than let him suffer through it. I am praying that he heals quickly.
I hope that you enjoy today’s workout! Let me know what you think of the workout! See you soon!
