Here we go!
Hello Monday and good morning!! It’s time to rise and shine to work legs TO THE EXTREME!
Last week I was wanting more intensity in my workouts, and today’s workout is going to DELIVER!
This workout is going to tone your legs and increase your heart rate which is going to FUEL fat burning potential. It’s going to increase your energy level and get your metabolism FIRED UP to keep those calories burning hot-hot-hot all day long!
You’re only going to need a skipping rope, and a little bit of room for this workout.
It’s time to get down and dirty on this wonderful first day of week #2!
+ skipping rope
DO x40 WALKING LUNGES
and then 100 SKIPS!
Complete these two exercises, back to back, WITHOUT REST until you complete 10 sets!
Which equals 1000 skips and 400 walking lunges!!
THE EXERCISES IN ACTION
If you don’t have a lot of room, you can do 20 walking lunges and then turn around and go back for the final 20. Or even do it this way, working with 10 at a time if there’s minimal room.
Once the workout is complete, spend at least 5 minutes stretching out the leg muscles. Try holding some of the following poses for 30 – 60 seconds each, working on each side of the body when applicable.
to stretch out the HAMSTRINGS, GLUTES & CALVES
to stretch out the HAMSTRINGS
to stretch the HIPS
Once you get into the low lunge position, touch your hip to make sure it’s pointing directly in front. You’d be surprised on how much the hips can twist without realizing it.
then pull the leg up (as far as you can and hold) to get deeper into the HIPS and add in some QUADS
You can also stand up, using your bent knee, pull your foot in towards your glute to get an even deeper stretch in the quad. It feels pretty good when standing too!
After today’s workout and cool down stretches, you’re going to be feeling mighty fine!
