Sculpt and Tone Lower Body Strength Circuits
Sculpt strong, toned legs and thighs with these circuits. The mix of single leg (unilateral) and both legs (bilateral) exercises help with stability, balance and strength. Infusing cardio and core exercises throughout the circuits gives you a very well rounded lower body workout routine.
Go through the exercises in each circuit 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3...
2-3 times through each circuit
Rest as needed.
Be sure you do both legs each round on the one sided strength exercises.
