There is nothing I love more than a good lower body workout!  This is a killer lower body super set workout that will give you such a sense of accomplishment!   What is a super set, you may ask? The most basic definition is: when you do two exercises back to back with little to no rest between them.  Most often the two exercises work different muscle groups.  What are the benefits of the super set?  Well, for starters, they are great when you are short on time as they allow you to work different muscles one right after the other without much rest.  Another benefit is hypertrophy or muscle growth.  By using your rest to do more exercises you are creating active recovery for each exercise.  This triggers the physiological processes that promote muscle growth.  This type of strength training  is critical for toning and strengthening your lower body.  Do not reach for the pink dumbbells with this one.  To really change your body and become both stronger and leaner you need to challenge your weight selection. Step outside your comfort zone:)  Utilize proper form and you will be thrilled with the results of this killer lower body super set workout!
