What an effective workout...if I do say so myself! Cindy and I just did this workout with our ladies and I think they would all agree that it targets our challenge areas; buttocks and inner thighs! I am have been walking around like I just got off a horse for days now-tee hee! If you want to work and tone your glutes and thighs, then this is the workout for you! The combination of superset strength exercises, burst of HIIT cardio and the Pilates finisher will definately help you achieve the strong, toned legs you desire. Grab a workout buddy and have some fun with this!
