Reshape your lower body with this weight and band workout

www.cardiocoffeeandkale.com

Resistance training is a must to shape and tone your lower body. Using both weights and resistance bands gives you a very effective workout to challenge your thighs and glutes. By supersetting the thigh and glute exercises you are able to efficiently work through this workout while really challenging yourself. I love it! Warning…if you choose the right weights, you WILL be sore! Is there anything better than feeling sore after a leg workout??? I think not! To me it says: JOB WELL DONE!

Directions:

  • Superset the strength sets 2-3 times through with an ABABAB format following the suggested reps.  Rest as needed.

  • Do a quick blast with jump rope before moving on to next set.
