Reshape your lower body with this weight and band workout

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! It’s a total leg burnout! Is there anything better than feeling sore after a leg workout??? I think not! To me it says: JOB WELL DONE!

Get ‘er done full body workout

Resistance training is such an important part of any exercise routine because it is the one thing that allows you to build lean muscle. Why do we like lean muscle, you ask. Well, for me its two fold; one-muscle is metabolically active so your metabolism gets a boost and helps you burn fat (yippee!) and two-muscles help keep you strong for all your daily functional activities. It’s like we say, HEALTHY LIFE, HAPPY LIFE! Total body workouts are always a winner for me because I am hitting all my major muscle groups in one workout. You throw in strength/resistance training with some cardio and abs and you have hit the trifecta!
