Look at those Legs!

Happy Sunday everyone!   We have had a pretty lazy weekend- sleeping in and relaxing for the most part.  We did meet up with some friends in Santa Monica last night for some dinner and drinks, which was nice to get out of the house a little bit!

Today I wanted to share one of my favorite quick leg workouts.  All you need is a stopwatch, some water, and your running shoes, so here it goes….)


Quick Form Tips:

High Knees- Jogging in place, lifting knees up towards chest

Squats- Begin with feet hip width apart, aim bottom back as if you are sitting in a chair, keep knees in line with 2nd toe on top of ankles

Lunge Jumps- Stand with feet hip width apart, hands at your sides. Lunge forward with your left foot and lower yourself until your right knee almost touches the floor. Again, keep knee on top of ankle and in line with 2nd toe.  Explosively jump straight up and scissor your legs midair, landing with your right leg forward.  Repeat

Squat Jumps- Refer to stationary squats for positioning.  Jump as high as you can using your legs to push you up.  Absorb the landing softly and as you land squat down another 2-3 inches. Repeat.

I leave you with my celeb leg inspiration, Carrie Underwood.
