LEGS FOR DAYS:

Okay, so this is probably one of my favorite leg workouts that i have gotten from pinterest. it is a quick and simple workout that can be done at any point during the day. I usually do this in between each of my classes, before and after work, or when I wake up and before I go to sleep.

Legs for days

TREADMILL INTERVALS:

Any treadmill lovers out there, well look no further. This is another one of my pinterest favorites, which was taken from Prevention Magazine. What I like best about this is that I normally get really bored on the treadmill because it is the same thing over and over and over again. You are looking at the same wall with nothing changing. This workout goes into interval training and allows you to remain motivated when on a treadmill.

THIGH TONER:

If you have not been to BackonPoint’s blog yet than go check it out! This is has everything you need for a workout which is why I give you the Thigh Toner. If you go through this workout 2 times through and 3-5 times a week I know you will feel the burn and after a few week will see results.

Good luck to you all as you make your way to lean legs for summer. Make sure you do at least one of these workouts for those summer legs you can show off in a bikini or some mini shorts. Have any good leg workouts? Let me know!

3 kick-butt workout DVD

This post is all thanks to my friends. They are the type of people who need somebody or something “yelling” at them to keep working and not to quit. Every video I am going to give to you I have tried know people who have used them. From this I give you:

My top 3 favorite video workouts:

P90X DVDs

1.

The first is the extremely popular, P90X. Trainer Tony Horton has created 12 weeks of fitness videos that will help you get from flab to fab in just 90 days. Each disc goes through a different workout for that part of the body. The discs also come with a workout calendar and nutrition plan. The beauty of P90X is that each disc works an entirely different muscle than the last. I have yet to try every disc, but from the ones I’ve done my favorites are: Ab Ripper X; Plyometrics; Core Synergistics; Legs & Back; and Chest, Shoulders and Triceps. Tony Horton has three to four other people workout with him doing different intensities of the workout, allowing all skill levels an excelent workout. For more information check out P90X

2. Moore Trainer Resistance Bands

The Moore Trainer is a video combined with 4 resistance bands that you attach right above your knee. Each resistance band is a different weight that strengthen any workout. Trainer Shay along with 3 others go through an intense 20 minute workout that will increase your stamina and strength. I bought this product at the begining of the semester (January), and use it 3-5 times a week and I can already see and feel my legs getting stronger. The resistance bands that the video comes with are the main part of the program. These bands are portable and can be worn anytime of the day, and during any workout to add a little bit extra weight onto your legs. This program is excelent for those who are trying to gain stamina and loose inches on your waist and thighs.  For more information check out: Moore Trainer’s website here!

The Jillian Michaels workout DVDs give you the feeling that Jillian Michaels is actually in the room yelling at you like she does to the contestants on the biggest loser.  She has 10 DVD programs that are great workouts that will help you stay motivated and get ready for that summer hot summer bod you always wanted. One of my good friends has three of these DVDs and is obsessed with them. On the days she cannot do them she can hear Jillian Michaels’ voice, in her head, telling her to do them.
