20+ Legs Exercises to Add to Your Wedding Workout Plan - NOW!

Legs! Legs! LEGS!!! We have ‘em. We need ‘em tight. And we’re working ‘em together!
On Leg Day, pick 4-5 from the list below and let it burn!
Shoot for 60 mins (minimum 45) of straight leg pumping!

30 Mins - Your Choice Before or After
Elliptical or Bike w/ higher tension is best!
Cardio before will warm up your muscles, but if you’re feeling tired save the cardio for last and prioritize the workouts.

Make sure your shoulders are back, chest out, chin up & abs tight!
Never let your knees go over your toes when lunging and squatting...knees should always be @ a 90 degree angle.

Start with moderate to heavy weight - end with heavy | The more you lift, the less reps you will be able to do - this is fine!

When you add weight, you build muscle | Light or no weight burns out and tones (lean muscle).

If you ever want to add some umph: Perform 20 jumping squats in between each workout!
