Lower Body 6 - She's Got Legs! (Plus My Puppy)

She's got leeegs! She knows how to use them! Oh yes, this will give you some seriously toned legs and glutes in record time. Add some ankle weights, a circle resistance band and maybe even a dumbbell for an even greater challenge, and you'll be screaming by the end of this. This is FANTASTIC for every level, from stark beginner to athlete. If you have knee issues, talk to your doctor about this workout as this may be just what the doctor ordered to help strengthen your knees! Plus, you get to see She-Ra the Boston Terrier, who definitely helps me out here ;)

Beginners, do this once, intermediates do this twice, advanced/athletes do this 3-4 times, adding ankle weights, a band around your knees and a dumbbell on hips during glute bridges.
