Here are a couple of great exercises I have been doing lately on my leg days. Try adding these compound moves to your usual leg/butt routine to majorly tone every inch of your body!
Grab onto a barbell in front of you, balancing on one leg. Lower one knee towards the ground with your foot facing upwards. When your knee is just hovering above the ground, launch yourself off the ground on the one foot, holding onto the barbell for stabilisation. As you head back towards the ground, go back into the same position with your knee hovering just above the ground.
So excited about the Fitness Blog I'm going to be starting for my online women's student magazine - Her Campus!
Here are some pictures I took yesterday for the article. I trained legs and butt with my friend Tina which was so much fun. We always motivate each other to lift heavier and inspire each other with new work out moves.
I also did plyo metric circuits in the morning which was great. Since coming back to Uni, I've been working out a lot, and it's really paying off as I've been getting so much stronger.
I have been doing boxing once a week with my Boxing society at Uni, and then circuits pretty much every day, using my Nike training app. I've also been training legs once or twice a week.
Here is a link to my first article for Her Campus! The article is all about toning your legs and butt in a circuit-style workout which really gets your heart rate going and focuses in on these specific muscles.
I also included some of my gym essentials at the end of the article!
I hope you enjoy it! :)
