Lower Body Workout
Finally made it to the gym today! My hubby stayed home with the kiddos this morning so that I could go kill my lower body at the gym ;) I stretched for at least 20 minutes when I got home afterwards, but I'm already feeling it. I think I need to spend a little quality time with the foam roller before bed tonight. It's the best kind of pain though. I love being reminded that I pushed myself hard and got a great workout in.
If you can't make it to a gym you can still do this workout at home. The Smith Machine lunges with a knee lift can be done without the smith machine. The same goes for the squats. Calf raises can be done on the edge of a step. You can lay on your side on the floor and do leg lifts instead of using the adductor and abductor machines. Do regular sit ups instead of incline sit up. Everything else can be done at home without being modified. If you don't have weights at home you can increase the reps to make it more challenging :)
If you aren't sure about any of the exercises just Google them!
