The winter affords us no reprieve from showing our legs. And why should it? Leggings, skinny jeans, holiday-party dresses, and beach-vacation bikinis are all part of a cold-weather wardrobe.
Instead of bucking the trends and hiding in sweatpants, use the winter months to whip your lower body into shape. With sculpted legs and buns, you'll not only rock a pair of leggings, but you'll be ready for flirty hemlines when the spring comes back around.
My favorite way to sculpt my lower body is by coupling weighted exercises with bursts of cardio. The weights help build muscle and the cardio bursts add some calorie-burning intensity. Add this workout to your regimen and show off your sculpted glutes, quads, and hams!
Leg-Shaping Sweat Session
Perform the first superset four times with a 30-second rest between each set. Repeat this pattern for each superset.
Leg Press (One leg)12-15 reps per leg
You can change the exercises. Choose some of your favorite lower-body movements and alternate them with cardio exercises. I do, however, always include some sort of deadlift. Sumo deadlifts are my fave!
