Today I am linking up with Chelsea, Kait and Rebecca to share my favourite leg / lower body workout.
I told you here that I split my workouts into upper, lower + abs. So this is my 'lower body' workout, so it works out.. well. you get it.
I personally think you don't need a bunch of fancy workouts for the legs + booty. I have tried pretty much everything for the lower body, because that's the part of my body I struggle the most with.
And this is what I do: Squats. Lunges. Deadlifts.
Squats are my favourite of all the exercises in the world. I feel so strong! I do 3 sets of 12 with 40-50 lbs depending on how weak I am feeling.
Learn how to do a proper deadlift here.
Seriously, you can really hurt yourself if you go all willy nilly about it.
There are a million other leg / butt exercises, including ones that focus on smaller muscles, and they might work for you but I personally don't love them. When I actually do this workout, my legs are amazing. When I am lazy, not so much. But if you like the other exercises, you go on with your bad self.

And for the obvious - I am not a professional and you should always consult a doctor, personal trainer, someone smarter than me before you do anything, and you cannot blame me if something goes wrong or you hurt yourself. Feel free to blame me if you are the good happy sore the next day though :)
