Hi, this is Lisa with, here at Anytime Fitness, South Longview, Texas, and today I'm going to show you how to get a great leg workout. The key is to exhaust as many muscles of the lower body as we can. We're going to add some cardio in the mix to get the maximum fat burn. Please be sure that you're warming up about five to ten minutes before you do this to prevent injury. So, the very first one we're going to do is a triple hop, triple squat with a hop. So, we're going to go down three times and hop. Proper squat, you go down, your hips are behind you. So, that's what we're doing. One, two, three and hop. That's one, that's two. I want you to give me ten of those. You'll immediately go down into mountain climbers. Your knees are going to be at nice and high, your hands are right underneath your shoulders and I want you to do 20 of those on each side. So, this would be one, two, that's how you count those. You'll immediately go into calf raises. You can do this with weights or without weights. So, if I'm doing it without weights and I have both feet down, I'm going to come all the way up and down. You can choose to do this on one foot at a time, okay, definitely more hard; but, you can do this with weights or without, just depending on how intense you want it to be. I want your calves to worn out after 20 though. The next thing you're going to do is right into skaters. You're going to skate side to side. As soon as you get down there, come right back to the other side. Twenty of those. Then, you're going to go into a switch lunge. Go down into a lunge, switch. Hands on hips, it's a little bit easier. Hands up, little bit more difficult. You're going to do that whole series, by the way, I want ten of those, okay, on each leg, if you can do it. Rest one minute, repeat the whole series three more times. If you're a beginner, you may not come anywhere close to that, but you will get better. Do this about three times a week, and that is how you do a great leg workout.
