Lunges and Squats are the fundamental exercises for great looking legs. Features two, 30-minute workouts on one tape.
The Secret to Beautiful Legs and Buns
A total lower body strength training workout that concentrates on slimming your hips, shaping your leg muscles, and ridding yourself of unwanted fat
Lunges and Squats are the fundamental exercises for great-looking legs in this Body Sculpting™ workout video entitled LEG ENHANCEMENT™.
This popular workout video features two, 30-minute leg, hip, buttocks, and calf routines designed to tone and define all the muscles of the lower body. Each of the two workouts starts out with a pre-stretch warm-up followed by a full 12-minute ballet stretch to amply prepare you for the workout. By properly stretching your lower body, you will reduce the risk of injuring yourself or pulling your muscles.
You only have to do one of the two 30-minute workouts on the tape and you're done! Then, it is recommended you wait at least 48-hours between workouts so your muscles are fully recovered for the second workout on the tape.
Even though you may feel you didn't even work out, please don't do the second workout until waiting a full 48-hours! Strength training is different and you won't feel the effects of the workout until the next day or maybe even the day after. You will be sore (and in all the places you've always wanted).
NEVER exercise the previously worked out body part the next day or until your soreness has passed! Resting between workouts will allow your body to repair itself and prevent unnecessary stress on your joints, tendons, and ligaments.
The video requires just a set of 3 to 5-pound dumbbells (or heavier weights or barbell if you wish). If you have never worked out with weights before, you will do the first workout with no weights. This alone will get you pretty sore for a few days. After the first full week, you can then begin to add weights.
If you have more than 20-pounds to lose, after the first initial no-weights workout week, use a set of 3-pound (each) dumbbells. After a full month of training, you should graduate to using a set of 5-pound (each) dumbbells.
If you have no weight to lose, after the first initial no-weights workout week, use a set of 5-pound (each) dumbbells.
If you are an advanced exerciser, and you are very familiar with Squats, Lunges, Deadlifts, and Goodmornings, perform this workout with the weight you are used to doing other strength training videos with.
Both workouts on this tape may be done cardiovascularly, meaning the heart will work at the 65-85% target training zone, if you move between sets, march in place, and/or minimize the resting time between sets. This accomplishes two feats: you'll get a cardiovascular workout for your heart and an excellent shaping workout for your lower body.
Or, you can choose to make Leg Enhancement™ an anaerobic workout by resting longer between sets or putting your VCR on pause. This will be especially useful if you plan on using a set of 20-pound dumbbells or heavier barbell.
Coupled with a low fat diet, results are immediate if all directions are followed! You will soon see the fat disappear on the back of your legs. Your hips will become slimmer. Your thighs will slim down and your muscles will be more defined. The best thing about strengthening your legs is that you'll have more energy! Walking up a flight of steps will seem effortless! The trick is to stay with it and firmly believe you are getting one step closer to your goal every time you do your Leg Enhancement™ workouts.
