sexy legsHere’s a new Leg Workout I designed for my bikini boot campers last week – created for the gym. Give it a try!

Rest Time:
45 SECONDS max rest time between sets
2 minutes between exercises

Hack squats: 4 sets/15 reps each
suggested: start with 1-25lb plate on only one side.

Try to increase each set,  BUT it is more important to get 15 reps than go heavier and stop early

Single leg leg press: 4 sets/20 reps each
suggested: start with 1-25lb plate on only one side.

Try to increase each set,  BUT it is more important to get 20 reps than go heavier and stop early

Suggested: Start at 35lbs and go heavier by 5-10lbs every set.  Please maintain your reps

Leg Extension: 5 sets/ 15 reps

Lean Legs Women’s Workout: 4 Exercises, 30 Sets, 400 Reps

Lean Leg WorkoutIt is rare women want big bulky legs. Normally, they way long, lean and mean looking smoking hot thin, but fit legs. Here is a workout that is designed to develop tone lean legs. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.

Resistance: Adjust the weight for your strength. The weight I am listing below is the average weight of my clients did. Even if you can go heavier, the key to this workout is not weight, but repetition with little rest. If it isn’t challenging enough, you need to reduce rest time and/or increase resistance (and depth of squats).

Rest time: To help you gage rest time, my suggestion for little rest would be approximately 20-30 seconds. Moderate rest would be closer to 30-45 seconds. Regular rest (like standard weight training) would be approximately 60 seconds rest).

7 Sets of DEEP Squats
