Quote of the Day: "O Lord, that you would bless me indeed. Increase my land, keep your hand upon me and protect me from the evil one, so that I may not cause pain." --1 Chronicles 4:9-10 Workout of the Week: Legs in 10
You may not have heard it here first but you've certainly heard it here often: Training your legs regularly is one of the best things you can do to enhance your body composition. The quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes and calves represent a large portion of your body's musculature so, by working them hard you burn more calories. This, of course, on top of the more direct benefits such as increased strength, stamina and power production. This lower-body routine allows you to train for multiple goals at once, without equipment and in just a few minutes.
Warm-up: Jog in place for 1 min.
High-knee running Jumping jacks Squat jumps Split jump lunge Speed skaters Wall squat hold --Perform each exercise for one minute, taking no rest between exercises. Then, repeat the entire sequence once or twice more.
