Labor Day Leg Workout & Lucy Activewear Giveaway

Yo Yo – Summer is sadly coming to an end, but I’m very much looking forward to the Labor Day Weekend.  My company gives us the Friday before Labor Day off too so I’ll enjoy a nice 4 day weekend – woop woop!  As usual, I want to encourage you to enjoy the holiday, relax and take some time off.  BUT don’t skip out on your workout!  Here’s a quick and effective leg workout that I did on Labor Day last year.  You guys liked it so much, I figured I’d pull it out and “beef it up” a bit.  This year I added a few more intensity intervals to elevate the heart rate.  Give it a whirl and let me know how it goes!

    Ooh, thanks for the new leg workout! That looks like fun.

    My favourite leg exercise is actually a really simple one. When I was doing physical therapy to recover from Lyme disease, my physical therapist had me lie on my back, and lift each leg one at a time and then circle them clockwise and counterclockwise; we eventually worked up to 3 reps of 30 circles and it felt good to actually be using my legs again after weeks of not being able to walk even a block without joint pain. And it felt good to have my *muscles* be the things aching and not my joints.

    I liked this leg workout! I’m already feeling it, so it’s definitely going to be saved for those rainy days when I don’t feel like running.

    My favorite leg exercise is vinyasa sun salute B. You start out in chair pose, a modified squat that works your upper and lower body, and then flow through lunges. I like to hold the pose for 10 breaths after the initial feeling of fatigue.

    Hi Brit!
    My favourite leg exercise would have to be walking lunges. I find it is a combination strength and cardio and really gets my heart rate up as well as toning the tushie.
    I will have to try your leg workout.

    Hey Brit!

    I love to run, but my favorite leg workouts are explosive ones like jump squats, burpees, jumping lunges, etc. I take a lot of pride in my legs (thunder thighs) and treat them very well with a mixture of various workouts (explosive circuits, running, and lifting – my single one rep max PR was 215lbs at one point!)

    Thanks for posting this workout. I will def use this week. My fave leg exercises are jump squats, box jumps and split squats because you feel them right away and they are super effective. With the right amount of reps and sets, I am definitely feeling them the day after 🙂

    Great workout! I would love to come to one of your classes sometime! I have been admiring your roof top Piyo classes. I am also a Piyo instructor, and I absolutely love it! My favorite leg exercise would be the Bulgarian split squat! It gets me every single time LOL. My quads and my glutes (bonus) are on fire, and I feel it the next couple of days. Have a great day 🙂

    I love doing barre exercises for legs. I use a tall stool (with a horizontal back) as my “barre” if I can’t get to class and it works great!

      I tried out Pure Barre a while back, but haven’t taken many barre classes since. I’ll have to try one out for a leg workout! Thanks for sharing! xo, Brit

    My favorite leg exercise is lunges but I really love to jog outside where you have hills that really work, define & strengthen your legs.
