Today is Halloween and do you know what is spookiest workout possible? Leg Day! Today we are going to do a 45 – Minute HIIT Leg Workout. This is going to be an intense workout that is going to really challenge you.
To start it off, we are going to do an intense cardio routine to get the blood flowing and get the heart rate up. This is going to set the tempo of our workout.
Next we get into our first circuit. Instead of time, we are going to go with a rep count of 12. Crank through these 4 exercises for 4 rounds as fast as possible. Take a 30 second break after each round.
Back to the cardio we go! Hop on the stair master for a total of 10 minutes, increasing the intensity throughout, then ending it with a cool down for the last minute.
The last circuit is going to be abs. The key to having a strong lower body is also having a strong core. We will do 4 rounds of 4 exercises. After each round you should feel a deep burn in your abs. Take a 30 second rest after each round.
Incorporating legs into your weekly workout routine is a very important aspect. To understand more benefits of leg day, go here.
To end it all, stretch out your legs and abs for about 10 – 15 minutes. This will help with the soreness later.
