Summer is just getting into full-swing, so what better way to get yourself bikini ready, than to start a serious lower body transformation program? For all you ladies out there, getting a set of toned, tight legs, really isn’t that difficult. All it takes is some dedication and a well-designed exercise program to take you from flab to fab. The following program is designed to build lean muscle in your calves, quads, hamstrings, and glutes. By using elements of an athletic training routine, we are able to significantly blast the muscle fibers in a way that traditional strength training cannot.
Think about it…athletes have pretty nice bodies, right? It’s not coincidence. It’s the fact that these types of people use explosive plyometric training combined with strength training to failure. Studies have shown that combining plyometric training with strength training is the best and fastest way to realize muscle gains.
Follow this program for 8 weeks and you are guaranteed to notice a serious change in your lower half.
Alternate between the following two workouts in each group as often as you’d like; just remember to leave 2 full days between training sessions.
