Workout Wednesday

And…… I am back to grace you all with another KILLER workout! Over my fitness journey, which really blossomed this past year, I soon started to realize that cardio is not the answer. Much to my enjoyment, the way I started getting leaner and gaining more muscle was by weight training (hooray!).

My usual schedule includes 1 day of legs, 1 day of arms/abs, 1 day of HIIT and one day of an outdoorsy type of exercise, ie. jogging along the beach or adventuring on a daring (said with great enthusiasm) and photo worthy hike. Without further ado check out my go to leg workout that will have you FEELING THE BURN (for the next few days)!

15 minute warm up – (great for HIIT/resistance training) stair master -fat burner pre set level 10
