Lean Leg Workout

Gotta lift some weight, ladies, if you wanna lose the jiggle! We underestimate our leg strength. Lets face it...if your legs carry YOU around all day, every day; you CAN squat more than 50 pounds on the Smith Machine!! So put on your big girl panties and LIFT SOME REAL WEIGHT!!

I've mentioned how I typically split my leg workouts between two days (Hamstrings on one day and Glutes & Quads on another). Lately I've been doing hamstrings one day and plyo the next. Well, I have had to modify my workouts this week due to scheduling but I got it in!
