Have you added weights to your strength training routine yet? Resistance training is the only way to increase lean muscle in your body. This, in return, boosts your metabolism, burns more fat, and contributes to that “toned and tightened” look that most of us are after. Today I am sharing one of my favorite leg routines that you can do with free weights. So grab your dumbbells/barbells/plate weights and let’s get to work!
Hold a plate (or dumbbell or even barbell) above your head while performing alternating walking lunges. Great for the quads and glutes as well as the core and shoulders!
Repeat three times and then move on.

Curtsy lunge – 10 each leg
Adds lateral movement and slight rotation to the lunge to kick on the hip abductors (outside of the hips). Try it either holding dumbbells or with a bar across your shoulders.
Repeat 3 times and then you’re done!!
