30 Day Challenge: Day 21: Low Impact Lower Body Workout

Hi Everyone!

This is Day 21 of the 30 Day Workout Challenge. This is a low impact lower body workout. Don't let the lack of plyometrics fool you this is still a challenging workout. :)

One round takes 15 minutes, and it can be repeated up to 4 times. Remember, the lower body houses some of the largest muscles in your body. Strengthening these muscles gives you power, and increases your metabolic rate. More muscle=higher calorie burn during exercise and at rest. Also muscle is what gives your body shape. Increasing muscle to your glutes and hamstrings is one of the best methods of decreasing cellulite and dimpling. 

Enjoy the workout!
