30 Day Challenge: Day 4: Legs and Glutes

Hi Everyone! 

Welcome to Day 4 of the 30 Day Challenge! Today's workout is all about the lower body. I did this workout for reps and one round took me about 30 minutes. I followed it up with a 2 mile walk on the treadmill. 

In this workout I use dumbbells, but I also demonstrate body weight variations for each exercise. If you're ready to increase the challenge try adding some weight. Always choose a weight that you can use while maintaining good form. 

If you don't have weights it's okay! You can still get in a great workout! 

I hope you enjoy Day 4! Don't forget to check in! The daily check-ins are a great way to stay motivated and accountable for your workout. You can check in on FacebookInstagram or Twitter. All you have to do is comment, like the post, or tag in in a picture of you (or your weights, etc) once you have completed the workout!

Have fun!
