I LIFT 20 minute leg workout purely training #64

i lift 20 minute leg workout purelytwins

Where did the weekend go? We missed having 3-day weekend. Even though we work for ourselves it is still nice to have a 3-day weekend. Speaking of days off we have a family vacation coming up that we are super excited about. Although we are sad to miss Blend this year as we had a blast last year getting to hang out with our dear blogging friends.

Even though the weekend went by fast we managed to squeeze in a lot of work. When we head out of town we try to get ahead on  projects that deal with our blog and online personal training business. Any other bloggers out there try to prep ahead when you know you are going out of town?

Today’s purely training workout has nothing to do with traveling or leaving town. What it does focus on is LEGS! And lifting heavy! We’ve been incorporating heavier weights in our home workouts for a few years now and love it. We don’t always lift heavy but when we do we really enjoy it. We hope you like this lower body weight workout.

We suggest for different fitness levels:

B-fits (beginner peeps) – Set Gymboss Interval Timer to 10 rounds of 10 and 50. Take breaks when needed. Try to challenge yourself and pick a heavier weight than you are used to. Omit the jumping in the lateral jumps.

A-fits (advanced peeps) – Lift heavy. Limit your breaks.

FIT moms (pregnancy recommendations) – Do the modifications mentioned in the video.  Follow along with Lori. Do not lift too heavy. Pick a moderate to light weight, especially if you are new to working out.

Go warm-up and come workout with us.

*disclaimer: make sure to consult with your doctor before trying anything new with your workout routine.

    Thank you!!! Lately my HIITs have been no more than 15 mins and I’ve been thinking of adding more time, so this is perfect

    Rocked out this workout this morning and can honestly say it was fun but intense. My legs were burning in the lateral jumps and the sweat was just flowing. Thank goodness for cold showers or I would still be a hot mess!

    Thanks for the workout ladies – travel safe :)

    Looking great ladies! The kettle ball swing looks fun. Plus the donkey kick into squat is really working my leg muscles. Thanks for this. Will look forward to the next.
