You made it through January, and you’re still strong on your workout goals! Welcome to a new series, Get Fit Friday. This series is meant to keep you motivated on your fitness goals, highlight great fitness videos, gear, trends, etc. and create a community around health and wellness. Disclaimer, I am not an expert in anything related to health or wellness, but feel free to follow me, an average girl, as I lead a healthier and more active lifestyle!
This week, I wanted to share my favorite way to workout – YouTube! I hate going to the gym, and would rather not splash out $30-50 a month on a membership, so working out at home is great. YouTube is a great option to find a variety of videos and focus on all different kinds of muscle areas. This week’s selection of videos will focus primarily on legs, and includes an intense inner-thigh workout that works muscles you didn’t even know existed!
Follow the videos in order for an excellent at-home leg & inner-thigh workout!
1 – Warmup – Blogilates Fat Burning Cardio Warmup
Because we’re going to get into some pretty intense leg workouts, this cardio warmup is a bit more fun and easy for a beginner. It’ll warm up your muscles and get in a bit of light stretching without needing too much power up front.
2 – Summer Slim Workout – Tone It Up & Livestrong Woman
I just have to start by saying, I LOVE Katrina and Karena. Their demeanor is so calming, and I loved participating in the Self Tone it Up Challenge throughout January. This video is a great start to work out the full body and focus on leg strength. It’ll get you sweating, and you’ll definitely feel a great leg workout.
3 – Intense Inner Thigh Challenge – Blogilates
This inner thigh workout is amazing! You’ll really feel the burn, and it works muscles that don’t always get a lot of attention. I love mixing up my routine with this video and trying out some new moves.
4 – Flexibility Leg Stretches – PsycheTruth
Ending out the workout with this video feels ah-maz-ing! I love stretching, especially my legs. This will help you cool down, and make sure that you don’t cause any injury to your muscles from the intense workout.
That’s it folks! I hope you had an amazing workout, and I would love to hear how your fitness journey is evolving throughout the year. Feel free to leave a comment with your progress, or let me know what types of fitness posts you would like to see this year!
