Workout of the Week: Jump Around

Juicy thighs? Strong quads? Ripped calves?

Uh, yes, yes, and yes!

Today’s workout of the week is all about toning those legs like a BOSS—with jump exercises!

Now, you might say, “I’m not a marathon runner or a basketball player. I don’t need strong legs!”

Hmm, well what about when you chase your kids in the backyard? What about those steps you have to climb to get to the second floor of your work building?

What about walking, something we do anything everyday?!?

You use your legs more than you probably think you do.

So let’s turn those walking sticks into walking muscle. Start out with these jump exercises…you’ll feel like walking all day, every day!
