Leg Training on the Treadmill

I love training legs!

Love, love, love them!

The reason why I love legs so much is they make-up more than 65% of our total body muscle mass. This is important because the more lean muscle you have on your body the more calories you will burn.

Strong legs = strong metabolism.

Jump squats, lunge jumps, and running intervals are some of my personal favourite exercises for the gams.

Here’s an interval workout I did yesterday! Give it a go!

*Be careful! Hover yourself slowly down onto the treadmill. It will take some time to get comfortable going really fast but you can do it!
