Keep your legs in top form this winter

Lovely Leg Workout - Keep your legs in top form this winter
Your legs may be covered up with pants and boots this upcoming winter, but that does not mean you should neglect them. Training hard all winter will keep your legs in top form for when you start peeling off the layers in the spring.

Legs are a larger muscle group, so training them once a week is sufficient. This allows your legs adequate rest so the muscle fibers can recover. Try this challenging leg workout that is sure to challenge your stems.
