What exactly are “perfect legs and glutes?” If you asked a room full of women, you’d get all sorts of different preferences: small legs… thick legs… long legs… round glutes… small butt… and so on. While there may not be a universal definition, there’s really only one way to achieve YOUR perfect legs and glutes: Get to work maximizing your potential!
That’s exactly what IFBB Bikini Pro Tawna Eubanks has done. Focused on her areas of opportunity and unconcerned about how she measures up to others, her training motivation is simple. One of Tawna’s secrets for building her bikini body is regularly incorporating unilateral training. By isolating one limb at a time, she ensures the muscles of each leg get equal work and development. The result: leg and glute perfection!
If that isn’t reason enough to love unilateral training, it’s also a calorie scorcher. With little rest between legs, your heart rate stays high, your muscles are on fire and fat melts away. Sounds good, right? If you want to perfect your lower body and are ready to work, Tawna’s PERFECT LEG & GLUTES Program is exactly what you need.!
