Have you ever been tempted to skip the leg day:)? I know you have!

It's ok though. You are only human after all. But admitting the mistake and willing to work hard to change it - that's a road to success. Your success:)!

Leg workout requires a lot of effort, no wonder a lot of people avoid it. Take the squat, for example. It burns more calories than any other exercise. Why? Simply because when you squat you engange every muscle of your lower body in addition to the core. Add some weight to your squat and you guarantee to make good gains!

So, despite of your goal (gain or lose weight), pick a kettle-bell or dumbbell that is safe for you and let's get started:

  • Hold a kettle-bell vertically next to your chest, with both hands grabbing it by it's handle.
  • Start inhaling and lowering your body as far as you can by pushing hips back and bending your knees.
  • Pause, then slowly push yourself back to the starting position, exhaling on the way.
  • Your elbows should be pointed down to the floor.
  • Keep your head up and chest open. Use mirror to get instant feedback.
