Lower-Body Workout for Stronger Legs

2015-07-13 | By: Snap Fitness

Strong legs, lifted glutes, and tight abs. Who wants them?


Not only will tight and toned muscles make you look and feel better in a swimsuit, they will also help you achieve a strong core. Having a healthy and strong lower body plays an important role in our overall health and wellness.


When it comes to having great glutes you must also have great hamstrings. Your hamstring muscles tie in to your gluteus muscles. Working your hamstrings with certain movements helps to activate your glute muscles, which lifts and tones your backside.


This specific workout can be done twice a week if you’re lifting heavy weights and three times each week for those who are using lighter weights.
