If you watched the Miss USA contest earlier this year, you might have noticed the shapely legs on many of the contestants, indicating the importance of strength training to sculpt lean muscle on your thighs, glutes and calves.
Lean muscle improves the overall appearance of your lower half and also helps to diminish the appearance of cellulite. It also changes the shape of your silhouette, lifting and firming your glutes, which is a must when you are rocking that bikini by the pool or wearing your favorite skinny jeans!
You don't have to be Miss USA to try my leg workout below. This routine is designed for anyone that wants to sculpt their own pair of pageant perfect pins! You can do this up to 3 times per week on non consecutive days. Add weight as you get stronger or to increase the intensity. The best thing about this workout is that it can be done at home in your living room while you watch TV! All you need is a skipping rope and bit of space to complete the exercises listed AFTER THE JUMP!
