Lower body workouts might be by far my fave. Probably because (let’s be honest), they’re the easiest for me. Well, relatively! My arms and core have just never been as strong as my legs!
However, since this workout series is a trio, the work must be done! You guys. These workouts are so much better with friends. SO MUCH BETTER. Personally, I force the hubs to come with me. He
lays in the grass and shouts random encouragements LOVES it!
Here’s how this bleacher workout plan works! Do this and the other two workouts (Upper-Body Bleacher Workout and Core Bleacher Workout) 3 times a week total (so do each one once in the week), then add cardio and a rest day on the days off. Here’s an example:
Monday – Upper-Body Bleacher Workout
Tuesday – At-Home Cardio Workout
Wednesday – Core Bleacher Workout
Thursday – Running
Friday – Lower-Body Bleacher Workout
Saturday – At-Home Cardio Workout
Sunday – Rest
I’m thinking we need to have a bleacher workout transformation challenge soon! What do you think? Stay tuned: more to come on this! 🙂 And don’t forget to add this FREE 5-Day Nutrition Plan to your healthy living plan for the optimal results!
