Leg day: Yes you need to do this

Leg day gets a bad wrap among gym bros, but everyone should be working out their legs to balance their physique. This quick workout will hit all the major components of your legs to give you a complete aesthetic. 

Bonus: Leg day has helped shape and lift my booty! My favorite lift, and one I do 3 times a week, is the kettle bell squat. Make sure to focus on squeezing your bum at the low and high points of this lift. Soon you will be singing with JLo and Iggy…”Big big booty, got that big big bootayyyy..”
