2 Circuits for Shapely Legs

If you’re short on time like I sometimes am, it’s great to have a leg routine that will leave your legs burning and your workout done in a flash. I call this go-to routine my Tri-Set Lower Body Blast. It targets all the muscles of the hip and thigh — the glutes, hamstrings and quadriceps — with unilateral, bilateral, single joint and multi-joint exercises. Here’s a quick how-to video we shot at the studio to show you the moves. You’ll need just one heavy set of dumbbells  or a sculpting bar .
This routine includes two circuits of three different exercises. Complete each circuit three times before moving on to the next one. Incorporate this into your weekly rotation, and you will have strong, shapely legs in no time!
