Get Strong, Sexy Legs With This Workout
There are two secrets to looking toned and fierce in skinny jeans:
- Burning fat to slim down and tone your body.
- Working your butt and legs to get curves in all the right places.
By doing high intensity exercises between toning moves, you'll sculpt your legs while burning fat and toning your entire body. Try not to rest between exercises, and see if you can complete the entire circuit twice in around 20 minutes. Aim to do this workout twice a week and you'll be rocking those skinny jeans all winter long.
Remember: You can do it anywhere, so not even bad weather can keep you from looking your best.
