Lovely Lady Legs: Jen Jewell's Leg-Sculpting Workout
The winter affords us no reprieve from showing our legs. And why should it? Leggings, skinny jeans, holiday-party dresses, and beach-vacation bikinis are all part of a cold-weather wardrobe.
Instead of bucking the trends and hiding in sweatpants, use the winter months to whip your lower body into shape. With sculpted legs and buns, you'll not only rock a pair of leggings, but you'll be ready for flirty hemlines when the spring comes back around.
My favorite way to sculpt my lower body is by coupling weighted exercises with bursts of cardio. The weights help build muscle and the cardio bursts add some calorie-burning intensity. Add this workout to your regimen and show off your sculpted glutes, quads, and hams!
Leg-Shaping Sweat Session
Perform the first superset four times with a 30-second rest between each set. Repeat this pattern for each superset.
Plie Dumbbell Squat (Performed with barbell)15 reps
Leg Press (One leg)12-15 reps per leg
You can change the exercises. Choose some of your favorite lower-body movements and alternate them with cardio exercises. I do, however, always include some sort of deadlift. Sumo deadlifts are my fave!

Thanks everyone! Would love to hear feedback after you've tried the workout- I LOVE adding in these cardio bursts, they've really made such a difference for me in terms of overall results! Work it! : )
I hve always said that jump rope is one of the most underrated mid-set exercises! I tried this on a female client who said she wanted ripped legs. We've done it twice in the last two weeks and its her fav. workout! Well done!
I did this workout today, it was awesome! The jump roping sucked but in a good way! I took 60 second breaks and pretty much did 100% throughout the whole workout. I'll definitely feel it tomorrow!
This nearly killed me. Funny how after upper body workouts I put "bitches!" at the end of every thought/sentence and after lower body workouts I can't say anything but "holy mutha ----!" LOL...I got a lot of lower body work to do.
Thanks for the feedback! Haha, love the brutal honesty- and yes, this workout is a doozy, all of the cardio bursts really make you 'work it work it' even more than usual! Fun and effective- keep me posted on your progress! Happy training! :)
A HUGE thank you to everyone for the feedback! Please keep me posted on your progress and results! I've received a ton of emails specifically about this workout, too- even though it's titled 'Lovely Lady Legs' it's definitely something that the guys can add to their regimen as well!
