How to Sculpt Sexy Legs and a Tight Tush

How to Sculpt Sexy Legs and a Tight Tush
Doing lower body training is tough but highly worth every bit of energy used to blast through a tough lower body workout. To get lean legs and behind takes motivation, dedication and determination to achieve the results you desire. 

Who wants to jiggle in their swimsuit as they walk along the beach or pool, I sure don’t! For starters, plan on training Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to get your legs and glutes in shape faster, you can alternate lower body training days each new week as well if you'd like.  Working legs take a lot of energy to push through a good, hard workout, the energy used is that of your brown fat.

Doing so burns more calories during and after you train.

Little do they know that eating a high carbohydrate breakfast with little to no fat or protein actually is not a healthy breakfast—it’s a simple carb loaded breakfast, which spikes insulin and causes weight gain. They're correct that each food group is healthy, but coupled together without protein isn't as healthy as they may think.

Typically at social gatherings, there are plenty of high-calorie foods and desserts to tempt and tantalize your taste buds. Often self-discipline seems to go out the window the moment you step through the door.
