The Best Exercises For Sexier, Leaner Legs

It’s safe to say that most women have similar goals they want to reach when their work out journey starts, sexier legs, flat stomach, perkier boobs, and arms without the Batman wings. Seems like a simple and reachable goal, right?

Wrong. Every woman who works out knows the pain of hitting a plateau. You work on your tummy, and it feels like nothing is changing. Your boobs, well you’ve pretty much given up. Your arms, well they're not so bad, they’ve gotten better. And finally, you’re working out your legs, you don’t feel the burn the next day, and you wonder if it was even worth it? 

Are you sick and tired of doing the same old squats? Are you ready to give up hope on lunges? We know, we get exactly what you’re feeling.

On your next leg day, give these exercises a shot. You’ll want to do leg day every day!
