The Summer Boot Camp series continues with workout number two—a leg workout that is going to test your strength, balance, speed and power. Maintaining strong legs is not only good for keeping mobility in the hips, knees, and ankles, but strong legs take you places! From everyday activities such as walking up and down stairs, to enjoying your favorite recreational activities like outdoor biking or running a race, a great pair of strong and toned legs will keep you active for life.

This workout follows a sequence of three exercises performed for 30 seconds each, two times in a row, followed by two minutes of cardio. You’ll need a timer, a park bench or steps, and approximately 40 yards of open space to move. After a brief warm-up of light walking or jogging, get ready to blast every muscle in your lower body with a combination of strength, plyometrics and cardio exercises that will get those legs and glutes strong and defined.
