December Workout: Lower Body Kettlebell Strength
By Zach Spencer, ClubSport Oregon Personal Trainer
There’s a few reasons people suggest you don’t skip leg day (including to avoid becoming a meme). From a simple walk to intense cardio sessions and endurance events, most of us rely on our legs for various everyday tasks and more demanding physical activities. To make sure your lower body is primed for any challenge, try this month’s workout. Simple but extremely effective, it’s designed to strengthen your legs so you can propel yourself farther, increase leg endurance so you can go longer, and injury-proof your body so you can avoid setbacks. Additionally, because many lower body exercises can be done as calorie-torching compound exercises, you can expect to create lean muscle mass in your legs, chest, back, and arms. Add it to your routine today!
