A true sign of working hard – sore legs and glutes (bum). In todays video my beloved sister (and client), Dalila, demonstrates a merciless sequence of squats and lunges. I know that most people have a passion for hating lower body exercises, but might I attempt to deliver a change of heart by emphasizing that your leg muscles are your most metabolic – they burn the most calories and for a longer period of time after your workout. So try to become one with the burn, breathing through the discomfort… You’ll be happy you did:)
