Jello Legs…Why Leg Day is so Important to your Fitness Routine

The only way to describe some leg workouts are jello. You know the feeling…complete muscle exhaustion…even walking becomes a chore.

Leg day is one of the most important lifting days in your routine. When performing multi-joint exercises, you burn more calories than the average exercise only involving a couple joint motions. Some of the largest muscles on the body are in the legs, therefore, the more muscle you have in your legs, the more calories you are going burn throughout the day (the more fat you will burn). Also, due to the large muscles, the hormonal response to working legs is greater and will help build muscle all over your body.

Here is the workout that you will love to hate. 😉
