The goal this off season has been to condition my lower body. This is to achieve deeper conditioning on stage. As such my leg training is not heavy at all.. Tonight's workout: Giant set 20x stiff leg deadlift a 40x dumbbell walking lunges 20x good mornings 40x dummbell walking lunges Repeat 4 times.. Then a superset of leg extensions and leg curls. Also repeated 4 times Remember you can't condition what's not there. So have the muscle base first before attempting this workout… #exercise #work #lift #getfit The Lean Hourglass Life 💓💓💓 #fit #fitness #curves #hourglass #picoftheday#transformation#cardio#fitgirl#instafashion#Goals #sexy#commitment#dedication#fitnessmodel#girlswholift#girlswithmuscle#glutes#booty#fitfam#legs#muscles#motivation#inspiration

This is the leg workout to end all leg workouts. Now that takes stamina.

That bar weighs 200 pounds, people. APPLAUSE.

This move gets extra points for creativity.

Nailed it. Look at all those plates!

Does anything seem more beast mode than flipping a tire?

Bestie workouts, best workouts.

When you are pushed down by what seems heavy, push through it and stand up straight. Today it is heavy, but tomorrow it will be lighter. You are doing today what others won't, so tomorrow you will do what others can't! Last set of #Overheadsquat 5×3 50kg (2x faster) Last set of #pinfrontsquat 3×2 80kg I could not get the 2nd rep, I had to walk for 20 sec and come back and get it (at real time) #FBGG #StayStrong #nothingcantstopme ••• Cuando las circunstancias te empujan hacia abajo y todo parece estar pesado y complicado, no pares, sigue la pelea, y levántate. Lo que hoy es pesado en tu vida, mañana será liviano. Mañana estarás haciendo lo que muchos no! #Fitheart #fearless #weightlifting #olympiclifting #fitlatina #girlswholift #strongwomen #barbellbabes #fituk #onlygoodvibes #strongmind #fitnessmotivation #fridaynight #chickswholift #reebokone #perfectnever #traintoinspire #nevergiveup
