Certified instructor description:
Leg muscles are out to work in all of your daily activities from the moment you get out of bed until the time you go to sleep at night. When you strengthen your leg muscles, you can positively impact your independence and wellness by leaps and bounds. You will improve bone density and increase muscle mass as you increase the frequency of these exercises, the weight you lift and the number of repetitions you do. Increased strength and endurance in your legs help you live your daily life with more energy and confidence.
Leg workouts help improve your mobility and balance—and protect you from falls that can cause serious injuries and consequences. This workout is designed to build strength in the legs and overall body core. It has seated and standing routines. Both versions will give you a good workout and allow for many opportunities to progress.
