This quick leg and ab workout is perfect to get slimmer legs and a toned tummy.

This Leg and Ab Workout targets the legs and lower abs. It also helps develop core strength while burning maximum calories.

It’s my go-to core workout because it also helps target the legs and thighs, too. I like training the legs and abs together because it helps get results faster.

The abs and legs are the two largest muscle groups in the body. 

Training them together burns more calories and when you train the legs and core together, you get results faster. 

I also like training the legs with abs because the legs are heavy and make a great counterweight.

Doing core exercises that utilize leg movements also allow you to target the lower abs more effectively, using leg weight to increase resistance.

This helps target lower belly pooch and helps flatten out the tummy area more.

WOO! That’s what most women want and why I designed this workout to do.

See me explain more and demo the workout in today’s episode of CCtv.
