The “Love Your Legs” Workout

by

While you’ve certainly heard of “Skipping leg day,” it isn’t a phenomenon that only affects guys; quite a few ladies are prone to focus so strongly on specific areas that they leave their legs out of the equation entirely! To combat this for good, we asked Fabletics Master Whitney Findorff to walk us through the lower-half workout that will have you reaching for your skinny jeans in no time!
