[Modified] Lower Body Workout

Hi friends! Welcome to the day before Friday! Also known as Thursday-before-the-long-weekend. Can you tell I’m excited for a long weekend filled with turkey and pumpkin pie?!

Because I am.

[Modified] Lower Body Workout

I feel like I’ve been moaning about it for about a billion years, but my foot-related woes continue. I’ve been trying to still fit in some ab and arms workouts, but I have been avoiding most lower body workouts since they tend to put a bit too much pressure on my foot.

I have come up with a modified lower body workout to get around my frustration of not being able to do much of anything with my sore foot, try it out!!

[Modified] Lower Body Workout
Do this circuit 3 or 4 times, doing the exercises continuously without breaks in between. Do 25 repetitions each.
