Move of the Week: Cheerleader Leg Blast

The Stir Bloggers

It's nearing that time again, back to school! When I think of back to school, I think of football games and pep rallies. Though I was never a cheerleader, I really like this cheerleader exercise.

Cindy Whitmarsh, ExerciseTV trainer and mom of two, uses this move to get her cheerleaders fit to wear those short little skirts! And she uses this for herself right before hitting the beach or shooting a workout video. Good to know, I'm going to the beach this weekend!

Directions: Lunge forward, side (alternating sides), and back, then squat. Easy enough, right?

How does this move benefit your body?
This exercise is one of the best exercises to sculpt, shape, and whip your lower body into shape!

How many reps/sets should you do and how many times a week should you do it?
I would recommend performing this exercise 3 sets of 20 to 30 reps every other day!

Which muscles does this exercise move work?
This exercise works your glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, calves, hips, and the major problem area: the saddle bags!

What is the difficulty level for this move?
This move is a moderate to advanced exercise. You must keep your knees directly over your ankles, not over your toes, to keep proper form and activate the proper muscles!

How long does it take to see results?                                                                                      If you have proper nutrition and repeat the exercise every other day, you could see results in just a few weeks!

Ready? Okay!! Be aggressive! Be, be aggressive (told you I was never a cheerleader)!!

Were you a cheerleader? Do you think you'll try this move to get your legs in "cheerleader" shape?
