Burning Quads Cardio And Toning Leg Workout

This leg workout can be performed on any indoor or outdoor track, or similar location. It is recommended that you perform it no more than twice per week, maintaining 2-3 complete rest days between sessions.

You will be combining cardio in the form or sprints (or fast running) with bodyweight leg exercises.

Try not to rest between exercises. If you are new to sprinting it may be necessary to catch your breath for 15 to 30 seconds after running. This is ok. Just make sure to try to reduce this rest time by just a little bit the next time you perform this workout.

Knees to Elbows

This is performed walking style. Raise your left knee and touch it with your right elbow. Place your right foot down in front of you. Next raise your right knee and touch it with your left foot, ending up by placing your left foot in front of you.

Keep up this pattern of knee to elbow touching while walking forward.
