Calorie Burner!

You get  a lot of “bang for your buck” from this exercise.    You will work the leg muscles, bottom, abdominals and arms in this one exercise.  These movements will help increase your heart rate allowing you to burn off some of those weekend calories.  This week I want you to focus of the muscles your are working as you are executing the exercise. Think and feel as your move. Have a great week!
