30 Minute Legs | Legs Like Carrie
If I were Aladin and had a genie that would grant my wishes, somewhere on my list I would wish for legs like Carrie Underwood. Butttttt since there’s no genie in my foreseeable future I guess I’ll just have to work hard and get killer legs the old fashioned way.
I hope I’m not alone when I say leg day is my absolute favorite day(s) of the week. Leg presses, squats, hamstring curls, I love it all. Or should I say lovED.
Since Kreed was born I haven’t made it into the gym, but you can bet you rear that I’ve gotten in my leg workouts. The secret it simple, modify your workout to fit your surrounding which in my case is my living room.
On my hunt for at home leg day ideas I thought about Carrie Underwood and wondered how she maintains such great legs while on the road and mommy-ing. Well. I did some research and it turns out that her workout is completely doable at home. So, I tried it out, switched some things up, and am now sharing my Carrie Underwood inspired workout with all of you! (For more at home workouts click here.)
As always, this workout can be completed in 30 minutes(or less) and can be modified for different experience levels!
Beginners: Go through 1 time
Moderate: Go through 2 times
Advanced: Go through 3 times (or more!)
If you really want to go all out, add some weight! No weights at home!? Get creative! A gallon of milk, a car seat, even you child would make a great substitute for a dumbbell or plate weight.
I hope you enjoy this leg day workout as much as I do!
(And I hope you’re sore tomorrow!)
Lunges x15 each leg
Cherry Pickers/Deadlifts x20
Ski Jumps x15 each leg
Lateral Lunge x15 each leg
Squat jumps x15
Pulsing Sumo Squats 25-50 pulses
(I like to go to failure on this)

Give this workout a try and let me know how it goes! What are some of your favorite leg day exercises!? What can I do to help make your at home exercises more enjoyable?
Final note: Thanks to my husband for being a great model. He says the post should be titled ‘Legs like Jesse.’ He also wants everyone to look at his calves……Men….(if I never post again it’s because he killed me for telling you all of that! ha!)
