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!)

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!)
