Not everyone is a morning person… I’m not but I’ve trained myself into a ‘fake’ morning person. I’ve noticed that when I workout early, my energy level is much higher, and my coffee intake is lower. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet or in my case not snooze a thousand times – just get up and get moving!
Nothing screams Monday better than working your legs. Try the workout below for an extra oomph and challenge yourself. I promise you’ll feel the burn tomorrow.

Walk it off, shake it off, and strut it off…
