Strength training is a crucial aspect of my lifestyle. I love lifting weights because it makes me feel strong, sexy and empowered! This workout is a running-specific session. It focuses on my favourite exercise to increase my leg stability and power. When I train strength at the gym, I like to work my whole body with emphasis on glutes, arms and core.
I hope you enjoy this full body burner!
