Leg Blaster – Workout Video!


Now we’re going to start having some fun on this site!  My big races (half-marathon & Duathlon Nationals) are behind me so I’m free to focus on more fun things…like posting workout videos!  Plus, I’m determined to make iMovie my bitch.

This is a quick, down & dirty workout for your legs and butt.  You can do several sets, or incorporate it into a workout you already do, just for some added umph…because that’s what you’re looking to achieve in those workouts, right?  Of course!

Let’s get ready for some fire:


Subscribe to my YouTube Channel or visit the VITA SWEATS page on this site for more workouts.

I’ll be adding more and more before the holidays (ugh..shudder) so you’ll be ready for all those drunken nights holiday parties!

Let me know what you think about this video and what you would like to see in the future.  I take requests.

    Definitely need to work out my legs more and have kind of gotten lazy on this, so seriously thank you for sharing here today and giving me a bit of motivation, too! 🙂

      Oh we totally would! Someone would have to physically stop us or we would just go until we drop. Either way there would be wine afterward!! Thanks Kim. I’ll be posting more soon:-)

    I love this workout–totally up my alley. Now I just need my butt to calm down a bit so that I can handle lunges (squats are still ok for some reason). You are a natural on camera!

  15. Nellie

    Okay so I wanted to make sure that I got home so I could see it without any interruption and I LOVE it!! I think I am going to do this when I go out of town this weekend! You look so cute!! I think 3 rounds maybe four? I bet you are the best instructor evaaaaaaa!

    1. vita88

      That is awesome! Yes, 4 rounds and your legs should be toasty. Let me know how it goes.
      I used your ab move with the weight overhead as part of my class last night. They loved it!..and by “love” I mean they hated it so you know it was a good one!! Thanks Nellie.

  16. Charlotte

      You’re pretty awesome yourself.

  17. Sara @ Fit.Fun.Femme

    I love everything about this – but mostly how darn cute you are! And tiny! I ALWAYS neglect my legs because I hate when they’re sore on a run, but the’ve always been my problem area so it’s time I did something. Thanks for this awesome video!

    1. vita88

      Ha ha thanks Sara! I’m always surprised by how small I look!? Is that weird? Probably. In my mind I’m MUCH taller!
      I know exactly how you feel about not wanting sore legs, but strength training like this (especially the plyometric work) is perfect for runners. It can only help, I promise!

  18. Carla

    Great video! I subscribed to your channel! Even though I won’t miss them if you are putting them on your blog. Oh, I need to get out of my comfort zone and do some videos.

  21. Leah

    Hey – me again:) Since you’re taking requests – and since I’m going to try to follow all your videos to get my butt moving again – I need a good ab routine (but I’m sure that is on your list as who doesn’t need a good ab routine??) and I’d love to see some Tabata style videos…Thanks Allie!

      Love seeing you here! You have picked two of my favorites. I teach a Tabata style class and I’m thinking of having it filmed to post and abs? What runner doesn’t need good ab moves? Love them!! Thanks for the requests. Looking forward to creating & filming…
