Over the last seven weeks, it is my hope that the Goddess Legs 3-90 workout series has helped you to get a leg up on sculpting your lower body.  Here’s a few other ways that I use to get a leg up in other areas of my life.  Perhaps, you will find these actions useful for you too.  Enjoy Episode Seven of Goddess Legs 3-90.  It has been fun! How Do I Get A Leg Up?

In Business: I read about interesting people and unique ideas in industries unrelated to soccer and then I figure out ways to tailor and apply this knowledge to what I am doing.

In Personal Development:  I make a point to find and try activities that support me living my best life.

In Travel:  I remain flexible about where I go and what mode of transportation that I will use to get there.

In Creating Opportunities: What I have between my two ears is my greatest weapon. I ask for guidance to see small details, recognize unique solutions and connect with overlooked prospects.

Shocking your leg muscles with a new set of intense exercises are sure to come with some soreness.  Here are three things that I do to help my leg muscles recover from my trainings, both on and off the field.

  1. Drink a lot of water.  Water helps to remove the lactic acid build that occurs which results in soreness.
  2. I stretch (before and after my workouts).  To relieve muscle tightness, I am constantly stretching.
  3. Hop in an ice bath.  I know it is not fun, and quite a bit painful at first, but once I get out of a 20 minute sit in the tub, my legs feel brand new.

Here’s episode 6 of the Goddess Legs 3-90 Workout Series.  Enjoy!

Besides the exercises that you do in the Goddess Legs Series, are there any other types of lower body training that you do?

I will let you in on a secret.  It is quite common for me to train in water.  From my Brazilian soccer trainers to my former speed/agility trainer (John Lewis of Energy Fitness), I have spent my fair share of running, jumping, backpedaling and using kickboards in lap pools.  The great thing about working out in water is that it provides resistance with little to no pounding on your joints.

Take a look at this Fit Sugar article about the benefits of the pool on your legs, and enjoy episode five of Goddess Legs 3-90.

How much do you run every day?  It is a question that I get asked quite often. By now, you should know that the road to great legs doesn’t have to include monotonous running on a treadmill.  And, I will tell you that it was definitely not the path I took to getting my legs looking like they do today.

Something as simple as chair squats or rolling a ball between your feet can have a transforming effect.  Check out episode four of Goddess Legs 3-90.

When my grandma wants me to hurry up and get ready, she likes to tell me to “shake a leg.”  I think that is just the encouragement I want to pass along so you can get excited and join me for episode three of the Goddess Legs 3-90 Workout Series.

Can’t wait to hear the results of including these three exercises into your lower body workout!

According to a 2013 Cosmopolitan.com article, women will spend a total of 72 days of their life shaving their legs.  If this in fact the case, I would like to encourage you to add an extra 90 seconds to your 4 minute daily routine of leg maintenance.  I'm quite sure the benefits of doing a Goddess Legs 3-90 workout will make you feel a little bit better about this "most hated body maintenance ritual."  Enjoy episode two!
