Lower Body Power Sculpt | Black Kite Express

Ready to build lower body strength and power? I have the perfect workout for you!

These supersets combine resistance training with cardio to increase your endurance, build muscle, burn fat, and make your training time effective and efficient.

Today you will work with Coach Amanda from Team Betty Rocker, one of our amazing coaches.

Trainer Amanda is a NASM and NESTA Certified Personal Trainer, Crossfit Level 1 Trainer, Qualified TRX Trainer, and Team Betty Rocker Trainer at Rock Your Life.

This workout really targets your legs, glutes and cardiovascular system and you can do it at home with some optional heavy objects (water bottles, dumbbells, or whatever you have).

This training is the same as our training STRONG ROCKSTAR CHALLENGE within Rock Your Life, so if you enjoy this style, stop by and take a 30-day trial (that’s enough time to take on an ENTIRE challenge, on my dime!).

Now let’s go Join Coach Amanda for this lower body burn!

If you enjoyed that workout and are looking for a sequenced plan that will make the most of your training time, the Rockstar Strong Challenge at Rock Your Life is perfect for you!

This challenge will progressively build strength and work your entire body, giving you balanced strength, complemented by energizing kickboxing classes, a quick core shred, and a power yoga class. Continue with Rockstar Strong 2 to really build on the momentum and strength you’ve gained!

Start this challenge today!
