LEG TONING AND LENGTHENING WORKOUT

Most often when exercising, the little muscle groups that tighten and tone the body are overlooked. The little muscles are important to help balance the body. Here is one of my favorite leg workouts that focus on the little muscle groups to give you long lean legs. I am taking you back old school!
