5 Ways Faisal’s Lower Body Workout Pumps Up Your Fitness

Strong legs are your body’s motor, says Faisal Abdalla, Mindful’s fitness ambassador. Condition them properly and you can count on them to help keep you active for life. Check out these five benefits.

1. Tire Less Quickly

Stronger leg muscles give you more oomph when you head out for a power walk. They let you take a longer stride and help absorb the impact of each step.

2. Get a Metabolic Boost

Giving it your all in a quick HIIT workout increases your calorie burn both short term and up to 24 hours later. Win-win!

3. Improve Daily Function

This workout moves you from side to side, forward and backward, up and around. All of that motion trains your muscles to better handle your daily movements.

4. Burn More Fat

Faisal’s HIIT circuit pairs strength-training with cardio elements to raise your heart rate, speed up metabolism and burn more calories and fat.

5. Build Muscle

In less than half the time it takes to finish a traditional, time-intensive strength workout, HIIT sessions match (and in some cases beat) the muscle strength gains.
