Lower Body Quick Tips Using Total Gym

I know I have gone on record for saying I didn't think the Total Gym was rally a good leg exercise machine, well at least for me as I have pretty strong legs and find I can max out the Total Gym pretty quick.

Part of the problem was I did not have the right attachments for my Total Gym. Well I recently upgraded my Total Gym to a new XLS version and I got the Pilates kit which includes the Pilates Toe Bar and Leg Pulley Accessory. I also added the Wing Attachment to my new Total Gym which comes in really handy when doing Leg Curls.

With all of the new Total Gym gear I can do a really good leg workout that compliments my free weight leg day nicely! so make sure to watch this Lower Body Quick Tips Using Total Gym YouTube Video and see some of my favorite Total Gym leg exercises!
