LEG TRAINING TIPS:
1) Move quickly from one exercise to the next, but keep your form tight to avoid injury. You should feel a good burn in the muscle during each super set, but no pain in the joint.
2) Rest about 1 minute between each superset rotation. Use this time to stretch.
3) Keep your abdominal tight when doing the all exercises; this is especially important with the plyometrics.
