      Flavia demonstrates them in the video (link above) if they’re not all on that video look through her leg workout videos on youtube and all the exercises are demonstrated.

      if you don’t know an exercise use your initiative, you can’t have everything done for you.
      google and youtube have pretty much everything covered.

        Hey Flav, Great work! I’m still confused about whether or not it’s better to do lunges with weights. In the Curvalicious Leg Workout, you do walking lunges or static lunges, whiich I alternate on leg day, using weight for the static lunges. In one of your You Tube videos you also used a barbell with lunges. I just wondered why you didn’t add weight with the static lunges in the Curvalicious workout and if it’s not a good idea for me to be doing it. Thanks! You are an inspiration!.

          Hey Susan, I always mix it up. SOme days I go into the gym and throw some heavy weights around to stimulate muscle growth more that just burning calories and other times my goal is to increase my heart rate to burn a lot of fat which is easier done with low rest periods and when I am resting only a short time I won’t add too much weight as it takes longer to recover.

          It’s good to mix it up, weight and non-weights. If you want to add some definition to your legs, use weights more often.
