This is one celebrity who is definitely committed to a healthy diet and regular exercise plan – workout videos like the one above, and combinations like you see in this weeklong Carrie Underwood Workout Program can help you get legs that are lean and toned like the country singer. (For the original printable version of this routine, see below)
While you might find yourself wishing for strong, lean legs, you have to realize that in order to get in great shape, it takes much more than just a few exercises for the lower body - or even a whole single routine. It takes regular cardio and a wide variety of strength training & toning workouts – not just for the legs, but for the entire body.
This is Fitness Blender’s week long program of our workout videos that will help you get a body like Carrie.

Always warm up before a workout & to cool down & stretch when you are finished.

The printable routine below is another way to help you tone and lean out your lower body, which is how to get legs like Carrie Underwood. This program requires no equipment and can be done anywhere. It's also quite challenging!
Workout Structure: These lower body exercises are in groups of two; do 15 repetitions of each exercise. Do each group 2-3 times through before moving onto the next group. Prevent injury by warming up before doing any kind of strength training; 10-15 minutes of cardio should do.

Pilates Side Plank with Leg Raises
Pilates Leg Pulls, Facing Down
Cool down and stretch
A workout plan alone will not get you gawk-worthy gams. In interviews with the singer, she has touted the benefits of keeping a food journal, over and over again. Keeping a food journal forces you to be aware of eating habits that could sideline your weight loss and/or fitness goals. Writing down everything that you eat also makes it really hard to mindlessly graze or snack.
Her diet is also disciplined and requires commitment. She eats healthily, sticking to a vegetarian diet and never eating fast foods. It takes a lot of work and discipline to get such toned & lean legs, but generally speaking, a healthy lifestyle and regularly doing a lower body strength training routine like the one above will get you there.
