She Works Her Lower Body

Johnson makes sure that her entire body gets a workout. Naturally, this means she doesn't skip leg day. She shared some of her favorite lower body workouts in this Instagram video. Johnson is seen doing squats, lunges, and hip thrusts in the video. She captioned it, "Need help with this? Comment VIDEO then check your DM's. How many days per week do you devote to exclusively doing strength training for your lower body?"
