Like newcomers, Andra is new but not new. She provides excellent information on lower body workouts ranging from your thigh to your glute. If you’re looking to put your thighs in shape or make them appear a little bigger, Andra’s Youtube channel is for you.

While you can practice these workouts indoors, Andra’s videos are unique in that she records them outside in a serene atmosphere, adding natural warmth. 

Andra has a countdown clock that prepares you for how long or how much time you’ll spend on a particular workout. But until then, she always gives an overview of what to expect.

Her consistency is why Spotcovery can vouch for her; Andra uploads at least one workout lesson weekly. 

She also has a gym where she practices her workouts, so it’s easier to try these out should you find yourself at the gym at that moment or later.
