has a photo spread of Carrie Underwood demonstrating her typical leg workout.  It's a variety of intense exercises with names like cherry pickers, skater hops, lateral lunges and pulsing sumo squats.  And she does some of them while holding kettlebells and dumbbells.

Carrie Underwood performed in New Orleans over the weekend ... but the highlight of her trip may have been when she met the guy who plays Daryl Dixon on "The Walking Dead".  She Tweeted a pic and wrote, "Holy crap!  I just met Norman Reedus!  I think I played it pretty cool.  I don't look excited in this pic at all, do I?"
