Here’s that lower body workout I promised two weeks ago!
I focused on the major muscle groups of the lower body. First set includes work on the quads, one exercise with heavy weight, the second with body weight in an explosive movement. Remember to sit back on those heels!
The second set focuses on the hamstrings, with a heavy deadlift that will stretch the back of your legs followed up with hamstring curls that will be a slow burn.
Next, we’ll focus on the ab/adductors to work the sides of those upper thighs, on the inside and outside. Side lunges will be with some weight and move slowly, while the skaters should be explosive and quick.
For the glutes, bridges can be made more difficult either with weight resting on your hips or performing them elevated on a ball or incline of some sort. Step-ups are one of my least favorite exercises, but they are effective!
To finish off the strength portion of the workout, work the abs! Leg lifts and plank jacks will get the lower body moving along with the core.
Enjoy the burn!
