Lower Body Blast

Lower Body Blast

Yesterday was beautiful. The weather was PERFECT. Sunny and in the 70’s. My family spend most of the afternoon in the back yard, Playing ball with Hank( my fur baby, all 90lbs of him) sitting in the sun and watching TV on our back porch. But it got me thinking….spring is coming. Time to get your legs and booty in shape for their beach debut. So I jumped up out of my lounge chair and created this lower body blast to help get ya ready! This fast and effective work out is for anyone who wants to tighten and tone the legs, hips and butt. This work out can be done anywhere. Your living room, outside, at your kids soccer practice,the beach, running trail or the gym.

First start off with Walking lunges with dumbbells. Use weight anywhere from 5-15 lbs.
Do 10 walking lunges.

Drop weights and do 10 squat jumps. Perform squat and jump from the bottom, landing softly.

Repeat both moves 3 times!

Curtsy lunges into squats.
Keeping your weight in your left foot, take a big step back with your right leg, crossing it behind your left leg (as if about to do a ‘curtsy’). Slowly bend your knees and lower your body straight down until your front thigh is parallel to the floor, and both knees are bent at 90 degrees.

Stand and immediately drop into a squat. Repeat on the other side. Curtsy lunges to left, squat and curtsy to the right is 1 rep. Do 10!

10 squat jumps
Repeat both moves 3 times.

Hip thrusters
Lay on the ground with one leg bent and the other straight up or bent depending on your flexibility.
Raised the hips and return to the ground.
Do 10 on each leg.

10 squat jumps
Repeat each move 3 times.
