Lower Body Workouts

|| NO EQUIPMENT NEEDED LOWER BODY HIIT|| Some of my favourite bodyweight moves to add to a lower body HIIT session. HIIT is brilliant for burning fat & great cardio – especially if you're not a fan of running! I think these moves are challenging whether you're a beginner or more used to working out – they'll get your legs burning and heart rate up. I sometimes add a kettlebell, dumbbells, a plate or a resistance band to some of these to make them more challenging. ~ ~ ✖️3x pulsing squat jumps + 3x regular squat jumps ✖️Low spit squats ✖️Pulsing squat to curtsy lunge ✖️Lunge jumps ✖️Frog squat snap jumps ✖️ X-hops ✖️ Pulsing lunges ~ Go for 40s on, 20s rest for each exercise (on each side for pulsing lunges) – I use the timer app Seconds. Repeat 3-4 times and enjoy the burn 😏 🍑🔥

Good morning! Get Monday's workout sorted with this leg/booty burner 🍑🔥This was an absolute KILLER 🙈 As I mentioned in my recent blog post, I love using bodweight movements to get my heart rate up and burn fat, and often make it more challenging by adding resistance/weights in a HIIT circuit format 💦 If you're a beginner or don't have a gym membership, you can still do this without any of the equipment I've used – it will still be tough! Also thought I'd branch out from the usual grey/monochrome combo with these blindingly bright leggings 💁🏼~ 10 exercises (single leg exercises count as 2 because you're going to repeat them on both sides!) 40s on, 20s rest for each exercise. I did 3 rounds and the DOMS were real 😳

Felt good to be back in the gym again for the first time since my injury 💪🏻 I did this lower body bench HIIT circuit a couple of weeks ago but forgot to film it so I did it again today and it was still just as tough! 🍑🏋🏼‍♀️I'd suggest you don't go too heavy with your weight as there are lots of reps! I used a 20kg barbell. ~ 40s on, 20s rest, 3 rounds (30 minute workout). (Video sped up to fit on here!) ~ The workout: 1.) Bench jumping split squats 2.) Squat + step-up with knee raise 3.) Repeat on other leg 4.) Hip thrusts 5.) Curtsy lunges 6.) Repeat on other leg 7.) Lateral sprinter jumps 8.) Single leg squat + oblique crunch 9.) Other leg 10.) Squat jumps onto bench
