Lower Body Workouts

Good morning! Get Monday's workout sorted with this leg/booty burner πŸ‘πŸ”₯This was an absolute KILLER πŸ™ˆ 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 πŸ’¦ 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 πŸ’πŸΌ~ 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 πŸ’ͺ🏻 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! πŸ‘πŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ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
