A lower-body circuit is just as important as a upper-body circuit. You use your quads and hamstrings for functional movements, such as putting groceries away in your kitchen. It’s important to continually strengthen them.
In the lower-body circuit, warm up with elbow-to-knee squats. After you go through the circuit twice, end with a speed walk. This increases your heart rate, which means an increase in calorie burn, and works out any soreness from muscle fatigue.
Do this circuit twice through:
Elbow-to-knee squats – two sets of 30
Cable kick back – two sets of 15
Ball bridge – two sets of 30
Lunges length of gym (down and back is 1) - three times
Weighted elbow to knee squats – two sets of 30
Speed walk on incline of 10% for five minutes
