Workout

 

CIRCUIT ONE:                                                                                        

Repeat two to three times.

 

Curtsy Squat: Start with your feet hip-width apart, arms at your side or resting on your hips. Cross your right leg behind your left and rest your toe on the floor about two feet behind you. Keep your right heel up while performing a squat. Do not let your left knee extend past your toes. Return to the start and repeat on the other side. Complete 20 reps, alternating sides.

 

Sumo Squat: Stand with your feet wider than hip-width apart with your toes slightly turned out. Perform a deep squat without lifting your heels off the ground. Return to a standing position. Ready to feel the burn? Hold a weighted ball or Kettlebell at your chest while performing the exercise. Complete 30 reps.

 

CIRCUIT TWO:

Repeat two to three times.

 

Walking Lunges: Standing upright, step forward with your left leg. Lower your hips toward the floor, bending both knees to almost 90-degree angles. Do not let your front knee extend past your toes. Push off your right foot, returning to a standing position and perform on the opposite side. Complete 30 reps, alternating legs.

 

Wall Sits: Lower into a 90-degree squat with your back against the wall and hold. Tip: Hold your arms out in front of you or place a weighted plate on your thighs for an added burn. Hold for one minute.

 

CIRCUIT THREE:

Repeat two to three times.

 

Deadlifts: Holding a medium-weight dumbbell in each hand, stand with your feet hip-width distance apart and slightly bend your knees. Bend at your hip joint, lowering the weight toward the ground while gazing forward. Keeping your back straight and weights close to your legs. Slowly stand back up by pressing your hips forward. Complete 20 reps.

 

Calf Raises: Standing with feet hip-width distance apart slowly raises your heels. Continue until you are on your tiptoes, slowly lowering back to a flat foot. Complete 30 reps.
