Happy Friday, fit friends! Here is another FUN and FAST workout for you to blast some serious calories and strengthen your Lower-Body! The best part is that you don't need tons of fancy equipment or time to fit in a great workout with this Circuit Workout!

This week's Free Fitness Friday: Lower-Body Dumbbell Circuit Workout

Lower Body Circuit

How to perform this Lower-body Dumbbell Circuit Workout: 

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is a set of light-to-moderate dumbbells and an exercise mat, if needed) and can be done in any timeframe that you have (anywhere from 15-30 minutes), but should be done at a fast-pace and with minimal rest. You can even fit this workout in at the end of a workout for an extra calorie burn! Complete all exercises in a row for 1 round, rest for 1 minute, then begin with the first exercise for round 2. Complete as many rounds as you can in the time you have! (Try for 4-6 rounds!)

As always, be sure to warm up before beginning the first round and cool down and stretch when you are finished.

Round 1:

  • Triple pulse squat, 5 times (total of 15 reps)
  • 30 alternating reverse lunge (15 each side)
  • 30 skater jumps (15 each side)
  • 15 Squat thrust

Check out this short video to see how each exercise is performed and to ensure that you have proper form throughout each exercise!

Phew! Now that was fast... AND fun! And I bet your legs will be burning and your heart rate will be soaring when you are done!

Now it's time to get the rest of your day started and welcome the weekend!

Have a great workout and a wonderful weekend ahead!
