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

This week's Free Fitness Friday: Lower Body & Core Body-weight Workout

Lower body and core workout

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is your body and some open space) and can be done in anytime frame 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:

  • 20 jumping squats
  • 20 alternating reverse lunge with front kick (10 each leg)
  • 20 squat thrusts
  • 20 plank jacks (on hands or elbows)
  • 20 burpees with a jump (no push-up)

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

And there you have it! A simple, yet challenging lower body and core workout that you can do anywhere, anytime, and with no equipment! Just your body and some motivation! Working out and exercising does not have to be complicated... just MOVE MORE!!

Have a great workout and a wonderful weekend ahead!
