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

This Week's Free Fitness Friday: Lower-body Plyometric Workout

Lower Body Workout

How to perform this Lower-body plyometric workout: 

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is a low box or bench) 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 3-6 rounds!)

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

Round 1:

  • 10 box jump and squat
  • 10 right leg step-up and hop
  • 10 left leg step-up and hop
  • 10 lateral hops over the box (10 each side, 20 total)
  • 10 jump down and squat (step back up on right leg, then the left leg and keep alternating)
  • 10 squat and frog hops (bonus if you smile while doing it!)

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

That's all there is to it! And, as you can tell by the smile on my face at the end, it's actually a really fun and energizing workout! So what are you waiting for? Let's get started and JUMP into the weekend with this quick and effective lower-body plyometric workout!

Have a GREAT workout and a wonderful weekend ahead!
