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

Lower Body Workout

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is your body, some room to move, and maybe an exercise mat or soft rug) 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:

  • 10 Right leg reverse lunge into front kick
  • 10 Left leg reverse lunge into front kick
  • 20 In & Out jumping squats (10 each)
