Lower Body Plate Workout

How to perform the Lower Body Plate Workout:

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is a moderate-to-heavy weighted plate) 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:

  • 20 Plate Squats (holding the plate at chest height)
  • 20 Plate Straight Leg Deadlifts
  • 20Plate alternating lunges (holding the plate at chest height)
  • 20 Plate kneeling squats (focus on contracting your abs throughout this movement)

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

There you have it! A FUN and FAST Lower Body Plate Workout that will strengthen your lower body AND core! This type of workout is also great to throw in at the end of a lower body lift to really burn out the legs and fire your core muscles!

Have a great workout and a wonderful weekend ahead!
