Move It Monday: 25 x 25 Lower Body Burner

by tinareale on April 8, 2013

Good morning! I hope you all are coming off an enjoyable weekend of fun and relaxation. We had quite a nice one around these parts. Still extremely busy, but overall very nice. Peter spent the weekend working on building a new fence for our house, so I took the kids out to blow off some energy.

And to do a little “balance finding” for myself. Gotta love going to toss on a comfortable shirt and getting a lovely reminder, huh? In the sense of finding balance, I’m going to be quick today. So let’s get right to that Move It Monday workout.

It’s short. It’s a burner. It’s something to try only if you are looking to waddle a little the next day. Winking smile


But it’s also fun and effective.

5 lower body exercises.

5 sets of each exercise.

25 reps per set.

That means 25 sets of 25 reps of lower body work. Like I said, it’s a burner.

25 x 25 Lower Body Burner

Exercise Guides:

You can either complete the workout as a circuit (doing each exercise back to back with a rest between each round) or as straight sets (doing all 5 sets of one exercise with a shorter rest between each set before moving on to the next exercise). Also, the goal is the 5 sets, but feel free to do 2 or 3 instead. Make the workout work for you! And have fun with it.

Happy Training!

Do you like working out the lower body?

Looks awesome! I’ll have to save this once I’ve made it a few more days from my 1/2 recovery! ;)

I used to hate working my lower body but now kind of love it. This looks like a total burner workout!! BTW – love that top and the mantra.

It was a great weekend to be outside! I do like working out by lower body because I’m still working on building up upper body strength so legs/lower body are easier for me. I haven’t done CrossFit in a while so I really miss some of these lifts/moves, might have to do this one!

11 Melissa @ Live, Love, & Run April 8, 2013 at 12:10 pm

Ohhh, adding these to my list of moves to use to avoid boredom. ;)

12 Melissa April 8, 2013 at 12:40 pm

This looks tough in a good way! I’ll be keeping it in my vault for sure.

sumo squats make me laugh, no idea why. Until they start to hurt.

14 Meghan @ After the Ivy League April 8, 2013 at 1:22 pm

Definitely pinning this for future use, looks like a great workout!

I like working out the back side of my lower body – hamstrings, glutes, etc. I don’t enjoy as much working out the quads because I feel they are so easily overworked by fitness DVDs, bicycling, running, etc. Plus, I tend to have large thighs/legs, and I feel like doing MORE squats just makes them a tad larger if I end up building a bit more muscle. I love having a more lifted bum and stronger hamstrings, so that is a fun area for me to work – the back side. At the end of the day, I need to work all muscles in my lower body evenly to be strong and balanced. I love that your workout above (and the workouts you design in BBB) seem to work out all the muscles evenly not just targeting one set.

One of my biggest pet peeves with routines is if they aren’t balanced to hit all parts of the body, so glad to hear that you see that in them. And yea – quads do get worked a lot with many standard fitness activitities.

I love working lower body…but I love all strength training workouts :) I may try this on Wednesday morning since I’m planning to do lower body!

Working out the lower body is THE BEST. Cannot wait to try this out.

Awe, the little ducks are out where you are :) . There’s still snow on the ground up here zz.

ps. I love that shirt!!

Working my lower body is my favourite- because I’m quite strong in the legs. And ain’t nothing wrong with shaping your butt too ;)

21 Heather @ Fit Mama Real Food April 9, 2013 at 1:59 am

22 Purelymichelle April 9, 2013 at 8:16 pm

My GF tried this routine and she said that it was one of the hardest things EVER!!! So I guess it must be effective :) )
