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.
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.
- Sumo Deadlift (using dumbbell)
- Reverse Lunge
- Glute Bridge
- Front Dumbbell Squat
- Side Punching Lunges (around 3:13 into video demo)
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.
Do you like working out the lower body?
