Workout #2 - Wednesday: Lower Body

Here are my 4 favorite lower body exercises that can be done literally anywhere.  All you need is your body weight & a pair of dumbbells!


Plié Squat


  • Hold one dumbbell with hands wrapped around the top of its head.
  • Standing with legs slightly wider than shoulder width apart, rotate you ankles so your toes are facing out.
  • Slowly bend the knees and lower your legs until your thighs are parallel to the floor as you squat down.
  • Press through your heels to slowly rise up to the start position.
  • Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.



Courtesy Lunge


  • Standing with legs hip width apart, step your left leg behind you & to the right.
  • Your thighs should be crossing.
  • Bend both knees as if you were to “curtsy.”
  • Make sure your knee is aligned with your front ankle.
  • Switch sides to complete one rep.



Squat Jacks


  • Lower into squat position and jump knees out still staying in squat stance.
  • Jump, knees back in, while maintaining a low squat stance and repeat.



Single Leg Bridge


  • Lay on the floor with feet flat & knees bent.
  • Raise one leg off the ground
  • Keeping the core engaged, squeeze you glutes & press through your heels raising hips off the ground.
  • Lower slow and controlled and repeat. After you have completed x amount of reps one side, switch to the other.



Best of luck with this butt burning workout – workout 3 of this series will be released Friday!
