It's no secret that most of us want a strong, good looking backside. We scroll through different workouts looking for that one workout routine that will solve all our problems. Honestly, it really doesn't have to be so complicated.
Here are 4 SIMPLE moves you can do once a day to help increase your leg/butt conditioning. You can do these anytime, anywhere. Adding these moves to my mornings or evenings regardless of my workout that day has significantly improved my leg endurance and muscle tone!
10-MINUTE LEG CIRCUIT - NO EQUIPMENT
We recommend doing 1-3 sets of 20 reps non stop for the best results.
When squatting, make sure you keep your back straight, and your knees DO NOT pass your ankles. This will help not only keep your core tight, but also protect your knees from any damage. If you can, try and keep most of your weight towards your heels while squatting.
Similar to squats, make sure make sure you keep you back straight, and you front knee DOES NOT pass your ankles on the lunge.
3. SQUAT JUMPS
These full body movements will really hit your legs and core. If you are new to these, you can start with smaller jumps until you feel comfortable. It's generally ideal to do these on a softer surface such as grass, or a mat to protect your knees. Similar to squats, make sure your knees do not pass your ankles, even when you are getting set in the jump position. These are meant to be explosive, but not meant to cause injury. If you're feeling weak or any pains in your joints, don't hesitate to take a break.
4. SCISSOR JUMPS
Start in a deep lunge position, making sure your heel is touching your butt. Pushing off both feet, jump as high as you can. Land back into the lunge position so your legs can easily absorb the impact.
THAT'S IT! Easy right?
*Note: We recommend rolling out with a foam roller (rumble roller) before and after to help increase flexibility and decrease Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). Click here to check out a full body roll out video.
