Try this quick and effective lower body workout that can be done anywhere with just your body weight or a set of dumbbells for added resistance and challenge. These 5 functional movements tone your entire lower body and improve your core strength and balance by challenging your body’s basic movement patterns.
Our amazing bodies move in 7 basic ways (we squat, hinge, bend, lunge, rotate, push & pull). Functional movements – like the ones in this Lower Body Toning Workout – target those basic movement patterns which help us “function” better in daily life (genius right!) and strengthen our body’s basic movement patterns.
Whether you are bending over to give your littles a hug, hauling groceries into the house or cleaning the bathroom toilets. Your body is moving in multiple patterns – so choosing exercises in your workout that mimic these movements is a win win! Sculpted body + improved overall strength and endurance to live your best life!
So let’s do this!! Let’s work some legs!! Whether you love a good lower body burn or could think of 100 other things you’d rather do, leave your emotions at the door and just get it done because I’m willing to guess toned legs and a sculpted booty isn’t something you would be mad about! And it’s not gonna happen without some strength training.
This simple workout will get all things lower body fired up and get you one workout closer to your goals!
