Lower Body DB Workout

This workout was the perfect combo of cardio + weights. Through every set of 8, I was struggling to hit that last rep and it was one of those bittersweet feelings. You want to scream in the moment because the burn is real, but in the end you feel so accomplished and proud that you finished.

You can adjust the weight of the dumbbells as needed, but always start heavier and then go down if you need. I used 10lbs for most and 20lb for the SL deadlifts.

Grab your dumbbells and let’s go!

3 Rounds

SL deadlift to clean knee drive x 8 each leg

elevated squat to curtsy x 8 each way

bulgarian split squat to hammer curl x 8 each leg

3 Rounds

squat to alt. curtsy (STAY LOW) x 10 total

weighted reverse burpee x 8


2-3 Rounds

weighted donkey kicks to fire hydrants x 8 each one then switch

straight leg tap side to side (see video) x 8

Good Luck and in need of an accountability partner ?
