Lunch Time Leg Workout

Another lunch time workout for Jax and I while Marlie slept. On the menu today: LEGS! Doing legs at home is a lot easier than you realize. You don't need any fancy equipment like a leg press machine, stair master, or a squat bar to fire up your lower-body muscles.

This one had my glutes on fire and I was so happy about it. You can do this circuit anywhere—your living room, a hotel room, a park — as long as you have some weights and space around you. That makes this workout the ultimate zero-excuse leg burner.

I used a 25 lb dumbbell for this workout and if you want to ramp it up you can add a band to the glute kickbacks and monster walks


3x

DB squat to straight leg DL x 12

Glute kickbacks x 20 each leg

Goblet squat with 4 pulses at the bottom x 10

Single arm DB lunges x 12 each leg


HIIT Finisher 3x

Monster walks 4 forward and 4 back x 4

sprawl to squat x 12

Full Body workout you can do in your living room! (No equipment needed)

I am so excited to share this workout with you guys. This workout targets the whole body and gives you the best of both worlds—you're building muscle and torching calories! This workout doesn't require any equipment so just find a spot in your house, hotel room or outside and let’s go.
