Lower Body Circuit [Workout Wednesday]

Happy hump day!! It’s Workout Wednesday again already and today I have a lower body circuit for you. These are some of my MOST favorite lower body exercises, and they require ZERO equipment. Thes were the best because you can do them anywhere.

In fact, this workout I filmed while in Hawaii, you may notice the tropical background 🙂 You can take this circuit anywhere from a corner in the gym, to your living room, to the beach on vacation. 

What do I need: a timer & a flat area to workout 

The workout: 

Repeat this circuit 3 times
do each move for 45 seconds to 1 minute depending on fitness level 

  • Plié jump squats 
  • Plié squats 
  • Jump lunges 
  • Backwards lunge (alternating legs) 
  • Bowlers lunge (alternating legs) 
  • Jump squats 

If you do each move for a minute, this circuit will only take you 18 minutes. You will get a little cardio along with muscle toning. Do this workout 3 times this week and your legs will be ready for shorts in no time! You can use this workout alone or to compliment other exercise. 

I demo/explain the exercises in the video below. Try this workout with me, the only bad workout is the one you didn’t do!

Seriously, how beautiful is this background?! I wish I could film here ALL the time. I miss Hawaii.

Thanks for joining me! What did you think of this workout? What kind of workouts would you like to see? Let me know in the comments. 

Xoxo 
stay sweaty!
