Favorite Lower Body Workouts
In the end, understanding the importance of your lower body and training it properly are two different challenges. We’ll help you overcome that problem so you can become a pro at prepping the muscles in your lower half.
Note that we’ve divided these lower-body workouts by important development design (also known as the squat, hip pivot, and lunge) to make planning another lower-body program much easier.
- Squat with a dumbbell
Maintain a hip-to-bear-width separation between your feet while holding a couple of dumbbells at a tolerable distance by your sides.
Push your hips back, twist your knees, and lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor, keeping your back level, chest up, and center supported.
Take a breather, then push yourself back up to the starting position.
- Squat with a dumbbell flagon
Hold a dumbbell in front of your chest in an upward motion, measuring the top end with two hands. Maintain a hip-to-bear distance between your feet.
Push your hips back and lower your body until your thighs are essentially flat to the ground, keeping your back level and elbows pointed down.
Take a breather and then slowly push yourself back up to the starting position.
Split squat in Bulgaria
Stand facing away from a seat, holding a pair of dumbbells at your sides at a safe distance. Look behind you for your left foot’s toes on the seat.
Lower your body until your right thigh corresponds to the ground, keeping your waist upstanding and your center drawn in.
Interrupt and then push yourself back up to the starting position. Ascend to reps on both legs.
Lunge to the side (or side jump)
Hold a pair of dumbbells at a safe distance at your sides, palms in, and stand tall with your feet hip-width apart.
Step to one side with your left leg, keeping your right leg straight and your right foot on the floor, then press your hips back as you twist your left knee. Reduce the weights on one or both sides of your left knee until your left thigh is parallel to the ground.
Take a breather and then push yourself back up to the starting position.
Extending the glutes
Lie down on your back with your arms about your sides. Bend your knees and place your feet flat on the ground.
To support your center muscles, enter through your navel and then compress your glutes to force your hips up so your body forms a straight line — no angling — from knees to shoulders.
Keep your head pressed against the floor and your gaze fixed on the roof.
For a beat, stand firm on the footing, then descend and lift and repeat.
Hold a substantial dumbbell at your chest with two hands from a bowing position, with your butt laying behind you and the highest points of your feet on the floor.
Crush your glutes as you drive your hips forward to full augmentation, shifting your weight onto your knees, keeping your chest up, shoulders back, and center-aligned.
Reverse the movement by pushing your hips back and gently lowering your buttocks onto your heels.
Pivot with a single leg and a circle
As you stand up straight with your feet hip-width apart and your knees moderately bowed, wrap an obstacle band around your left foot and hold it with your right hand.
Raise your right leg off the floor a couple of inches and rotate forward at your hips until your middle is as close to correlating with the floor as possible, keeping your back level, your center drew in, and your left knee slightly twisted. (Your right leg kicks back as you lower.) While holding the band, your right hand should be lowered, and your left arm can be out to the side for balance.
Return to a single-leg standing stance and repeat the action, completing all reps with your left side leg before switching sides.
Standing tall with your feet hip-width apart, holding a couple of dumbbells at a comfortable distance by your sides (palms in).
Move forward with your right foot, keeping your chest up, shoulders back, center-supported (imagine someone punching you in the gut), and back level. Lower yourself to the point where your front thigh is parallel to the ground and your rear knee is bowed 90 degrees (it ought to float a couple of crawls over the floor).
Interrupt, then turn the development around to return back to the starting place. Rerun the exercise, this time moving forward with your left foot. With each repetition, switch legs.
Make a backward jump
Maintain a hip-width separation between your feet while holding a pair of dumbbells at your sides.
Make a huge backward stride with your right foot, keeping your chest up and your center drawn in.
Lower your body gradually until your left thigh is parallel to the floor and your right knee is twisted 90 degrees and directly above the floor.
Take a breather and, with a firm push off your left foot, flip the development around, going forward to get back to the starting position.
After you’ve completed your set, switch sides and do the same amount of reps on each leg.
10. Curtsy jump
Maintain a hip-width separation between your feet. If you’re using a weight, place it in front of your chest, just like you would with the cup squat.
Sync your abandoned foot and outside your right foot, lowering your hips till your right thigh corresponds with the floor, lessening the weight as you step your left foot behind you, keeping your back level and your center drew in. Your left knee should be an inch or two above the ground.
To return to the starting position, turn the development around. Reps should be completed, then switch sides and repeat.
