Do you like lunges?
Do you like doing leg workouts at all?
Or, a better question is, do you perform effective leg
workouts...workouts that give you the
strong, toned and defined thighs and butt you want and deserve?
Why do I ask that?
The main reason is that one the big problems I see when working with new clients (lady clients) or on the rare
occasion I have to venture into a commercial gym, is that far too many moms spend the bulk of their workout
time either on the cardio equipment or the resistance machines hoping to isolate their leg muscles.
Machines can have a place in your workout, as can a cardio machine, but not when you are trying to squeeze the
most effective workout into the least amount of time possible.
One of the best parts of my "job" is coming up with new and unique ways to turn a regular legs workout into a
more effective workout.
How is that done? By coming up with little tricks and tweaks that, without decreasing the intensity and
effectiveness of the overall weight loss workout, create a whirlwind of core activity and increased thigh,
hamstring and butt activity.
Take this video for example...
Quick Legs Workout Trick For Moms
Pretty simple, right?
Just do that little tweak in your legs workout and
you'll start to see better results.
How can you add it?
You can either swap out your lunges for the exercise shown in the video, or you could also add a set of
that exercise immediately following a lunge/squat variation.
I prefer the second option because it gives you the opportunity to use added resistance in the first
exercise, and use lower repetitiions, then add a bodyweight variation of the lunge, and do more
repetitions, before heading on to your next exercise.
See how adding that bodyweight lunge exercise immediately after the Lateral Reaching Lunge can increase the
effectiveness and intensity on your butt and hamstrings? You have the 1-2 combination of lower reps/higher
resistance combined with the higher reps/bodyweight exercise variation that works your legs in different
way to increase the intensity and overall effectiveness of the workout...
...WITHOUT adding a ton of time to the overall workout. That little bodyweight exercise adds about a minute
to each circuit, and if you do the circuit 4 times, that's only an added 4 minutes to the overall workout.
No biggie, right?
So the next time you find yourself performing a legs workout, or if you just want to develop stronger, more
toned and defined legs, give this little trick a whirl and let me know the results.
