Looking for moves to build your lower body strength? Here are four of our favorites brought to you by Certified Personal Trainer, David Case. The reason we love these moves is that they work multiple large muscle groups at the same time which translates to workout efficiency. Plus, working multiple muscles groups also has cardiovascular benefits. That’s a win!
Wondering how to work lower body strength these into your routine? If you’re a beginner it’s best to start out without any added weight and perform these moves using body-weight only. Once you progress, start adding dumbbells to up the ante on the challenge. Remember to only use weights that will also allow you to maintain good form. As a workout, try performing 10-12 reps of each move and repeating 2-3 times. And make sure to give your body the proper amount of rest and recovery after every workout!
Before beginning any exercise program or changing your physical activity patterns, you should always consult with your doctor or physician, particularly if you have been injured or have a medical condition.
