1 Workout, 3 Exercises, 5 Rounds, 100% Awesome!

lower body blitzThis was one of the segments we did on LiveXFit at LiveExercise last week. It doesn’t require a lot of resistance to really get great results either! Here’s the scoop…

Goal: Sculpt the glutes, legs, core and shoulders. The burpees continue to keep the legs warm, while getting the heart rate up and burning more calories.

Tools: You can use a band, pipe, bar, broomstick or whatever you want! I used a bodylastics band and Steve used a broom. At the gym, I use an olympic bar, but you can even use dumbbells (however I prefer using bars or bands to keep the body connected).

The Lower Body Blitz:

  • 10 OVERHEAD SQUATS
  • 10 OVERHEAD STEPBACK LUNGES
  • 10 BURPEES

REPEAT 5 ROUNDS
- OR add 3 round to your existing weight routine. 

How-To

Overhead Squat:
Notice arms stay overhead (they don’t drop down in front of the face or body). Go as low as you can go while maintaining a straight back. Push with heels and keep arms locked out overhead during entire movement.
