screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-10-40-50-amBack at it again for leg day!

Thursday exercises are below.

Hero Lunge: Works legs & glutes

Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Keep your left foot planted as you lunge forward, back, to right, and diagonally behind left leg, standing after each lunge. Continue for 30 seconds. Switch sides; repeat.

This is an all around great leg exercise. Click here and check out exercise #3 to see how it’s done. Basically you are going to make a box with your legs. Repeat each leg for 30 seconds.

Fire Hydrant with Kick: Another move that is a variation of an exercise we’ve done many times before, the fire hydrant. Only difference is this time, we are holding the outward position and adding a kick.

Pistol Squat: Oh you know you love to hate these! But they are awesome for hip strength and stability, and of course your legs will be burning too! Below is a video we watched before, it’s kinda long but gives a comprehensive explanation of how great this exercise is.

Single Leg Hip Thrusts: This sounds like the exercise we did a lot in September, and it is similar, but backwards. You can use a bench, chair, couch, the edge of your bed, whatever is available to you. Watch below to see how it’s done.
