Grab an exercise mat and a mini band for an effective 10 minute lower body workout.
30 seconds work/10 seconds rest
Alternating side squats
Form tips - keep the chest up, sit butt back & down, push through your heels
Exercise 2 & 3:
Standing glute kick back
Form tips - keep abs fully contracted, stationary foot flat with knee soft, squeeze the glute as you raise the leg, foot flexed
Bear leg tap out
Form tips - wrists under shoulders, knees under hips, knees hover 2-3" off the ground, abs contracted, flat back
Plank leg raise
Form tips - wrists under shoulders, feet hip width apart, pelvis tucked, abs fully engaged, keep glutes activated
Place the bands a couple inches above your knees. I'm using rubber mini bands, but I love the fabric mini bands for this kind of workout, especially when wearing pants because they stay in place better.
Here are my 2 recommendations for bands that you can find on Amazon:
Always think about the muscle groups you are working; so think about the glutes, hamstrings, quads, and abs for this series.
Don't worry if you don't have mini bands, all exercises can be done without. Slow down the moves and really focus on the muscles you are using. Feel free to add weight if you want for the first 3 exercises.
Knock this out in 10 minutes...add another round if you have a bit more time!
