Lower Body Workout Moves

I know we have done kettlebell and plank exercises for awhile so how about a few leg moves to throw into your routine? Here are three out of many that I found on the web. Give them a try. The first one is a “Stability Ball and Hip Raise”.

hip raise

Lie on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on a stability ball. Move your body up until you form a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. See example A. Then lift a knee to your chest, then back down and then do the opposite leg. See example B. Do 20 reps. 10 for each leg.

Walking on Toes
Pick up a pair of heavy weights and hold them at your sides. Raise your heels and walk around in a circle for about 60 seconds.

reverse move

Reverse Move with Weights
If your knees are up for it, get a 6 inch box or step and a pair of light weights and hold by your sides. In example A step backward and move your right leg as you lean forward at your hips and reach toward your feet. In example B reverse the move and return to the starting position. Start off with about 5 reps on each leg to get a feel for the move and then go more if you are up for it.
