Torch 500+ Calories With This Short Lower Body Blast

Everyone at one point or another hits a plateau, and we all want to speed up our results and get to our goals quicker. By adding weights into your workout, you can both increase your progress and avoid any plateau that you may hit.

Here is a free workout that will work both your glutes and legs. Check out the full workout below and follow along:

Lower Body Burn:

  1. Curtsy Lunges with Dumbbells: Squat in between 20 reps x 3.
    – Make sure you aren’t compromising form for weight.
  2. Pistol Squats: 15 each leg x 3.
    – Don’t let your knees go over your toes. Hold a heavyweight and put most of your weight on your heels.
  3. Side Lunge Squat with weight: 20 reps each leg x 3.
    – Keep foot faced forward, so you don’t stress your knees.
  4. Glute Towel Slide: 15 reps x 3.
    – Put all of your weight on the standing foot. Keep weight in the heel. Go as deep as you can.
  5. Jump Squats: 30 jumps x 3.
  6. Sumo Pulses: until exhaustion: (aim for 30 pulses) x 3.

The great thing about this workout is that you can do it at the gym or home. No fancy equipment is needed. All you need is some weights and you are good to go. This is the same type of workout that you can find in our Weights for Women program, and it has been used by thousands of women to lose weight and tone their body. 

It has been a popular myth that lifting weights alone will naturally make you bulk up when, in fact, that isn’t the case. What happens is it helps you burn fat faster and target specific areas. To bulk up, you have to eat the diet of someone who is trying to bulk, and you have to put a lot of work into it.

Weights aren’t just useful for targeting fat, but they are great if you hit a plateau. If you find yourself at a place where you can’t seem to make any more progress, and your goals appear to be slipping away, try adding in some weights to get over this and get back on track to your goals.
