I hope you’re ready for today’s Lower Body Workout! This is a quick, but challenging workout routine. Grab some dumbbells and a yoga mat and you are ready to go!
If you don’t have dumbbells you can do these exercises with body weight, or grab something around the house for some added resistance. Using weights will help increase the challenge and boost your metabolism during your workout.
I use two 20-pound dumbbells in this workout.
I went through this routine 2X. The first time I completed it as a HIIT workout (in the video). The second time I did 20 reps per exercise. I like the challenge of using both workout techniques during my exercise routines, because your body responds differently to each technique. As you know, I am all about mixing up my workouts.
During my Reps version of the workout I increased my weight to 75 lbs during the Romanian Deadlifts, and decreased my weights to two 12-pound dumbbells during the skier exercise.
I am also still doing my daily Sun Salutations. I attached the video below.
Don’t forget to Warm-Up before the video! I filmed a warm-up here: Quick 5-Minute Pre-Workout Warm Up. Let me know if you like having the warm up and cool down videos available separately, or if you prefer them all in one workout video. I uploaded them both ways for this workout, because I want to see what people like best!

Lower body workout is just finished what I needed!
Great, loved it! The side hip press and lifts were so hard! Never did that move before, it was fun. Thanks for everything!! I am really enjoying weight lifting thanks to you.
