Equipment Needed: Medium to Heavy Dumbbells I would suggest anywhere between 12 - 20 lb dumbbells for these exercises. You will move slow, with control, and heavier weights will help you feel the burn!
Targets: Quads, glutes & hamstringsFind a controlled pace, down for 2 counts and up for 2 counts!
Targets: quads & glutes Grab a heavy pair of weights. 90/ 90 degree lunge in both legs as you lift and lower!
SQUAT TO LUNGE
Targets: quads, glutes and hamstrings. Transition between squats and lunges, holding the dumbbells at the sides as if you're carrying 2 suitcases!
SINGLE LEG RDL
Targets: hamstrings Modification: Hold 1 single dumbbell in the same leg that's lifted in the back to help stabilize.
Targets: glutes and hamstrings This is a great exercise for the back of the legs without the impact of squats or lunges on the knees.
