Kevin Harvey’s Lower Body Blast

Workout with a Local

What I love about leg workout circuits like this one is that they burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time and are great for those with limited time or equipment. This workout will hit every part of your legs. By using a timer, you can make the circuit easier or harder based on your fitness level. If you’re a beginner, start by doing 30 seconds of work followed by 30 seconds of rest and run through all the movements one after the other in a circuit fashion completing 3 rounds. For those more advanced, increase work periods and decrease rest periods.”

Tall Kneeling Step Out Squat

Start in a tall kneeling position with your knees hip-width apart.

Step one foot out to the side, planting it flat on the ground, then push through that foot to rise into a half-squat position.

Return to the tall kneeling position and repeat with the opposite leg.

Bulgarian Split Squat

Begin by standing a couple of feet in front of a bench or raised platform.

Place one foot behind you on the bench, with the top of your foot facing down.

Lower your body by bending your front knee until your thigh is nearly parallel to the ground, keeping your chest upright.

Push back up to the starting position.

Perform 30-45 seconds on one side, rest, and then start on opposite side.

Hamstring Walkouts

Lay on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground, hip-width apart.

Lift your hips into a glute bridge position.

Slowly walk your feet out in front of you, 2-3 steps away from your center, then walk them back towards your buttocks.

Maintain the bridge position throughout, keeping your hips elevated and engaging your hamstrings.
