RESISTANCE TRAINING - LOWER BODY

  

I like to do some workout ever day. To get a strong and healthy body you need to exercise regurarly and varied all year around. You need to combine soft and restorative training with really tough and challenging exercises.

This is a mini weekend workout of only 5 exercises, do 20 reps of each exercise for 3 rounds. It won't take you a long time and the only thing you need is a resistance band, but I guarantee you will feel it the day after!

SQUATS WITH SIDE KICKS

Feet shoulder width apart. Knees and toes pointing forward. Place rubber band by your ankles or just above. Squat and while standing, lift one leg straight out to the side. Make sure your weight is on your heels and chest is up.

 

STANDING BACK KICKS

For balance, use a pole, wall or similar. Place the band by your ankles. Press your leg back and hold back with resistance when releasing.

FLYING SCISSORS

Place the band by your ankles. You are doing a lunge, but “flying”. Keep up the pace.

 

BACK KICKS ON FLOOR

Come to all fours, on your lower arms. Place rubber band around one ankle and the other side under your foot. Press your foot up towards the sky. Release with resistance.
