Frida Lindström has worked with training and health for more than 20 years. Today she runs membership gym UCSP in Stockholm, where she works as holistic lifestyle coach, PT, nutritionist and yoga teacher. We have asked her to share her best tips for an effective and challenging workout with focus on legs and glutes. Did anyone say Leg Day?
HOW TO DO THE WORKOUT SESSION
Try this workout with focus on legs and glutes. Do the exercises for 1min for ecah exercise/side, rest for 30sec between exercises. Repeat the exercises 3 times - we can promise you that you will feel it the day after!
1. PISTOLS WITH MULTI BALANCE TRAINER
Lift up left leg from the floor, grip the handles. Bend your right knee and come down as far as you can, go back up again. Repeat this exercise for 1min and then shift side.
2. COSSACK LUNGES WITH KETTLEBELL
Take a firm grip om the kettlebell handle with the bottom up. Stand with feet wide apart. Go down in a low lunge sideways, try to get glute, heel and foot in the same line. Press back up to standing position. Repeat the exercise for 1min and then shift side.
3. LUNGE WITH KETTLEBELL, ARM STRAIGHT UP
This exercise targets thighs and glute but also challenges your core and shoulder stability. Grip the kettlebell with your right hand and raise your arm straight above your head. Take one step forward with your right leg and go down in a lunge, press back up to start position. Work one side at the time. Always keep your arm locked during this exercise.
4. FROM KNEELING DOWN TO JUMP WITH WEIGHT VEST
Weight vest - super good tool to take your training to the next level! It makes the exercise tougher, heavier and more effective and your arms and hands are free.
Stand up straight with good posture, take one step back and come down on right knee. Go back up with one leg at a time and land in a jump.
