Welcome to this week’s workout challenge, where you’re going to be getting an awesome lower body workout. And trust us, it’s a doozy! Actually, it’s about 500 doozies.
Most people think you can’t develop strong, muscular legs with just bodyweight exercises. But this workout proves otherwise.
At first glance, the workout may seem easy, because the instructions are pretty simple. But give it a shot and you’ll see how challenging it really is. We’re pretty sure by the end, your legs are going to feel like Jell-O.
Do each exercise for 25 total reps then immediately move to the next exercise (no rest!). Once you finish 1 round, rest for 60 seconds. Do 4 total rounds to reach the full 500 reps.
- Front Lunges (Right)
- Front Lunges (Left)
- Sumo Squats
- Bodyweight Squats
If you get through round one and notice that you can do more than 25 reps for each exercise, feel free to do more. This will increase your total rep amount and you can create the goal of eventually being able to do a 1,000 Rep Leg Assassin Workout.
If you’d like, you can add one more exercise to the circuit: calf raises. Do 25 reps between the sumo squats and the bodyweight squats. That brings your total reps for the workout up to 600!
You can decrease the amount of reps for each workout. Also, feel free to take rests between each exercise. This will help your muscles recover and allow you to make it to the full 500 reps.
This looks like a killer workout. Wit this quarantine, at home I may give it a try and die on my bed for a few days to recover then.
“pleas” are emotional appeals for help. “plié” is the movement from ballet that you are describing.
