BBH Summer Workout Plan_lower body

Hi all! I hope your summer is getting off to a great start! Days are busy here at our house with finishing up school, dance recitals, gymnastics shows, and BBQ’s when the weather is nice!

Hope you’re enjoying the home workouts so far. The first in the series being the Backyard Full Body Assault, and the second being the Upper Body Assault. Naturally, it was time to do a workout focused on the lower body.  For me, my lower body is my biggest challenge. I’m naturally pear shaped, so its important for me to focus extra time on my lower body to keep it in shape.  This workout covers all the areas of the lower body – quads, hamstrings, glutes, calves and all the little muscles in between. I wanted to add in some power moves, so it keeps your heart-rate going as well and keeps you burning those calories!

I know many of you are still working on the 12-week BBH Body Assault Program, but if you can’t make it to the gym, these home workouts are great to keep you focused on your goals, and have a chance to get outside and enjoy the weather!

This workout can be done anywhere you have a little bit of space. Inside or outside!

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments, but I’ve also provided video links for all the exercises so you know what everything is.

Enjoy!

    Great workout! My legs are wobbly now lol! Had a few squares of your broccoli bars afterwards. I can’t eat cheese but I added bbq spice rub into the recipe. They are my favourite guilt free snack especially with all the garden broccoli to be used up 🙂 Thx for sharing both the recipe and workout!
