Squats

Squats are a great lower body exercise for any workout routine. Start at a comfortable weight and with good posture and keep your back straight and head level. Squeeze your glute muscles at the top of each rep for extra burn. Do 3-5 sets of 10 reps.

Lunges

You can do lunges with either a squat bar or dumbbells. Step one foot forward in a lunging motion and alternate back and forth for 10 reps. (3-5 sets)

Single Leg Squats

Use a weight bench or sturdy chair and turn around so it is behind you. Take a step forward so you can squat on one leg at a 90 degree angle then put your opposite foot up on the bench. Squat up and down on one leg alternating after 10 reps on each leg (3 – 5 sets)

Reverse Leg Curls
