So often you see lifters focusing only on their upper body when they hit the weights at their local gym. Which is unfortunate because lower body workout exercises to burn fat are essential for a muscular physique, unless you want to have bulging biceps and toothpick legs. For a total body workout you need to spend just as much quality lifting time on your legs as you do your upper body. We have put together a lower body burn workout that will work your hamstrings, glutes, quads and calves. So save this in your smartphone or write it down to bring with you for your next lower body workout.
Choose a comfortable weight for your dumbbell’s and drop at the waist with a flat back into a deadlift. (12 reps x 5 sets)
Keep the dumbbells at your side and lunge forward with one leg forward then bring your legs back together and alternate the other leg for the next lunge. (12 reps x 5 sets)
Get a solid lift box (block) or weight bench and prop your foot up with your back facing the box. Using a weight bar across your back, make sure the leg you are balancing on is about one large step in front of the box. Squat up and down on the leg you are balancing then alternate legs. (12 reps x 5 sets)
Use the same bar and weight you just used for the single leg squat, step up on the box and raise your opposite knee, then alternate. (12 reps x 5 sets). This is one of those lower body exercises that seems simple but you will no doubt feel the effects the next day.
Use a leg curl machine if you have access, increase the weight on each set (12 reps x 5 sets)
Use the standing or seated calf raise machine or if you don’t have one use a step with dumbbells. (12 reps x 5 sets)
So all you guys at that are lifting those upper body weights at the gym don’t forget to try some of these exercises to burn your lower body fat.
