Loving this home workout combo for toning and strengthen the legs with kettlebells and body weight. This simple workout targets the legs in different angles, make sure you feel all the movements, apply the mindfulness to the session and you will have results.
THE GOBLET SQUAT
If you have following me you know that I use goblet squats for different trainings, this basic movement is perfect and simple, it is easy to master and you will come back to it when it is needed. The technique here is to squat down as you are sitting, knees in align with the big toe of your feet. Fit your own move since we all have different body structure. If still are not sure that you are doing it right, face the wall until you master it and are ready to move on.
The squat is a quadriceps dominant, the front of the leg will lead the movement while doing it. The connection between your ankles, your knees and your hips is important so pay attention to them without obsession.
THE WEIGHTED WALKING LUNGES
Walking lunges complement the muscles worked in the previous goblet squat, the muscles of the buttocks and inner tights are targeted and will benefit the home workout as a whole.
THE ARCHER SQUAT
I love to do archer squat as a body weight exercise at home or while I travel I can go for cossack squat if I want to work on my mobility more than strength or building muscle. This movement will improve your balance and coordination.
THE SINGLE LEG SQUAT ON A CHAIR
The single set squat on a chair or bench is perfect to build stability, work on your balance and improve your mobility. This movement will also prepare you for a pistol squat. It target the same muscle group, glutes, calves and ankles.
