Strength Training is for Everyone (Part Four)

Your lower body has your large muscles.  Strength training your large muscles burns a lot more calories than working your small muscles.  This routine is different in that it is not a circuit.  You will want to do 2-3 sets of each exercise, with 1-2 minutes of rest in between. With the lower body, you can actually complete these exercises with no weight at all.  Start with little to none, and then progress to adding weight.

Squat, Wide Leg Squat, Sumo Squat, Walking Lunges, 3-way Calf Raises, Alternating Side Lunges, Wall Squat

Again, make sure you have at least one full day’s rest before working the same muscle groups again. And don’t forget your cardio! You now have a simple plan to begin a strength training program. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
