ALL LEVELS / dumbbell lower body workout
Equipment: Dumbbells, small weight plates & exercise mat
Functional strength allows you to perform everyday tasks, such as carrying groceries, vacuuming your house or simply moving objects, effortlessly and with a significantly lower risk of injuring yourself.
Today, with the help of our friend Hannah Braun, a personal trainer based in Vienna, we will focus on your lower body strength. This is already Hannah’s fourth EVO workout. In case you missed the others, here they are: full-body dumbbell workout, 30-minute upper body workout and 20-min abs and core workout.
This dumbbell lower body workout consists of 5 functional exercises to be performed for 3 rounds. The repetitions vary between the exercises and go from 8 to 15. It’s, as usual, a minimal session: you’ll need a pair of dumbbells and some small weight plates for a particular quad focused exercise.
Let’s smash this session!
If you don’t have the equipment originally needed for this workout, you can substitute it with these everyday items or use these alternative exercises.
As a warm-up, Hannah recommends a cardio boost to get your heart rate up: slow running, walking or skipping. If you feel you need an extra activation focused on your lower legs, grab a resistance band a perform exercises such as fire hydrants, air squats, leg kick backs or donkey kicks.
