Gina Aliotti’s Lower Body Blaster Circuit
1-minute Toe Touches (staying low to the ground)
Start at the bottom of a squat position with your feet shoulder-width apart and glutes pushed back. Unlike a squat where your upper body is lifted and chest out, I want you to lower your chest to a 90-degree angle so you are leaning forward throughout this exercise. To perform the exercise, stay in this lowered position and bring your right foot to meet your left foot, then back to starting position. Repeat, bringing your left foot to meet your right, repeating for a total of 1 minute. This will get your heart rate up and ready to move onto the next exercise.
20 Floor Butt Blasters
Start with your forearms and knees touching the ground and tummy in tight. Keep your right knee on the ground and kick your left heel up to the sky, keeping your foot flexed. Squeeze at the top, then bring your leg down to the starting position and repeat 20 times. Be sure to keep your glutes and hamstring activated and tight during the entire exercise. Keep your abs in tight so they are not drooping to the ground. This is a slow and controlled movement and you will surely feel the burn with each kick!
10 Downward Dog Knee to Chest with Leg Lift
Start in a “downward dog” position with your feet on the ground, hands out in front of you and hips lifted up, forming an upside down “V.” Bring your right knee towards your left shoulder, then without touching the ground, extend your right foot back behind you, squeezing your glutes at the top. Repeat all repetitions on that same side, then continue with your left side.
10 Side Leg Lifts with Knee to Chest
Lie on your side with your head resting on your hand. Lift your top leg straight up to the sky with your foot flexed, then bring it back down so it is hovering over your bottom leg but does not touch. Then bring your knee to your chest and back out to repeat entire motion a total of 10 times before shifting to your other side.
Do each exercise one time, then move on to the next exercise until you have completed all four exercises. You will feel an intense lower body burn. Allow yourself to sip water, rest for about 2-4 minutes, then repeat the circuit one to two more times. Let me know what you think!
Burn, baby, burn….
