Lower Body Finisher

15 Minutes, AMRAP

This week’s high intensity routine involves lunges and lateral squats and makes a perfect finisher for a lower body training day. (Or, you can do it on its own for a quick burn and sculpt session!) For this program, the only equipment you need is a kettlebell or dumbbell. Try this anywhere with some open space!

Lower Body Finisher - 15 Minutes, AMRAP

Step 1 – Lateral Squats

First, perform 10 walking lateral squats. Hanging on to the kettlebell in front of you with both hands, step to your right into a deep squat and then return to a standing position as you bring your left leg in. Repeat across the room or space you are in. Alternate sides with each round.

Step 2 – Pass Under Lunges

Next, perform walking lunges while passing the kettlebell under the leg lunged forward to the alternate hand. Keep you core tight and as body upright as possible. Repeat this movement for a total of 8 lunges.

Do as many rounds as you can with minimal rest for 15 minutes.

For this workout, I used a 15lb kettlebell, but you can use a heavier weight or disregard the kettlebell all together if needed! Good Luck!
