Let’s slow things down and embrace that feeling of the quadriceps lifting and lowering you as we work through compound movements that will also call on the hamstrings and glutes but primarily the quads will be feeling the load! Quality over quantity applies, particularly when time under tension is the aim!

Following the exercises aimed towards the quads, we will challenge the calves unilaterally before a fun finisher to combine demand on the calves & quads!

The timer will be on for a majority of the workout 1 minute per exercise with 30 seconds rest inbetween!

All you will need for this lower body workout is a pair of dumbbells, your mat, a wall for wall sits and a yoga block to elevate those heels!

The dumbbells Content Creator is using for your reference are 12.5 kg each!

This is targeting the quads & calves but of course the hamstrings & glutes will be working too!

I loved the pace of this workout… and the heel elevated squats being the staple are one of the favourite movements!!

The feeling after a good leg session is always so worth it!! Have a great session!!
