Hello friends! I’m so excited to have Jared from Tone and Tighten here with us today. His at home workouts are so great and perfect when you’re looking for a way to get exercise into your busy schedule. I am excited to do this At Home Lower Body Burnout – how many of us complain about our butts and thighs?…I know I do! Jared’s going to help us get summer ready with this one!
My name is Jared and I am the man behind the website Tone-and-Tighten.com. I am a physical therapist by day, blogger by night. I started my website because of my wife- after having our 3rd child, she asked me to put together a workout plan to help her get back into shape. With my profession as a physical therapist, I prescribe workout plans to patients all the time, so I wrote one up for her. Her friends started to ask for workout plans for themselves and my wife encouraged me to start a blog as a place to put all these workouts so that people who wanted to lose weight or get fit at home could use them. Two years later (and hundreds of workout plans later!), the blog has helped many people get back in shape with easy recipes and workouts they can do at home.
I have recently released two 8-week workout plans (Jenn is currently using one of them for her 8 Week Workout Plan) that guide you through the exact workouts you need to do each day to reach your health and fitness goals. Every day is a new workout and there is a plan for both beginners and the more experienced. You can check out those workout plans here (they are each $7.99, which makes them only $1/week!).
Today I wanted to share with you an awesome lower body workout that you can do at home. I have found that many people think that without a membership to the local gym, they can’t get in a great workout, but I am here to prove you wrong! This workout can be done in your front room while your kids are playing toys all around you. Push yourself to do as many rounds as you can – you will be amazed of what your body is capable of doing if you really try your hardest.
At-Home Lower Body Burnout Workout
The format of this workout is 30 seconds on, 10 seconds off. Grab a timer and let’s get to work!
Beginners: complete entire circuit one time through
Intermediate: complete entire circuit two times through
Advanced: complete entire circuit three times through
The great thing about this workout is that any level can do it – if you are more advanced, push yourself harder and try to get more reps in during that 30 second time frame. If you are a beginner and need to take a rest, try to keep that rest only 3-5 seconds long and then jump right back in to finish!
Here is the workout:
Here you can find quick instructional videos that teach you how to do each move:
30 seconds high knees
30 seconds single leg bridges
30 seconds jumping jacks
30 seconds donkey kicks
30 seconds speed skater
30 seconds single leg deadlift
30 seconds alternating jump lunges
30 seconds heel raises
30 seconds jumping jacks
30 seconds plie squats
Even though this is a workout focused on your lower half, I have incorporated explosive cardio to help get your heart rate up and blast those calories, which is also an important part of getting in shape.
Have a great workout!
Thank you so much Jared for this wonderful workout. It’ll be going into my arsenal of at home workouts to help get me ready for summer and to just get my butt in better shape. As Jared always says “Make it happen!” – I’m off to do my workout!!!
