Workout 1: Lower-Body Blast

After warming up, you'll complete each exercise for the number of repetitions indicated. When you finish all 3 exercises, begin at exercise 1 again until the timer hits 10 minutes. Take breaks as needed. Then cool down and stretch. 

Exercise 1: Forward to Reverse Lunge

Start standing with hands at your sides. Step forward with right foot and lower the left knee until it almost touches the ground and right thigh is parallel to the ground, breathing in. Pushing through the heel of your right foot (this is the working leg), lift right leg up and back behind the body similar to a forward lunge but passing the starting position and landing behind you. Lower until the right knee almost touches the ground and left thigh is almost parallel to the ground. Pushing through heel of left foot (this is the working leg) step the right leg all the way from behind you to the front of you as if you are performing a reverse lunge but passing the starting position. That's one rep. 

Complete 15 reps per leg

Exercise 2: Bulgarian Split Squat

Stand away from a flat bench and lift right foot back to rest toes on top of the bench. That's your starting position. With arms at your sides, lower your (back) right knee until it has almost reached the ground while breathing in. Stand back up to starting position, focusing on pushing through the heel of your left (front) foot while breathing out. The working leg is the front leg. That’s one rep.

Complete 15 reps per leg

Exercise 3: Single Leg Pistol Squat
