Lower Body Workout 15 Of The Best Exercises Openfit

1. Dumbbell squat. Stand with your feet hip to shoulder-width apart, holding a pair of dumbbells at arm’s length by your sides. Keeping your back flat, chest up, and core braced, push your hips back, bend your knees, and lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor.
2. Dumbbell goblet squat. Hold a dumbbell vertically in front of your chest, cupping the top end in both hands. Stand with your feet hip- to shoulder-width apart.
3. Bulgarian split squat. Stand facing away from a bench, holding a pair of dumbbells at arm’s length by your sides. Place the toes of your left foot on the bench behind you.
4. Lateral lunge (or side lunge) Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart holding a pair of dumbbells at arm’s length by your sides, palms in. Keeping your right leg straight and right foot on the floor, step to the left side with your left leg, then push your hips back as you bend your left knee.
5. Glute bridge. Lie on your back, arms down by your sides. Bend your knees and plant your feet flat on the floor. Pull in through your navel to brace your core muscles and then squeeze your glutes to press your hips up so your body forms a straight line — no arching — from knees to shoulders.
6. Camel. From a kneeling position, with your butt resting on your heels and the tops of your feet on the floor, hold a heavy dumbbell at your chest with both hands.
7. Single-leg hinge with loop. Loop a resistance band around your left foot, and grip it with your right hand as you rise up to stand up straight with your feet hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent.
8. Forward lunge. Stand tall holding a pair of dumbbells at arm’s length by your sides (palms in) with your feet hip-width apart. Keeping your chest up, shoulders back, core braced (imagine someone is about to hit you in the gut), and back flat, take a large step forward with your right foot.
9. Reverse lunge. Stand with your feet hip-width apart holding a pair of dumbbells at your sides. Keeping your chest up and your core engaged, take a large step backward with your right foot.
10. Curtsy lunge. Stand with your feet hip-width apart. If you use a weight, hold it in front of your chest, as you did with the goblet squat. Keeping your back flat and your core engaged, step your left foot behind and outside your right foot, lowering your hips until your right thigh is parallel with the floor, lowering the weight as you step your left foot behind you.

1. Front Squat. LEVEL UP DIFFERENCE: Replacing back squats with front squats puts more emphasis on the quads than the glutes and will help keep your torso more upright.
2. Leg Extension. LEVEL UP DIFFERENCE: In the original Straight Up workout, leg extensions served as a pre-exhaust before squats. Here, they serve first as an easy warmup before front squats, then as an intense finisher.
3. Stepup. LEVEL UP DIFFERENCE: A close cousin of the lunge, stepups are a great exercise performed by many athletes. Stepping with one leg calls balance and function into play.
4. Single-Leg Romanian Deadlift. LEVEL UP DIFFERENCE: Any great hamstring-training program should include RDLs. Mixing in the single-leg version is good for ensuring a weaker leg doesn’t fall too far behind the stronger one.
5. Lying Leg Curl. LEVEL UP DIFFERENCE: While the variations for leg curls are limited—lying, seated, and standing are just about it—the objective is the same: Isolate the hamstrings to create size in the backs of the legs.
6. Hack Squat. LEVEL UP DIFFERENCE: Switching from a lying back leg press machine to hack squats is simply a matter of varying the stimulus on the quads, glutes, and hammies.

1. 1. Improving Force Output:Since all movement requires the application of force, this is an important consideration for all sports. 2. Improving Explosiveness (power):Since power = F x V (force x velocity), an increase in force can result in an improvement in explosiveness. 3. Improving Speed:Since a greater ability to apply force quickly (power) can result in an increased stride length. A two-inch increase in the stride will result in a one-tenth of a second decrease in the 40-yard dash time!...
2. 1. Muscles adapt to training by becoming thicker and stronger which allows them to more effectively combat strains. 2. Connective tissues (i.e. ligaments and tendons) adapt by becoming thicker and tougher which reduces the incidence and magnitude of sprains. 3. Bones adapt by becoming stronger and more resistant to trauma and fracture.

7 Tips For A Safe And Successful Strength Training Program

Just Now Health.harvard.edu Show details

1. Warm up and cool down for five to 10 minutes. Walking is a fine way to warm up; stretching is an excellent way to cool down.
2. Focus on form, not weight. Align your body correctly and move smoothly through each exercise. Poor form can prompt injuries and slow gains. When learning a strength training routine, many experts suggest starting with no weight, or very light weight.
3. Working at the right tempo helps you stay in control rather than compromise strength gains through momentum. For example, count to three while lowering a weight, hold, then count to three while raising it to the starting position.
4. Pay attention to your breathing during your workouts. Exhale as you work against resistance by lifting, pushing, or pulling; inhale as you release.
5. Keep challenging muscles by slowly increasing weight or resistance. The right weight for you differs depending on the exercise. Choose a weight that tires the targeted muscle or muscles by the last two repetitions while still allowing you to maintain good form.
6. Stick with your routine — working all the major muscles of your body two or three times a week is ideal. You can choose to do one full-body strength workout two or three times a week, or you may break your strength workout into upper- and lower-body components.
7. Give muscles time off. Strength training causes tiny tears in muscle tissue. These tears aren't harmful, but they are important: muscles grow stronger as the tears knit up.

Choose any moves you like, but begin with compound (multi-joint) and bilateral (working both sides of your body) exercises that hit your glutes, quadriceps, and hamstrings.

What is the right weight for lower-body exercises?

The right weight for lower-body exercises will be different for everyone. Use a combination of moderate to heavy weights for 3-4 sets of 6-12 reps, and light to moderate weights for 3-4 sets of 12-20 reps. Ideally, you should finish your last set of each exercise unable to perform any extra reps.
