5-4-3-2-1 Total Body Blast Workout (strength, cardio and stretching)

This red, white and blue workout is my attempt at making exercise patriotic in honor of America’s birthday this week.

Can you see the firework bursting in the background? It’s how your muscles will feel (i.e. ready to burst) after doing strength training, cardio and stretching in under an hour.

‘Murica. 😉

Questions:

  1. How are you celebrating the Fourth of July?
  2. Do you work out on holidays? (I typically take the day off to spend time with family and friends.)

If you’re looking for a workout that will increase your lower body strength, you’ve come to the right place.

This combination of basic lower body exercises will blast your muscles with heavy weight and a low number of reps, which is the perfect recipe for building lean muscle.

This workout, which uses free weights and machines, targets both large and small muscle groups in your lower body. It’s a good workout for runners or people who are looking to improve their overall fitness.

Ladies – I know you might be afraid to lift heavy, but you need to do so if you want to build muscle. You can’t keep lifting light weights rep after rep for days on end and expect to see results. If you can do five reps with heavy weight and it doesn’t completely exhaust your muscles, increase the weight. You might find that you’re stronger than you think!

On that note, if you’ve never lifted heavy before, I STRONGLY encourage you to ask a certified fitness professional to check your form. You can also watch the video demonstrations for each exercise below.

Let me know if you give the workout a try. I’d love to know what you think! 🙂

Questions:

  1. How often do you perform workouts with heavy weights and low reps?
  2. How often do you complete a lower body workout?
