Squats - Quick & Effective Leg and Booty Home Workout

Squats

This first exercise is a basic squat. Start by standing with your feet hip-width apart, toes pointing forward. Next, lower your hips backward as though you were sitting in a chair until your thighs are roughly parallel with the ground.

Try to keep your chest up and make sure your knees don’t go past your feet. Straighten your legs as you stand back up and squeeze your booty at the top. Perform 10-15 reps.

Modifications: If this move feels too challenging, try not to go as deep into the squat. If this move feels too easy, try adding a pulse in between each rep.

Side Lunges - Quick Beginner Full-Body Workout - No Equipment

Side Lunges

Start by standing with your feet hip-width apart. Shift to the side until the majority of your body weight rests on your right leg. Step your left leg far out to the side.

Bend your hips backward similarly to the way you do in a squat and bend your left leg until your thigh is parallel to the ground. Keep your right leg straight throughout the lunge.

Make sure your left knee doesn’t go past the toes of your left foot. Press off your left leg and return to the starting position. Repeat on the right side.

Perform 10 reps on each leg.

Modifications: If this move feels too challenging, don’t go as deep into the lunge. If this move feels too easy, try adding in a little pulse on each rep.

Calf Raises - Quick Beginner Full-Body Workout - No Equipment

Calf Raises

Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, toes facing forward. You can place your hands on your hips or just hold them at your side.

Carefully lift your heels into the air until just the balls of your feet are touching the ground. Slowly lower your heels back to the ground.

If you find yourself losing your balance, try engaging your core more or holding on to the back of a chair. Perform 15 reps.

Modifications: If this move feels too challenging, perform fewer reps. If this move feels too easy, try performing the calf raises on one leg at a time.

Wall Sit - Quick & Effective Leg and Booty Home Workout

Wall Sit

Start by standing with your back toward a wall. Lower into a squat with your back braced against the wall.

Lower down until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Your knees should be bent at a 90-degree angle with your feet directly below your knees.

Try not to use your hands to brace yourself and let your legs do the majority of the work. Perform for 30 seconds.

Modifications: If this move feels too challenging, try only lowering halfway down into the squat. If this move feels too easy, try lifting one leg in the air during each circuit.

Clamshells

Start by lying on your side with your hips and shoulders stacked. You can tuck your bottom arm under your head.

Modifications: If this move feels too challenging, perform fewer reps. If this move feels too easy, try lifting your shoulders and feet in a side crunch before performing the clamshell.

Donkey Kicks - Quick Beginner Full-Body Workout - No Equipment Donkey Kicks

Donkey Kicks

Get down on all fours with your hands directly below your shoulders and your knees directly below your hips. Maintain a 90-degree angle with your right knee as you lift your right heel towards the sky.

Curtsy Lunges - Quick & Effective Leg and Booty Home Workout

Curtsy Lunges

Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart. Shift your weight to your left leg and pick up your right foot. With your right foot, step behind you and to the left.

Bend both knees so you look almost like you’re doing a curtsy. Try to keep your chest up and your shoulders and hips facing forward.

Modifications: If this move feels too challenging, just try doing a reverse lunge. If this move feels too easy, try adding a pulse at the bottom of each lunge.

Bridges Beginner HIIT Workout No Equipment Bridges

Bridges

Start by laying on your back with your feet flat on the floor. Bend your knees until they are close to your hips and place your arms on the ground with your hands by your hips.

Pushing through your heels, lift your hips up toward the sky. Your feet and your shoulders remain on the ground. You can use your hands to help you balance.

Next, slowly lower your hips down until they touch the ground. Perform 15 reps.

Modifications: If this move feels too challenging, try only pushing up halfway. If this move feels too easy, instead of doing the full range of motion, stay lifted and do small pulses instead.

Reverse Lunges - Quick & Effective Leg and Booty Home Workout

Reverse Lunges

Start with your feet shoulder-width apart and your hands on your hips. Step back with your right leg keeping both feet pointing forward.

Bend down until your right knee almost touches the ground. You want to make sure that as you’re doing the lunge both legs create a 90-degree angle.

You don’t want your front knee extending past your toes. Also, try not to let your back knee touch the ground. Keeping it a few inches above the ground creates a better workout and also prevents your knee from getting injured.

Make sure to keep your chest and shoulders back. You want your legs to be doing the work, not your lower back.

Next, straighten both legs and step your right leg back up to your beginning stance. Perform 10 reps each leg.

Modifications: If this move feels too challenging, don’t go as deep into the lunge. If the move feels too easy, don’t alternate legs. Do the first circuit on the left leg and then switch to the right leg when you do it for the second time.

Deadlifts

Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and keep a slight bend in your knees. Next, draw your shoulders back and engage the muscles in your back and your core.

Throughout the exercise, you want to keep your back and spine straight. Then, hinge forward at the hips and reach toward the ground until your back is parallel with the ground.

Then, keeping your spine straight, lift your shoulders until you’re back to the starting position. Perform 15 reps.

Modifications: If this move feels too challenging, try only lowering your upper body halfway down. If this move feels too easy, try doing more repetitions.
