Quick GLUTE + Leg Circuit to Get Your Heart and Muscles Pounding in a Short Time

I only had 30 minutes at the gym but I wanted a good sweat. Reducing rest time and maintaining good intensity at each rep got me puffing and glistening by the end. I focused on my lower body because that’s where the largest muscles are. By using the largest muscles, I get a more effective burn (ie. better workout). Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Quick GLUTE + Leg Circuit to Get Your Heart and Muscles Pounding in a Short Time

Targets: legs, glutes, core, stabilizer muscles, balance and cardio

4-6 rounds
12-15 reps per exercise
For the single leg exercises: Focus on one leg per round. Then switch to the other leg on the following round. This increases the load on the leg, making it work harder.

Round 1

  1. Box Jump
  2. Overhead Reverse Lunge (L standing)
  3. Single Leg Deadlift (L standing)

Round 2

  1. Box Jump (alternate step down leg)
  2. Overhead Reverse Lunge (R standing)
  3. Single Leg Deadlift (R standing)

If you find doing two exercises back to back on the same leg is too challenging, alternate left and right legs, as outlined below:

  1. Box Jump (alternate step down leg)
  2. Overhead Reverse Lunge
    1. L standing
    2. R standing
  3. Single Leg Deadlift
    1. L standing
    2. R standing

 

Have fun with it!
