At Home Lower Body Strength Workout - Dumbbell Workout for Butt and Thighs

132

This is a slightly shorter workout than we would typically do for a strength routine but we have built it that way so it can be used in a few different ways.  So it can either be used as a standalone workout that is done exactly as we lay it out in the video and that will get you a nice bit of soreness for the next day. However if you want to be really aggressive in building strength/muscle in your legs then you can either add another lower body workout on to this one to really mix things up or you can just repeat this video over again basically doing a second set of all of these exercises. Either way you do it this is a great workout for the lower body that targets multiple muscle groups in different ways to get really well rounded strength development.



If you want to focus on toning more than strength decrease the amount of weight you lift add more repetitions (14-18) and do the repetitions more quickly than we show in the video. (just be warned that you may need to hit pause a few times to allow enough time to get all of your reps done.) On the other hand if you want more muscle development then cut your reps down a bit more (6-8 reps each) add more weight and more a bit more slowly. If you try the move slowly enough that it takes you the same time to do 6 repetitions as it does us to do our 10 then you will get a really good amount of muscle tear to help build those muscles up more quickly.

If you want to couple this routine with a HIIT workout we suggest doing the the HIIT video you selected first and then do this routine. If you do it the other way around then your legs will be too tired to get much out of the HIIT.  As an added bonus doing the HIIT first will actually cause your muscles to tear more easily allowing you to get more strength building benefit out of less weight being lifted.
