In this workout, Meredith is guiding you through a great lower body workout all seated and incorporating light weights as resistance.
If you don’t have weights on hand, you can always substitute water bottles or cans of soup as weights and still benefit from the added resistance. Just doing the range of motion movements will help as well.
Building up lower body strength is very important and we don’t always spend enough time really working these areas of the body. Legs, hips, hamstrings, calves etc all keep us stable during our day and strengthening these parts of the body will help keep us stable and firm when we do daily activities like walking, jogging, going up and down stairs and just about any other activity we do to stay mobile.
Dedicating time to exercising this area of the body is a great idea if you’re looking to add variety to your workouts. As always only do movements that you feel comfortable with and never force anything that causes you pain or discomfort.
This is a short 20min workout but always remember to keep water close by as well.
Have a great workout!
