Week 2 #STEPtember leg workout
Here's another great leg workout that doesn't require a gym, just you and your body weight. I hope you enjoy it;
Lunge criss cross
Stand with feet hip-width apart, elbows bent hands clasped in front of chest. Cross right leg behind left, stepping right foot out to left, and then bend both knees to curtsy (approx. 90 degrees). Return to start and switch legs and complete for 30 secs x 4 sets
Lunge jump squats
Begin in a lunge stance position with one foot forward with the knee bent, and the rear knee nearly touching the ground. Ensure that the front knee is over the middle of the foot. Extending through both legs, jump as high as possible, swinging your arms to gain lift. Jump as high as you can, switch the position of your legs, moving your front leg to the back and the rear leg to the front. As you land, absorb the impact through the legs by adopting the lunge position, and do this for 30 secs x 4 sets.
Stand with your legs together and hands by your waist. Move your knees in a circular motion as you breathe normally. Do this both in clockwise and anti 30 secs x 4 sets.
Don't forget to take MORE steps in September! Go for a walk during your lunch break, park the car further away from where you normally park or hey! catch public transport and walk to wherever you are going! Whatever you can build in your day, even if it means taking the stairs instead of the lift.
