#FatblasterFriday | Hi-Lo LEGS Workout!

Want to sculpt muscle, burn fat and engage your core simultaneously? (Rhetorical question, right?)

WORK YOUR LEGS!ย Together, your glutes, hamstrings and quads are your body’s powerhouse.

Lots of big muscles moving = lots of calories burned.

Today’s #FatblasterFriday is a Hi-Lo Legs workout.ย Only 6 exercises; 3 low impact moves (but don’t confuse ‘low’ with ‘easy’…), 3 high impact (or plyometric) moves, 15 reps each (or 15 repetitions per leg, where appropriate), 2 rounds and you’re done.

The entire workout can be done without equipment (body weight only), but for a little extra challenge I’d suggest a single dumbbell (5-15 pounds). No dumbbells around (make whatever joke you’d like now..)? Substitute a medball, telephone book or milk jug.

I used my new Ugi ball (isn’t it pretty?).

Let’s rock and roll!

Have you ever tried a Ugi ball before?

Do you hate leg workouts as much as me? (Hint, the things we dislike the most are usually those we most need to do…)

    and some ugi.
    I was fortunate to go to fitbloggin last year sponsored by them—and they rock, the UGI BALL ROCKS, and my legs and core thank them.

    • How often do you Ugi Carla?
      I can see using it as one of the tools in my daily workout, but perhaps not as THE tool…

  2. Oh squat jumps, you slay me. I used to hate lower body workouts but now kind of love them. OK maybe not love but at least appreciate them. And I’ve been dying to try an Ugi ball!! Can’t wait for your review!

    • Me too. When you watch, you’ll see that I totally tank on the 2nd set of plyos. Decided not to edit it out. Perhaps somebody else will find it as difficult as I did!

  3. Hooray! Thank you for doing a legs workout! Can’t wait to try this out. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great weekend!

    • You’re welcome (hope you’re still thanking me when you’re done…). And enjoy your weekend too!

    Good to see you are back in action after a period of vein unwell. Best wishes to you/ your family leading into Halloween and Xmas-Thanksgiving period!

    • Thanks Laura! I still have my ‘off’ days, but keep plugging away at it!
      Have a happy Halloween yourself!

  5. This looks great and it is in the lineup for Saturday. Thanks. I do like leg work but not so much split lunge JUMPS ! But I will do them.

    Thanks Tamara. Keep up the great work and I will keep trying to keep up!

    • Most excellent. By the way, it was the split lunge jumps that KILLED me! Love to hate ’em!

  6. I AM EXHAUSTED!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ GREAT workout Tamara! Love it! I can’t afford the Ugi even with the discount but maybe one day after I am working again! ๐Ÿ™‚ YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nice butt kiddo! I am married so I can say that. Arms look amazing too!

  7. I can always use leg workouts! That is definitely the area I slack the most, since I like to think running works my legs, but I know I need to balance it with the other muscles. Pinning!

    • I teach a lot of step classes and like to fool myself into thinking that they’re leg work. Not really though. Thanks for commenting and pinning Laura!

  8. I’ve never stepped on a UGI ball b4!

    I like working out my hamstrings and calves…Squats is another story lol

    • They are fun (mainly ’cause they’re so different!).
      I don’t work my calves; step class is probably enough. But always with the squats and lunges!

  9. I love leg workouts! I already use several of the moves you shared ๐Ÿ™‚ Pinning!
