At-Home five minute Leg Workout!

Another Washington DC Snow Storm Have You At Home?

Get in a fast leg workout before shoveling snow!

You can try to do four rounds of the following:

5 Reverse Sliding Lunge on each Leg
This video has them using a towel to slide the leg backwards, but you can order a set of Gliders for carpet or hardwood for about $15.

5 Pistol Squats on each Leg
Starting from :45 is the tutorial on how to stand up on one leg from a chair, but feel free to go through as many p[progressions as you feel comfortable.

10 Box Squats or Squat to BOSU Dome 
The box squat can be done on a bench, couch, or whatever you can find around the house.

The Squat to BOSU Dome is an excellent progression that really works your abs and hip flexors more than the the box squat. You can learn more about the BOSU Balance Trainer here 

Stay Warm and Stay Active! Spring Is Just around the Corner!
