Feel the Lower-Body Burn With This Quick Circuit Workout

By , Jessica Smith, Certified Personal Trainer
Love it or hate it, leg day or at least spending time flexing those leg muscles is a must for any strength training schedule. Lucky for you, you can get in a mile's worth of steps and a solid all-over leg burn in just 15 quick minutes.

This multi-tasking workout session combines circuits of lower-body-focused strength training with walking-based moves. Squats, lunges and leg raises all make an appearance as you work your quads, calves, glutes and more. With just a little bit of space and a set of light dumbbells, you can do this low-impact routine anytime, rain or shine. Ready to get on the path to sculpted calves and stronger quads?

To challenge a different set of muscles, be sure to check out the one-mile, upper-body circuit walk here

WooHoo, awesome blog!!! Report
Great workout. Report
This remains a favorite, which I do frequently, though I switch days matching or mirroring the sides, since the counts aren't quite even. One thing I really like is Jessica stressing it's OK to modify and go with the level that works best for you, even backing off to a less intense version for herself. Good safety tips--thank you!

Excellent workout... thank you for sharing workout suggestions. Always love these posts! Report
thank you Report
One of my favorite Jessica workouts. I've been slowly adding weight with my adjustable weight set, and I use different weights for different moves--less weight where joint strain is a concern. I also alternate matching sides or doing the opposite, since the counts aren't exactly even. Report
Thank you! Report
Awesome workout Report
Looking for low impact fitness now that I no longer have a pool to do my fitness exercises in. Will have to give this a try. Just need to figure out how to add these exercises / videos to my fitness log. Report

As far as tracking, I just put in the minutes as aerobics, even though there is the ST aspect, but then I'm not messing with reps & weights, but just time. Report
This is a good workout. More challenging than I thought! Report
I Like Jessica Smith's workouts too. How would they set it up on the Sparkpeople's fitness tracker. Report
