At Home Workouts: Legs & Glutes

at home workouts new jersey

While gyms are to remain closed until further notice to help minimize the spread of COVID-19, that doesn’t mean you can’t get a great workout in at home! Regularly exercising is an amazing way to keep your immune system strong. Here are some great options to consider for working out your glutes and legs at home!

Glute Bridges: Glute bridges are extremely versatile. Not only can these be a killer exercise for your booty, but it also can serve as a hip flexor stretch! All you need is your bodyweight and the floor. Here’s how to do it: First, bend your knees and keep them hip-width apart (or slightly wider). Keep your feet in line with your knees. Use your core to lift your hips up. Make sure you keep your shoulder blades on the floor. Then, lower your hips down slowly, using your core to maintain stability until you’re back onto the floor. Repeat!

Squats: Jump squats, air squats, sumo squats, weighted squats – you name it! Squats are an awesome workout. Remember, for a perfect form squat, you need to keep your core engaged, knees aligned with your ankles and your back straight!

Low Impact Step Ups: You can use your stairs for these, a durable box or bench (just make sure it’s stable)! Step ups help improve balance and stabilization while increasing your strength. If you’re looking for a deeper workout, hold some weights in your hands. Don’t have weights? Use gallons of water or something similar!
