Here is a great work out to hit those thighs & bum that I did with my client today.
You will be doing a walking lunge with a squat once you have completed a lunge on each leg.
Select a set of dumbbells that you can manage a range of 10 – 12, but make sure it is a challenging 10 – 12 repetitions.
Start by taking a deep lunge position, take your body down until you have a around a 90 degree angel at the knee, then make sure you push up through the ball of your foot, not your toes as this will activate more of the glute & hamstring area.
Keep your upper body upright at all times.
Complete a repetition on each leg, stop then do a squat, again with a full range of movement.
Repeat this until you have completed 10 – 12 repetitions on each.
Try sets 3 of 10 – 12 repetitions.
My client found it extremely challenging, not only will hit the thighs & bum area but will also dramatically raise your heart rate, which makes it a great fat burning exercise too.
