Today’s 10 Minute Trainer Reviews focus is going to be on the Lower Body workout. Of course, it is based on the trademark 10 moves in 10 minutes. You will need only 2 items for this workout: a set of resistance bands and a mat. If you choose to add the 2 minute warm up and 2 minute cool down, you are looking at 14 minutes total.
In my opinion, lower body workouts are typically not so hard on me. My lower body muscles are the strongest muscle group I have, therefore they are the largest. This is usually the case for most people. I’m not saying that I don’t get tired or sore, but it’s not nearly as bad as upper body. My upper body muscles, most especially my shoulders and chest, stay so sore for days on end after a good, hard workout.
Ok, here is the line-up for the 10 Minute Trainer Lower Body workout, like many others before, these names are fairly easy to figure out:
Move #1: 3 Part Squats
Move #2: Alternate Lunges
Move #3: Front Knee Front Kick
Move #4: In Out Hop Squats
Move #5: Pendulum
Move #6: 3 Way Jockey Squats
Move #7: Side Lunge Side Kick
Move #8: Tip Toe Squats
Move #9: Band Hip Raise (you’ll need your resistance band for this one)
Move #10: 4 Direction Iso Lunge (you’ll need your bands for this one as well)
That’s it. I think that is my favorite thing about the 10 Minute Trainer series, what you see is what you get. It’s all wrapped up in a nice, neat little package. It’s simple, beautiful, but challenging. You can modify all of these workouts to make them as easy or as hard as you want. This particular workout is the last one I chose to review in the 10 Minute Trainer series. There are still several more to come that are included in the 10 Minute Trainer Upgrade series. I will be writing bits and pieces on these in the days to come. My very next write-up in the 10 Minute Trainer Reviews will be about the “Getting Started” schedule that is included in your 10 Minute Trainer package.
Thanks for checking in with us, I hope you enjoy reading these reviews as much as I like writing them. 🙂 Come back in a day or 2 for the next one! Remember, it’s only 10 minutes….. 🙂
