what’s up has fit tribe it’s your personal trainer coach Kozak and I’m Claudia and this is a leg a glutes workout the only equipment required for today’s routine is a pair of dumbbells and the weight that you choose will be completely dependent on your fitness level you will also have the opportunity to use a kettlebell during one of the movements today but that is not required follow me for the standard moves and follow me for some easier modifications if you’re ready to burn those legs out then let’s do it [Music] you [Music] let’s start by warming up our posterior chain we’re gonna get our feet a little bit wider than shoulder-width point those toes out just a little bit now let’s get a small slight bend in your knees hands together drive those hips back and then drive those hips forward swing those arms up and then down through your legs this one is really all about your hips your arms are just along for the ride and notice how we’re starting with a slight bend in our knees and then we’re keeping that bend throughout the move driving those hips back hips back hips forward squeeze those glutes at the top now we’re not gonna count any repetitions in our warm-up today so we’re just moving at a pace that you feel comfortable with and the point of this warm-up is to get your heart rate up a little bit and increase your overall body temperature loosen up these legs make sure to breathe keep your back straight on this one and again we’re just moving at a warm-up pace getting those hamstrings glutes lower back all loosened up ready for this workout let’s do this one for the last ten seconds here breathing in breathing out four five four three two one zero all right for the next one we’re gonna give a little different variation between the two I’m gonna do an overhead squat plus calf raise and I’m actually gonna do a prisoner squat plus calf raise so prisoner squat is just interlacing my fingers right behind my head here feet are shoulder width apart let’s put our weight back on our hips first and then squat down notice I’m keeping my arms up and in line with my body this one requires definitely some more mobility to achieve it correctly and properly you decide which variation is right for you again we’re just moving at a warmup pace here loosening those legs up every time we squat we break it the hips first hips go back and then bend at the knees keeping the feet flat head in line with our spine for a five four three two one and zero all right let’s get those heart rate up a little bit on this next one I’m gonna do a faux jumper up st. light and on the balls of my feet and I’m actually just gonna do a run in place so she’s doing right left and I’m doing both right left at the same time either way nice soft and light touches on the ground you decide which of these variations is right for you again going on a warm up pace we’re not trying to get too intense yep right now and save some of that for the workout oh yeah it’ll be plenty of time for that work coming up a nice big deep breath and use this warm-up as an opportunity to remind yourself what brought you here today to begin with whatever it is that motivate you it’s gonna be the key to get you through to the end of this workout when those legs are catching on fire and burning all right let’s do this one four five four three two one zero hi I’m warm I’m ready I feel ready to go it’s hot in here today I’m already sweating light shined on it okay we have a superset coming up at you we’re gonna go back and forth between a deep reverse lunge and then either a kettlebell swing or a dumbbell swing we’re gonna do three sets of each we’re gonna need dumbbells for that first deep reverse lunge two dumbbells yep and we’re gonna do three sets of 16 repetitions so eight on each leg start with your feet shoulder-width apart I’m gonna take a big deep step back and then drop that back knee come on back up and that counts as one that counts as one again good posture shoulders are back making sure to breathe in on the way down out on the way up now the point of the big deeps step and stretch is this one really engages your hamstrings and glutes more than a traditional reverse lunge again taking a big ole step back but maintaining a flat and straight back that’s halfway point good not a race on this one staying nice and under control you gotta keep them balanced if you want to make this one easier you can drop the weight altogether or just lighten it or if you need to make it harder you can increase your weight maintaining good posture and last one right here guys excellent nice work alright let’s go ahead and set those dumbbells to the side I’m gonna use one kettlebell for this next one and I’m going to use one dumbbell you decide what’s appropriate for you we’re gonna move into an either a kettlebell or dumbbell posterior swing very similar movement to the one that we started with driving those hips back and then for feet her little wider than shoulder width apart toes are pointed out I’m grabbing my kettlebell with two hands and I’m grabbing mine with two hands and just interlocking my fingers and our first move is going to be to drive those hips backwards as we hike that weight between our legs now hips forward squeeze those glutes up at the top alright let’s go ahead and get started twelve repetitions and three two one let’s hit it right back and then weight forward and this one is really all about those legs not about your upper body hips should be used as a hinge halfway point backwards and forwards keep a slight bend in your knees throughout squeeze those glutes up at the top two more almost there come on last one ah acts nice work okay so that’s one set of each and set that way down and moving on to that deep dumbbell reverse lunge grabbing both your weights we got sixteen eight on each leg going back and forth here all right beginning in three two one let’s go big deep step back good posture that’s it control the way down and the way up not a race on this one it would definitely be easier if you were to turn it into a faster movement but we want to get that time under tension just so important in these strength and muscle building workouts make sure those muscles are working we’re not just using momentum halfway point right here this one’s working your hamstrings glutes quads even your grip and just holding the dumbbells good big deep step back every time there we go no that’s stretch as you step back really hitting those hamstrings and glutes excellent almost done big deep breaths you have two more breathing in on the way down breathe out on the way up that’s one you got it and zero huh okay set those down time for some posterior swings adjust your weight if you need to but we have another 12 repetitions coming at you again starting those feet a little wider than shoulder-width apart good posture two hands on that way hips back hips forward here we’re going three two one begin really feel that stretch and your back side on every rep it’s like you’re trying to touch your glutes to the wall behind you keep your back straight head in line with your spine squeeze those glutes two more good that’s one haha whew those burn so good okay you sure do two down one to go let’s get it going right here deep reverse lunge keep that energy up stay focus has to try let’s do it and three two one begin seven back big step and back up excellent last 16 of these eight on each leg every repetitions just getting you that much closer to your goal again think about what it is that brought you here today trying to build strength build muscle lose weight or just get better at life kicking butt you’re I play Haylee activities whatever it is stay focused on it right here we’re fighting with you fighting together almost there say under control big deep steps every time three more come on that’s three right here flying through that burn right through it right here come on last one and zero actually all right let’s set this dumbbells down whether you’re using a kettle blower dumbbell the last set of the posture your swings right here for 12 repetitions feet a little wider than shoulder width all posterior chain here we go and three two one let’s get it hips back hips forward squeeze those glutes every time and again it’s all about your legs your arms are just along for the ride boom every time yeah don’t turn it into a squat make sure your hinging check those hips boom last one squeeze excellent yeah nice work all right next up we have a try set so that’s three exercises in the next circuit first we’re gonna do is going to be a goblet lateral drop squat or just a lateral drop squat right side I’m not gonna be using any weight for this one but I’m still one of Claudia’s dumbbell so I’m holding this dumbbell up top in a goblet position start with our feet together now we’re gonna jump out swing our toes out drop our weight back in our hips and pop back up you decide that holding the dumbbell or not is appropriate for you well we have 12 repetitions coming at you here and three two one dropping out fear little wider than shoulder width apart toes are pointed out absorb that weight and energy in your hips hamstrings and your glutes and then pop back up keep your back straight halfway core tight and make sure to breathe on this one we’re breathing in on the way down exhaling as you explode up two more guys almost there almost there last one make it count boom alright we need just one dumbbell for the next one we’re gonna move into a kicks and deadlift so I’m gonna go a little heavier on this one we have eight repetitions on each side those going start with that dumbbell in your left hand keep your right arm out to the side we’re going to step back with your left foot about one foot length back I’ll go on this one is gonna be to be get about 85% of your weight on this lead leg kick those hips back as you bend at the knee keeping your back straight and come up one leg deadlift so equal parts bend at the knee and hinging at the hips here we are eight each leg in three two one begin head stays in line with your spine and again that back leg is really just to help you stabilize what you should be lifting the majority of the weight with that lead leg again bending the hips and bending the knee at the same time three more good posture one right into the next right here I’ll switch it up after this last rep good okay oh that’s a good one opposite side now really isolating one leg at a time got one foot back about one foot length back and begin again bending it both the knee and hinging at the hips at the same time is the harder one to stay balanced on so just really focus on both ends of the movement both the lowering phase and that lifting phase [Music] here we go last two and here it is finished strong good okay we’re gonna need two dumbbells for the next one we’re gonna do a ISO squat plus side tap so let’s bring those dumbbells up into rack position and I’m gonna do a complete ISO squat where I bring my hips down to parallel to the ground and I am at a quarter squat now we’re stepping side to side while maintaining this position for 30 seconds yes that’s as brutal as it sounds gonna be broke here we go Dumbo’s are up getting into position and begin side to side taps cannot wait in your hips you

working those casts behind repetitions here we are in three two one begin every time get those balls of the feet off the ground by rocking back and then really driving them in forcing those calves to

moving to a Hindu a cool down so we can actually move to the floor take a nice big deep breath here as we do so do it slowly workouts over with so let’s let that heart rate start to come down yes we’re gonna get a little mobility and stretching in here legs are out in front of you back is nice and straight now we’re gonna do a seated hamstring stretch and the goal on this one is to only bend at the hips like a hinge it’s really gonna isolate those hamstrings put your hands on your hips good posture now keeping your head in line with your spine hinge forward you’re not gonna be able to get as far doing this as you would normally would and that’s okay but we really want to feel those hamstrings engage give your legs straight don’t bend hurt the knees that head in line with your spine and hold just a static stretch on this one those hamstrings took a beating today they could use a little recovery here in five four three two one zero relax good okay this next time we’re gonna perform a similar stretch but a little more of a lower back emphasis so I’m still gonna hit the hamstrings and glutes but more lower back so this time I want you to go ahead and reach and allow your body to bend and curl forward don’t pull back on your toes if you can but just keep your toes in a nice neutral position we’re gonna reach as far as you can whatever that looks like if that’s here that’s okay it’s way further than us that’s cool to make this work for you nice big relaxing deep breaths slow and controlled take a second here to be proud of what you’ve achieved so far today being fit were easy everybody be fit but they’re not that’s what makes you so special for showing up today and putting in the work four five four three two one zero come on up nice and slow all right staying in this spot but we’re gonna emphasize the calves this next time so similar move the last one but only this time go ahead and pull those toes back and keep them pulled back what you can reach and pull back more that’s great if not just pulling back towards you and reach towards them again you can go and allow your back to to curl on this one pull those toes back as far as you can keeping your knees down hold and stretch if you can reach to pull back on your toes you can go ahead and do so but it’s not required like I said you’re here that’s okay just breathe you got it a few more deep breaths feel those calves loosening up again they took a beating today as well from the calf raises to the jumps four five four three two one zero come on up all right we got one more stretch here we’re move into a sprinter quad stretch work on those thighs and quadriceps it’s going to bring one leg back so this was a bunch of different variations the easiest is going to be about in here when I’m you know I’m sitting back and let me out just a little bit but the more you pull that leg underneath you the further you lie back the harder the move is gonna get so you decide for your flexibility and where you’re at right now if you want to be more in this range or if you want to come and lie down I’m probably about right here today after that workout agree to me yeah but all these static stretches we’re trying to take it to about 85 90 percent of what we’re capable of we want to feel a good stretch but we don’t want to necessarily be inducing any pain either again nice big slow deep breaths on this one whoo I’m gonna feel this one tomorrow hope you guys are too we still appreciative that you joined us for today we know you have a lot of choices out there so means a lot to us you came to
