Legs & Booty Workout // No Equipment

Legs & Booty Workout // No Equipment is a burnout workout! Heather Robertson fries your lower body without anything but a mat. Some parts of the workout were more painful than others, but the end result was the same–fried glutes and legs! This workout is made up of 3 circuits. Each exercise in the circuits is done for 30 seconds with no rest/recoveries–just one exercise after the other. You do get a much needed 30 second rest between circuits. There is a timer in the lower right hand side of the screen, counting down each 30 second interval. When there is about 5 seconds left a video appears in the upper right hand corner of the screen, previewing the next exercise.

Circuit 2 is the worst offender for burnout. You do every exercise on one leg before repeating them all on the other leg. Not only is the working leg screaming for mercy by the end, but it feels like it is still working to hold you up while you are working the other leg! This is an excellent body weight lower body workout. And there are no repeated exercises (unless you are repeating an exercise on the other side of the body), which keeps things interesting. It’s not a big calorie burner but mat work never is. Heather gives you a long and welcome stretch at the end. And if this actually too easy for you–add ankle weights and/or a booty band.
