4 Strengthening Moves For Your Lower Body

Hope you’re loving your journey with the 6 Weeks To Summer Challenge! Next up: legs. These four moves incorporate pulsing, which leads to sexy definition, so it makes sense that Tash loves the sculpted shape she gets from these moves. “The girls LOVE pulsing moves,” says Katherine Greiner of KGBody, who works out with Tash and Dev. Try the moves below.

OK. Here’s what you need to know about this workout:
YOU’LL NEED A sturdy household chair, a yoga mat, and a resistance band (although FYI — we offer a modification in case you don’t have one)
DO 2 sets of 10 reps for each move.

And here are step-by-step instructions for how to do the moves!


Start with legs hip-width apart, hands on hips. Bending both knees, bring right leg behind left leg in curtsey squat. Raise right leg out to side at hip height as you straighten left. Return to a curtsey squat for 1 rep. Do 10 reps; repeat on opposite side. Do 2 sets.


Start in high lunge with left knee over left ankle and right leg extended back, hands on hips. Push off right leg, bringing knee to front of body at 90 degrees, straighten left leg to stand. Return to lunge for 1 rep. Do 10 reps; repeat on opposite side. Do 2 sets.


Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees bent. With resistance band around thighs, raise hands to fists at chest height. Step right twice, twisting torso to right, punching left arm across body. Return to start; repeat on opposite side for 1 rep. Do 2 sets of 10 reps.

Modification: Hey, it’s OK if you don’t have a resistance band. This move can be just as effective without — just make sure to maintain the squatting movement throughout to really work those quads.


Start on floor, right leg stacked on top left, left forearm resting on floor. Keeping right leg straight, tap toe in front of body, on top of left leg, behind body. Return to start for 1 rep. Do 10 reps; repeat on opposite side. Do 2 sets.
