This 20-Minute Lower-Body Strength Workout Targets Every Muscle From The Waist Down
Under Armour and ACE-certified trainer Ariel Belgrave is here to remind you to not skip leg day. With this 20-minute lower-body workout, you'll ignite your core and challenge your balance as you build lower body strength.
While this workout requires one heavy dumbbell and two medium-to-heavy dumbbells, the weight is going to vary from person to person (if you aren't sure, check out our guide on how to choose the right weight). Belgrave advises that in order to choose the dumbbells that work best for you, try to bicep curl and see how many reps you can do without leaning your full body forward. If you prefer exact numbers, Belgrave says that the medium weight can range from five to 10 pounds and the heavier weight can range from eight to 15 pounds or more.
