i lift 20 minute leg workout purelytwins

Where did the weekend go? We missed having a 3-day weekend. Even though we work for ourselves it is still nice to have a 3-day weekend. Speaking of days off we have a family vacation coming up that we are super excited about. Although we are sad to miss Blend this year as we had a blast last year getting to hang out with our dear blogging friends.

Even though the weekend went by fast we managed to squeeze in a lot of work. When we head out of town we try to get ahead on  projects that deal with our blog and online personal training business. Any other bloggers out there try to prep ahead when you know you are going out of town?

Today’s purely training workout has nothing to do with traveling or leaving town. What it does focus on is LEGS! And lifting heavy! We’ve been incorporating heavier weights in our home workouts for a few years now and love it. We don’t always lift heavy but when we do we really enjoy it. We hope you like this lower body weight workout.

I LIFT 20 minute interval leg home workout.

Grab your Gymboss Interval Timer to set your intervals for this workout and your weights!

Equipment: kettlebell, sandbag or free weights

Style of workout: interval training

Workout focus: Lower body

Get yourself ready to do some donkey kicks!  Even though this workout is 20 minutes – promise it goes by fast! You will feel amazing afterwards and you’ll be a calorie burning machine all day.  If you don’t have weights we suggest grabbing something heavy in your house that you can pick up 🙂

And this workout is pregnancy safe. Lori is in her 2nd trimester and used the same weight she did prior to pregnancy. Listen to your body and reduce the weights or time if needed.

Here is the workout breakdown.

Don’t forget to PIN this workout to try this week and come back to let us know how you liked it!

We suggest for different fitness levels:

B-fits (beginner peeps) – Set Gymboss Interval Timer to 10 rounds of 10 and 50. Take breaks when needed. Try to challenge yourself and pick a heavier weight than you are used to. Omit the jumping in the lateral jumps.

A-fits (advanced peeps) – Lift heavy. Limit your breaks.

FIT moms (pregnancy recommendations) – Do the modifications mentioned in the video.  Follow along with Lori. Do not lift too heavy. Pick a moderate to light weight, especially if you are new to working out. Don’t go too deep in the squat. Can do just donkey kicks with no jump.

Go warm-up and come workout with us.

*disclaimer: make sure to consult with your doctor before trying anything new with your workout routine.

You ladies will definitely be missed this weekend but I hope you have a fun weekend! I was hoping to get ahead last weekend but it was a busy weekend and that didn’t happen so I’m hoping to get ahead these next couple days.

Thank you!!! Lately my HIITs have been no more than 15 mins and I’ve been thinking of adding more time, so this is perfect

Rocked out this workout this morning and can honestly say it was fun but intense. My legs were burning in the lateral jumps and the sweat was just flowing. Thank goodness for cold showers or I would still be a hot mess!

Thanks for the workout ladies – travel safe 🙂

so happy to hear it Susan, great job with sticking through it!! yay for cold showers 😉

Looking great ladies! The kettle ball swing looks fun. Plus the donkey kick into squat is really working my leg muscles. Thanks for this. Will look forward to the next.
