5 minute Fitness for your Lower half


We found this interesting routine which you can do in 5 minutes which focuses on your lower half of your body especially you legs and buttocks.

For this 5 minute routine you need to go for each of the five moves as hard as you can for 50 seconds, rest for 10, and then go right into the next one. All you'll need is a pair of heavy dumbbells and sweat it out with these moves given below.

1. Glute Bridge

Raise one leg, and switch legs after 25 seconds. You can also raise your arms so they're pointing straight up or lift your toes off the ground.

2. Swing with Dumbbells

Hold the heavier-weight dumbbells as you swing your arms forward.

3. Alternating Curtsy Lunge

Hold the heavier-weight dumbbells as you lunge forward.

4. Low Sumo Squat

Hold the heavier weight as you squat.

5. Iso-Explosive Squat

Now this is the toughest one and a test for your endurance.

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Keeping your back naturally arched, lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Pause for 4 seconds. Then jump explosively as high and as fast as you can. Once your feet hit the floor, lower your body and repeat. And all this with your dumbbells.

The routine may be for 5 minutes but the magic lies in the dumbbell that you use for working out which has a great impact on the legs and lower body.
