Freshman 15 Fitness: Lower Body

By Maria Hartung

Today, we’re bringing you part 2 of our 3-part Freshman 15 Fitness Series. Today, we’re working out the largest muscle group; oh yes, it’s leg day! There’s no equipment necessary so you can do this workout in your dorm, apartment, outside, or even at your favorite gym. Grab plenty of water and get moving!

List of moves and tips:

1. Standard Squats

2. Jump Squats

    • For squats: Keep chest upright and try to bend knees at a 90º angle. Inhale while going down into the squat position and exhale while coming up.

3. Reverse Lunges

4. Standard Lunges

    • For lunges: Try to touch your knee to the floor with both lunges but if you can’t quite make it, get as close to the floor as possible without injury. Continue to work your way down to the floor with each workout.

5. Wall Sits

    • For Wall Sits: Keep your knees at a 90º angle and your shoulders against the wall.

Complete 15-20 reps of each exercise to get the best results for your H3 Leg Day! See each move below:
