Get ready to get some screaming and burning muscles with this quick squat challenge – lower body workout. With the variety of squats that you’ll be doing in this workout it is way more effective than just doing regular squats over and over again.
Although this workout is short, it sure will leave you with some very sore muscles! Since it is a short workout you can either do it before or after another workout, such as HIIT or cardio. Or you can even do it twice through, if you dare! Even if you just do this workout on it’s own, it’s still way better than not working out at all. If you don’t have weights, try and be a little creative. Use water bottles or just anything that will add some resistance. This will make the workout more effective by building muscle mass and toning faster and it will help burn more calories.
I love strength training and I love HIIT workouts. They both have a bunch of benefits and when they’re combined together it’s even better. HIIT is the fastest way to lose weight, tone your body, and build endurance. You even get the benefit of a continuing calorie burn up to 72 hours after you’ve completed your workout. Cardio is not the only good thing for losing weight. In fact steady-state cardio wouldn’t do you much good if you’re trying to lose weight. HIIT and strength training are much more effective than steady-state cardio. And yes strength training does help you lose weight – for good and is very effective in maintaining weight. It doesn’t just build lean muscle, it’s actually really good for fighting and even reversing arthritis. It helps you stay lean and toned. The list of the benefits goes on and on.
This short squat challenge workout will definitely help building muscle and toning your butt and thighs. The structure I’ve done it in is 3 groups, each group containing 3 exercises.
