SHRED  AT HOME. You guys... Shred week 1 Legs + Glutes KILLED. The 12 week challenge is already off to a great start (and it’s not too late to join!!)  . Swipe to see the full circuit plus some modifications for the jumping moves! . Glute Bridge: 20 reps  Box Squats: 20 reps Jumping Lunges: 10 reps each side (modifications available)  Jump Turns: 5 reps each way (modifications available) . Notice in the jump turns how I jump turning to the left and also to the right. It’s really important to alternate jumping each way because if you only jump to the left, you’re teaching your body to strength the muscle only on one side of your body. While jumping and twisting to one side might feel a little awkward (for me it’s turning to the right) it’s important to do so so you don’t create an imbalance between both sides. Same thing with the jumping lunges and modifications - don’t forget to repeat on the opposite side!  . Repeat this circuit 3x! This is one of three circuits in a complete Shred @fitbodyapp workout  #fitbodyapp #fitbody2019 . Get 25% off and 1 month of @fitbodyapp FREE for a limited time.

Take a cue from Victoria's video (prepare for puppy cameos) and follow along the next time you're looking for a quick leg-sculpting sweat sesh. Repeat the circuit three times for maximum results. 

Glute Bridge

Using a chair, form a bridge position with your shoulders resting on the edge of the seat, feet on the floor hip-width apart, and hips in line with knees (parallel to the floor). Lower your hips toward the floor, then press into feet to lift hips and return to start. Make sure you're bending at the hips and not arching your back to lower down. Do 20 reps. (P.S. Eventually you could progress by adding weight to this movement such as with a barbell hip thrust.)

Box Squat

Stand a few steps in front of your chair with feet slightly wider than hip-width apart. Hinge at the hips and knees to lower into a squat until your glutes tap the top of the chair. Without actually putting any weight onto the chair, press into feet to stand up and return to starting position. Do 20 reps.

Jumping Lunge

Start in a lunge position with one leg in front, and lower until both knees form 90-degree angles. Jump up and switch legs, landing softly with the other foot in front, and immediately lowering into a lunge. To modify, Victoria recommends starting in a lunge position and doing small jumps without switching legs. Do 10 reps per side.

Jump Turn

Squat with feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, butt back, chest up, and hands clasped in front of chest. Jump, extending through your hips, knees, and ankles while turning 180 degrees in the air to land in a squat facing the opposite direction. Jump again, turning in the opposite direction to return to starting position. Do 5 reps in each direction.

"Notice in the jump turns how I jump turning to the left and also to the right," Victoria shared alongside the video. "It's really important to alternate jumping each way, because if you only jump to the left, you're teaching your body to strengthen the muscle only on one side of your body. While jumping and twisting to one side might feel a little awkward (for me it's turning to the right) it's important to do so, so you don't create an imbalance between both sides."
