Legs, Bums and Box: The Complete Workout
Summer is upon us and for many people that means a sunny beach holiday. If you want to join a gym and feel confident this summer, there’s still time – just check out our latest workout guide for Legs, Bums and Box that you can either do in one of our classes or in our studio at your own pace.
We’re all about body positivity at Absolutely Fitness and helping you feel good is our goal. So, if you want the perfect fat blasting and toning HIIT workout, why not try our Legs, Bums and Box exercise class.
Below are our favourite staple exercises to tone your legs, bums, tums and arms, and typical exercises you can expect in one of our classes. As with any exercises, beginners should start off without any weights and only introduce them when ready. Before exercising make sure you warm up to help prevent muscle injuries and remember to cool down too with some stretches afterwards. If you have any questions just speak to one of our amazing Fitness Gurus and they’ll help you out.
Legs – Lunges:
Stand with your right leg forward and your left leg back, in a split stance. Your toes should all be pointing forward, and place your hands on your hips. Bend your knees in a controlled manner, lowering yourself until the knee of your back leg is nearly touching the floor. When you lunge, your knees should nearly be at a right-angle, and make sure you keep your back straight and upright throughout. Hold the position for two seconds before pushing back up with your feet, returning to the starting position. Once you have finished your repetitions, swap your leg positions and repeat the exercise.
For this exercise, aim to complete one set of 15 repetitions for each leg.
Bums – Squats:
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms stretched out in front of you to begin. Then, bend your knees until your thighs are parallel to the floor. When you squat your knees should nearly be at a right-angle and make sure you keep your back straight throughout and look straight ahead. Hold the position for two seconds before pushing back up with your feet, returning to the starting position.
For this exercise, aim to complete two sets of 15 repetitions.
Box – Punch Bags and Pads:
Boxing is so much fun, and a great way to burn fat. You can either work with a punch bag or with pads, jabbing, hooking and upper-cutting your way to fitness. Work on different combinations of left and right punches as you build up your skills and become stronger.
We love boxing because not only is it exciting, it’s a great way to improve your cardiovascular health, hand-eye coordination and mental health all at the same time!
Depending on which Absolutely Fitness gym you join, the classes will vary to mix it up and keep it exciting, but you can be sure that you will leave the class feeling energised and fit.
We aim to make everyone feel part of a community at our gyms, so why not book into a class today and experience our classes for yourself.
