2/5 of my leg exercises today! I actually did research for my physics project at the gym today, so the thing you see me standing on in the first video is a force sensor (the other thing I’m standing on is a weight to even out my stance) •Video 1: Plié squats- plié squats are my favorite kind of squat because they work pretty much every part of your leg. By squatting in a widened plié position, you work not just your booty, hams, and quads, but also your inner and outer thighs. They’re also good if you have knee problems like me. These are a lot easier on my knees for some reason, so I prefer them over regular squats. I do these weighted and it always leaves me sooo sore the next day! I’m using a 25lb dumbbell in this video. When doing these, make sure to keep your hips tucked in underneath you instead of sticking them out. This ensures that you work your inner thighs, and helps protect your lower back. And squat down until you’re parallel with the floor for it to really work!! •One legged lunges: I have a hugee love/hate relationship with this exercise. On one hand, it reallyyy works, and leaves me so sore and builds my quads SO well, but on the other hand it is just such a bitch to do and tires me out so quickly 😩😩 but they DO work! I’m doing these with two 20lb dumbbells in this video. When doing this exercise, make sure to keep your knee over or even a little behind your toes, never over. Balance is a big issue with this exercise, so go slow if you have to!
Congrats if you made it this far! 😂 let me know if you like the videos! Should I post more in the future?
