Section 2: Lower Body Workouts at Kingdom FIT

Warm-up: Always begin with a dynamic warm-up to increase blood flow and prepare your muscles for exercise. Examples include leg swings, hip circles, and light jogging.

Squats:

  • Standard Squats: Stand with feet hip-width apart, lower your body as if sitting back into a chair, and rise back up. Perform 3 sets of 10-12 reps.

  • Goblet Squats: Hold a dumbbell or kettlebell close to your chest while performing squats for added resistance.

Lunges:

  • Forward Lunges: Step one foot forward and lower your body, making sure both knees are at 90-degree angles. Alternate legs and do 3 sets of 10-12 reps.

  • Reverse Lunges: Step one foot back and lower your body into a lunge position. Alternate legs and repeat.

Deadlifts:

  • Romanian Deadlifts: Hold a barbell with an overhand grip and slightly bend your knees. Lower the barbell towards your feet, keeping your back straight and rise back up. Perform 3 sets of 8-10 reps.

Leg Press:

  • Using the leg press machine, push the weight away from your body using your legs and return to the starting position. Aim for 3 sets of 10-12 reps.

Calf Raises:

  • Use a calf raise machine or perform standing calf raises with dumbbells. Do 3 sets of 15-20 reps.


Section 3: Incorporating Cardio and Core Work

  1. Cardiovascular Exercise: Include 20-30 minutes of cardio, such as running, cycling, or using the elliptical, 3-4 times a week to burn extra calories and improve overall fitness.

  2. Core Strengthening: A strong core complements your lower body strength. Add exercises like planks, Russian twists, and bicycle crunches to your routine.

Section 4: Recovery and Nutrition

  1. Rest Days: Allow your body time to recover and repair. Rest days are essential for preventing injuries and maximizing progress.

  2. Proper Nutrition: Fuel your body with a balanced diet of lean proteins, complex carbs, healthy fats, and plenty of fruits and vegetables.
