For this week’s workout, try this lower body circuit and burn out your quads, hamstrings, glutes and calves.

Want to increase the intensity? Add a pair of dumbbells or complete four rounds of the circuit instead of three.

Don’t forget to include a proper warmup and cooldown as part of your routine.

Warmup: Before you begin the circuit, take five minutes to get your heart rate elevated and muscles warm. This includes a light jog and dynamic stretches.

Cooldown: After you complete the workout, take five minutes to safely lower your heart rate. This can include a slow walk and stretching all of the muscles in your lower body.

Perform each move for 45 seconds, then rest for  15 seconds. Complete the circuit three times.
