We’re training tonight! Try this lower body workout

Tonight’s plan is legs + core. If you haven’t gotten your lift in today, try mine and let me know what you think. We’re going heavy with squats, and adding cleans, lunges and some core work.

Power Cleans + KB Swings: 4 supersets — 4 cleans/10 two-handed swings. If you’re interested in learning more about cleans, here is a fantastic Poliquin read on the difference between power cleans and hang cleans.

Alternating DB Lunges: 4 Sets of 10 lunges per leg. 2 forward, 2 reverse.

Weighted crunches: 3×20.

Hanging leg raises: Either in straps on the bar, or lying on a bench. 3×10.

TRX (or regular) Planks: 3×60 seconds.
