Working that lower body is sooo super important! This is literally the engine that keeps up moving throughout the day, being able to lift that heavy stuff (like kids), and being about to get from point A to B when there is chaos in the house (can I say spill?).
I have heard…”you cannot get an effective leg workout outside of a gym” but I am here to prove that completely wrong.
For me (and a lot of other mamas), I am looking for a quick (talking under 30 minute), highly effective, “don’t have to drag out a bunch of equipment” kind of workout. Once that doesn’t make my brain hurt, isn’t complicated, leaves my legs shaking, and can be one that I can do in a small space.
Introducing the ALL Standing Leg Home Workout that is all about focusing on the complete leg (i.e. thigh, booty, even down to those calves).
This all-standing home leg workout can be done in a very small space with limited equipment. Go grab your resistance band, weights, and a comfortable spot on the floor.

There is zero need for all the fancy workout gear. This workout takes a resistance band, weights, and a comfortable spot on the floor only.Resistance BandAmazon LinkMatAmazon LinkWeightsAmazon Link
For your weights, shop around for discounted prices. Facebook marketplace and Craigslist are two really good options to find weights that is perfect for your space. I am pretty sure that I don’t have anything that matches but it was all on the cheap and works beautifully.
The Amazon Link for the weights are the ones that I do like and recommend the most for those that have smaller hands. Sometimes the dumbbells are so hard to hold with the thicker middle piece and these completely solve that problem.

Where did you get that outfit?
Oh…you already know! This top and sports bra are all from Old Navy. Check them out here.
Old Navy has been my staple go-to for activewear. Talking tons of different options, colors, and sizes. Real clothes for real shaped women. Plus they last forever, wash well, and won’t empty your wallet.
If you are looking for leggings…highly recommend checking out their Elevate Powersoft line for leggings. This is hands down my absolute favorite leggings. Super soft, just the right amount of compression and they have pockets!
My shorts are from Amazon and can be found HERE. If you are looking for a pair that won’t ride up into your lady parts, this is a really good option. Plus they have pockets!
Wrapping this one up!

Home workouts are the silver lining to this whole crazy year! When COVD rolled in like a giant hurricane, our usual routines completely fell apart in one quick quarantine ruling. Who knew that our own family rooms would become the next “hot” spot for working out?
Missing a workout buddy? Did you know this entire workout was done by a zoom call with other ladies just like you? Each week, we come together for a 30 minute or less workout but from our own homes.
