Home Gym Workout #4: Co-Ed Bodyweight Leg Workout; Part 1
This Medium-to-High Intensity Bodyweight & Resistance Band Leg Workout Combo (Part 1) is a short exercise sequence which can be done as a mini-workout or combined with other lower body, core/abs and/or upper body exercises for a longer training session or a total-body workout.
It’s a Co-Ed Workout, so men or women can get busy with this – AS LONG AS YOU ARE CLEARED FOR EXERCISE BY YOUR DOCTOR
You’ll notice the training principle of Asymmetrical Variance (AV) throughout this whole leg workout. While one leg is doing one thing – the other leg is doing another.
This natural movement pattern provides the targeted muscles with a greater degree of stimulation in a shorter period of time – with much less wear and tear on the body and reduced risk of injury.
Here are the 5 leg exercises featured in this home gym exercise video:
1 – Slow Step-Downs
2 – Slow Side Step-Downs
3 – Slow Step-Downs with Band Resistance (low anchor)
4 – Lunge with Back Leg Elevated (there are other names for this)
5 – Single Leg Squat with Band Resistance (low anchor)
Bodyweight Leg Workout; Part 1
You may have noticed, I do this leg workout barefoot (just socks). This makes each exercise more challenging, as balance becomes a much bigger factor. Becasue of this – there is a higher level of muscle fiber activation and stimulation.
If you do try it you’ll also notice you’ll need to ‘focus’ a bit more throughout the workout. NOTE: It’s a good idea to master this with sneakers first, before trying it barefoot.
Workouts on The Atlas Home Gym System allow you to take total advantage of the muscle stimulating effects created by the synergistic combination of: Form, Tempo and Sequence in your workout programs.
This is in addition to the unique feature of Asymmetrical Variance which is a natural component of the Atlas Home Gym… So your results are experienced in the shortest amount of time – with maximum safety and minimal risk of injury as compared to more punishing methods of mainstream exercise and fitness training.
An exercise program focused on bodyweight exercise principles guides the human body toward it’s best potential in a natural way – as opposed to the grinding “wear and tear” methods of typical weight-lifting and uncomfortable isolation-type gym machines that are crammed into typical fitness centers and health clubs.
