Hi. I'm Cindy Whitmarsh. I'm gonna show you a lower body exercise that works your entire lower body, your calves, your quads, hamstrings and gluts. Are you ready? All you need is one dumbbell, medium size. Okay. I want you to take your legs out, turn your knees out over your toes. Keep them kind of wide. Drop the weight down the center, pull your shoulders back so you're gonna drop down in the center. Hold it here. Lift your right heel up. That works your calf, put it down, stand back up. Good. Let's go down again. So you wanna go down to the center as far as you can, opposite calf up. Bring it down, stand back up. Let's do that a little quicker. Here we go. So you're gonna go down, lift, raise up. Again. Down heel up, excellent. So as you go down, you're working your quads, calves, nice. Now gluts. Good. So you're gonna go down. See how those works the entire lower body. Isn't that great? Abs are nice and tight. Excellent. Push. Alright. This is one of my favorites. Squeezing your gluts as you lift up with a pelvic tilt right there. Down, lift, good. Make sure you keep your shoulders back. We're gonna work on our posture by doing that. Excellent. And up, down, lift. If you do this every other day, you're gonna see results in a week. I promise. Good. Down, lift up. Again. Squeeze, good. Think about your inner thigh too as you come up. Good. Abs tight. Again, lift up, one more time. Excellent. Come on up. Slide your feet in, take your right leg forth, we're gonna stretch that out. You feel that in your hamstring and gluts. Round it up. Switch sides. Dig that heel in, stretch it out, round it up all the way up. Great job on your lower body exercise. I'm Cindy Whitmarsh. Thanks for working out with me in the Exercise TV.
