It's time to raise your game in the legs department. The best place to start? This intense, four-move circuit that'll pound your lower body (and even your core) into rock-solid, defined muscle.

For this workout, you'll do back-to-back-to-back rounds of dumbbell overhead lunges, Bulgarian split squats, and stepups. From there, a set of abs-burning situps will ignite new muscular development in your quads, glutes, hamstrings, and calves. And by the end of this circuit, you're probably going to need to take a few minutes off your feet.


You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've finished all exercises, rest for 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 4 to 6 rounds.

Depending upon your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest period. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
