Hi, I'm Chris with Live Fit Personal Training out of Kansas City, and today I'm going to show you two leg exercises specifically for the lower legs, but also incorporating the upper legs. First one is a squat to toe raise. You're going to take your hands on your hips, squat down deep, stand up, extend the hips and come up to the toes; nice and high. Back down, so on the squat portion of this, you're working your gluts, hamstrings, thighs and hips and on the toe raise, you're working on the calves and the shin muscles. You're going to do about 10 to 20 reps, two to three sets. And if it's too easy, you can add dumbbells for weight. Okay, go rest. The next exercise is a split stance lunge jump. It's great for balance and it also works every muscle in the legs. You're going to start by split stance, lunge down, stand up and jump. Here's one, go again, two, three, you're going to do 10 reps on each side; keeping the core really tight and making sure you keep your weight on your heel, on your front foot and on your toe on your back foot. Go ahead and switch sides. Remember to breath and keep your core tight during this leg exercises. Go ahead and rest. And those are two exercises to work the total leg, but focused on specifically targeting the entire leg.
