Workout of the Week: Lower Body Strength

Instructions: Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up (such as the one listed below) that consists of an activity that increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion. It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you. This workout can be done with or without weights.

Workout: 3-4 sets with a 1-2 minute rest between each set as needed. Each set consists of performing each exercise for 8-12 repetitions.
