Cardio Legs (BW (bodyweight) workout)

Cardio isn’t my thing. In fact, unless I am walking or dancing, cardio is a sparse activity on my workout regimen. When toning workouts or lifting sessions take on cardio like qualities, this is my happy place.

Check out my body weight cardio leg workout. This is perfect for a beginner but a challenge too. Enjoy!


Lunges- 25 lunges per side x3 sets

Squats-25 squats per set x3 sets

Leg Ups- 25 per side x3 sets

Step Ups- 25 each side x3 sets

Wall Sit- For 30-60 seconds or for however long you can hold it!

**Tip: You can add reps or sets as needed to push yourself**

Lunges and Squats

Basic yet essential, these two moves are great for your butt and legs.



Leg Lifts

Leg lifts are a great hip openers and give shape and muscle to your butt.


Leg lifts


Step Ups

Love this leg move! Stepping up onto a bench is one of my favorite butt moves and definitely counts as cardio.



And if you aren’t at the gym..get creative!



Wall Sits

Loathed by most and denied by some, wall sits are a great ending to any leg workout.

That wraps it up for my cardio leg BW workout. How do you feel? Make sure to stretch afterwards and drink plenty of water. Watch for future BW workouts to come, weights included!
