    This is a great routine….basic moves combined into a circuit. I love it. I was wondering if you could provide alternate exercises to the leg press, extension and curls? I am working out at home and have dumbbells and a swiss ball, but no bench. Also, is a 14" step high enough to use for step ups?

    • Skinny Ms. says:

      Hi Merritt, Thank you! Sure…check tomorrow's Daily workout for Beginners. I'll create a workout for the lower body…at your request. A 14" step is fine for step-ups. If you're not a beginner to fitness, just increase your reps and the amount of weight you're lifting.

    So what's my options for the machine exercises if I'm working out at home without weight machines?

    • skinnyms says:

      Treasa, There's plenty of leg workouts on our site they do not require machines. Just click on Fitness at the top and look for leg workouts! Thanks.

    I just have to say… Great routine, but you should really add the glute bridge! With weights so you (barley) can do about 20 reps x3 sets. It is a killer for the butt, I have seen a differense in only two weeks. The main key to get it right, is to really fokus on the muscles in you glutes, so do it first with no weights, and hold the pose trying to relax as much as possible in your legs, only contracting your glutes!
