The video begins with Samantha doing barbell front squats with weights. According to, this workout puts less pressure on the spine than a traditional squat as it shifts the weight to the quadriceps and glutes.

The actor is then seen doing barbell hip thrusts, which build strength in the glutes, better than any other lower-body workout.

The next exercise is known as Romanian deadlift, which strengthens the hips, joints and muscles, according to It targets the hamstrings and the glutes and helps increase muscle mass.

The fitness enthusiast then goes on to do repetitions of split squats with dumbbells, followed by heel raises.

Beginners should try these workouts under supervision.
