There’s more to leg workouts than just squats. Since your legs are made up of many muscle groups, it’s important to include exercises that target them all. There’s the hamstrings, the quadriceps, the gluteus, and the calves. So, to get a full leg workout, you should include varied moves that target all of these muscles.
For this workout, we made sure no major muscle gets left out. You’ll have three rounds to complete, each focusing on a different part of your leg. First, you’ll target your thighs, so you can start building strong and powerful legs. Next, the calves for sleek curves, and, finally, the butt so you can sport a round perky behind. This full leg workout will give you all-over stronger legs! Not to mention, the workout will also help you torch fat because activating multiple muscle groups increases your calorie burn.
What You’ll Need: a yoga mat or towel to lay on the floor, and an optional jump rope
What to Do: For each round, complete all the exercises in order and rest for 60 to 90 seconds before moving on to the next round. Then repeat the full set a total of 3 times.
Below, we’ve included videos showing how to perform each move. Using proper form helps prevent injuries and ensures you’re getting the most out of your workout.
