This post is for the ladies! I have a love/hate relationship with leg day. The quads/hamstrings/glutes are some of the largest muscle groups in the body so by training them hard you are developing a complete physique, increasing speed if you’re a runner, explosiveness and by working the largest muscle group you are burning the most calories during this workout.
I typically train legs twice a week. One focusing on Glutes / Hamstrings and one day focusing on the Quads. I always do 4 sets of each exercise increasing the weight with each set. If you are looking to get those legs toned here are some of my favorite moves. You can find instruction videos on BodyBuilding.com.
- Leg Extensions
- Lunges (Walking Lunges, Jump Lunges, Clock Lunges)
- Leg Press (Single Leg Press and Double Leg Press)
- Single Leg Squat
Glutes / Hamstrings
- Hamstring Curls
- Single Leg Deadlift
- Reverse Lunges
- Hip Bridges (with weights)
