7 Leg Exercises To Do At Home
No Equipment Needed
Short on time? No need to skip your workout. These 7 exercises are great for a leg day workout - without any gym equipment. Do 3 sets of 12 for a full workout, or one set of each if you’re in a rush.
1. Basic Squat
Simple, yet effective and also serves as a warmup.
2. Curtsy Lunge
Work the sides of your hips and legs. Press through your heel to return to standing.
3. Reverse Lunge with Knee Drive
Step back to reverse lunge, the explode up as you drive your knee high.
4. Jump Squats
Another power move to blast your heart rate - squat down and explode into the air. Land softly.
5. Single Leg Romanian Deadlift
Challenge your balance! Keep one leg straight as you reach toward the opposite toe. Squeeze your glute to return to standing.
6. Plie Squat Calf Raises
Lower into a plie squat - stay low as you lift and lower your heels for a challenging calf raise.
7. Side Lying Toe Taps
Work that outer hip as you tap your toe to the front corner of your mat, then the back. Keep your body still!
Finish off with some gentle stretching and lots of water!
