5 Exercises to Work Your Legs! Fitness

Everyone loves new workouts!

On Monday, I worked biceps. I’ll make sure to go into more detail about my bicep exercises another day. I don’t have very prominent bicep peaks and, while peaks are genetic, I’m trying to improve them the best I can!

Yesterday was a busy day! I started out at the gym, per usual. I worked legs (my favorite day!) and was able to increase my squat and deadlift weight (yay!). When making up a routine in the gym, I make sure to work things that I know will not just look good (ie. the booty) but also things that will help me in other areas. Sure my hamstrings will look good, but strengthening my glutes and hammies will also help me when I run. I have an IT band issue and strengthening my glutes is one of the best ways to help heal that and keep it from being a consistent bother when I run.

In order to get a good workout in in a good amount of time, I added a super set to the end of my workout to make sure my heart rate stayed up! It’s easy to get stuck sometimes at the gym. Sometimes you just kind of look around thinking “What do I do next?”

Well, here’s a workout to put in the holster for next time! There are 5 exercises to work your legs and these are the exercises I do, for the most part.  I’ve really seen a difference in building my glutes, quads, and hamstrings doing these exercises!
