Practicing these 10 moves will guarantee you achieve great results in a very short time!
Now is the perfect time to get ready for the next summer season, because getting your legs in perfect shape needs some time and a good workout program.
1) Romanian Dead Lift
- As you hold the dumbells push one foot behind you, shift the weight into the right foot.
- With the back straight, hinge at the hips, and raise the left leg in order to position the torso parallelly to the floor.
- Once you feel confident doing the exercise, work towards a heavier weight and between 10 and 15 reps.
2) Pulsing Squats
- Pulsing squats are a great exercise to burn out your leg muscles.
- Start standing straight up and push your hips back, keeping your weight in your heels.
- Engage your core and work towards a 90-degree angle at the bottom of your squat.
- Without standing completely straight, come back up to a 145-degree angle and repeat.
- Pulse for 30 to 60 reps.
3) Jumping Lunges
- First, you need to start in a typical lunge pose, with your right foot forward and bent 90 degrees at the knee and your left foot extended behind your body.
- Then you need to tighten your core and propel yourself upwards with your right foot so that you are jumping in the air.
- Next, you need to switch feet mid-jump and land in a lunge, with your left foot forward, and then you need to repeat for two sets of 5 reps each.
- This exercise is a high-intensity exercise, but it also gets results quickly.
- That’s why while it is great to practice once or twice a week, be sure to keep your routine within personal limits.
4) Speed Skaters
- Do a reverse lunge with your back leg at an angle.
- Leap to the side, and while tapping your toe to the ground, bring the opposite leg behind.
- Jump back immediately in the other direction, and keep alternating until you feel the burn.
- Try to get at least 3 to 6 inches off the floor and work with a high rep range—around 25 to 50 reps total.
5) Calf Raises
- Raise your heels slowly, keeping your knees extended (but not locked).
- Pause for one second when you’re standing as much on the tips of your toes as you can.
- Lower your heels back to the ground, returning to the starting position.
6) Goblet Squats
- First, you need to stand with your feet apart from the same distance as your shoulders.
- Then while you holding a dumbbell to your chest you also need to hold the dumbbell by one end between your hands.
- With the other end extending downwards towards the torso and you are in the starting position.
- Next, you need to squat down slowly and then keep your slightly arched back and push your hips back, you need to continue down until your thighs are parallel to the floor.
- You need to hold this for 2 seconds and return to the original position and then repeat it.
- Once you’re ready to progress, work towards a heavier weight and an 8 to 10 rep range.
7) Reverse Lunge to Kick
- Reverse lunges to a front kick are great to ensure quad, glute, and core activation while increasing your heart rate.
- This exercise is more advanced but can be performed at any fitness level.
- Start in a standing position, step one foot back into a reverse lunge and then bring that same foot forward for a front kick. It is important to lean slightly back while kicking forward.
- This will help to activate your core and increase your range of motion.
- Focus on repeating this exercise on one leg with 10 to 15 reps, then repeat on the other side.
8) Kettle Bell Swings
- You need to begin standing with your legs wider. Then hip-width apart and both hands holding the kettlebell between your legs and then you need to bend your knees slightly.
- Next, you need to lean your chest forward, swing the kettlebell back in between your legs, and then thrust your hips forward until you’re in a standing position.
- And then simultaneously throw your arms straight in front of you while maintaining a firm grip on the weight and repeat.
- You also need to make sure you’re popping your hips backward and forward; these are thrusts, not squats, and then complete 15-20 swings.
9) Jump Squats
- Start with your shoulders wide apart and your legs as well.
- Keep your back straight as you go down with your butt as you are sitting.
- Hold it for a few seconds and then go up in the initial position.
- You are allowed to make several arrangements of 10 repetitions if one set of 20 repetitions is too much for you.
- The exercise needs to be performed during a period of 30 seconds per each side.
10) Plank Leg Lift
- But if the sixty seconds is too difficult for you, you can start with ten seconds, then relax for ten seconds and hold the plank for another ten seconds.
- And to see the progress, repeat this set three to five times a day.
- But do not think that ten seconds on a plank is pointless, actually, planking to shorter periods of time is effective training that can help you build strength.
- But while you are advanced and if you have one plank that you hold in a minute is very easy for you, fitness experts recommend increasing your difficulty by tightening your stomach, glutes, and quads, and of course, you can hold a plank for two minutes or more
