5 workouts to do on leg day

We agree that leg day is not fun at all, especially after a day or two, the pain is intense and you might feel like you need a wheelchair to move around, right? However, that shouldn’t be an excuse for you to skip leg day. Find out what you can do on your leg day for faster results!

1.Leg Press

Suggested sets and reps: 4 sets of 8-10 reps

In order to make full use of this workout, create a 90-degree with your torso and legs. Also, remember to keep the knees bent slightly to avoid injuries. Instead of holding your phone to binge-watch your favourite TV series or take countless selfies, make sure your hands are always on the safety bars, for your OWN safety.

2.Dumbbell walking lunge

Suggested sets and reps: 3 sets of 10-14 reps each side

First, stand upright with hip-width holding a dumbbell in each hand. Then put one leg forward, bending your knees. Dip till your other knee meets the floor (if possible). Try to keep an upright posture throughout the reps.

3. Standing calf raises

Suggested sets and reps: 4 sets of 14-20 reps

Probably the easiest workout on our list, calf raises can be done literally everywhere and anytime. Raise your heels as high as possible, feeling your calves flex. Pause for a second and return to your initial position.

4.Barbell squat

Perform your normal squats but add barbell with weights to this workout. Go a little heavy at first but after finishing 2-3 reps, unload your weights.

5.Lying leg curls

Suggested sets and reps: 3 sets of 8-12 reps

Lie face down and place your feet under the footpad of the machine. Grab the machine’s handle and stretch your legs fully. Curl your legs as far as you can and repeat.
