ALL LEVELS / lower body strength workout / 35 minutes
Equipment: Dumbbells, lower back bench & leg extension machine
Never skip leg day. If you have any gym experience, you definitely heard this one. There are even memes about it. Jokes aside, the fact remains: lower body workouts are sometimes neglected in favour of upper body ones. But they shouldn’t because they’re crucial for a balanced, whole-body routine. Plus, strong leg muscles help you build a strong and stable foundation, maximising and boosting your fitness performance.
To bring a little diversity to your workouts and get all the benefits above, we bring you this lower body strength workout. It has 5 exercises with 12 reps each. You’ll perform 4 rounds in total, and rest 45 seconds between each round and exercise. All combined, this workout should take you around 35 minutes to complete. Since this is a strength workout with a fairly low number of reps and plenty of time to rest, make sure you add a little more weight than usual to each exercise.
When you’re ready, let’s start this workout!
