Do Try This at Home

For a simple side lunge, stand with feet together. With right leg straight, step to the side with the left, bending at left knee. Push off with left leg to return to start.

These five simple leg exercises can be performed around the home, or even in a hotel room when you’re travelling. Make them even more effective by using everyday objects to add weight and resistance to your workout.

Four Reasons To Train Your Legs

Upper Body Benefits
Stronger leg and core muscles will result in you having increased strength for upper-body lifts, thereby helping upper-body muscle development as well.

Mental Strength
Leg training is not easy – doing enough repetitions to see results is physically and mentally challenging, so performing squats, lunges and deadlifts will build mental endurance.

Boost Metabolism
Your leg muscles are the largest in your body – moving them requires lots of energy, meaning more kilojoules burned. Squats, lunges and deadlifts use nearly every muscle in your body.

Prevent Injuries
Most athletic injuries involve weak stabiliser muscles, ligaments and connective tissues, which leg exercises help strengthen. They also improve your flexibility and balance.
