The Bodyweight Workout That Builds Strong Legs

Leg training is often associated with heavy barbell squats and leg presses stacked the brim with plates. Yes, that’s one way to train legs, but there's another way to work your lower body that’s sure to transfer into athleticism: bodyweight exercises.

In fact, by simply playing with angles or even using just one leg, you’ll be able to give your quads, hips, and calves the stimulus to grow while taking off hundreds of pounds of added stress on your spine and joints. You’ll also get the added benefit of learning to control your body through space, increasing your mobility, and improving your coordination.

Substitute your current leg routine with this program. Alternate between Workout A and B and for maximum benefits, do three leg workouts per week (with a day of rest in between).

Follow the pace of exercise, too. For example, if it says “3 seconds down, 3 seconds up,” do three bloody seconds down and three bloody seconds up. Don’t shortchange the time; this creates a massive stimulus for growth because of the “time under tension.”
