For a seriously dynamic lower-body workout, look to kettlebell training. Even the basic swing is seriously lower-body dominant—your hips and glutes (and not your arms!) power up every swing. “Rather than isolate each individual muscle in the lower body separately, we can train them together so that our time is best managed and our results more powerful,” says Bob Garon, owner and head coach at Synergy Kettlebell Training, which has three locations in northern Illinois.
Coach Bob Pelsang, founder of Kettlebell Training USA in Jackson, NJ, agrees. “The strength and endurance will build character, definition, and a can-do attitude that will carry over into everything else you do.”
Let these workouts, designed by Garon and Pelsang, amp up your next Leg Day.
