Sometimes you need a #legsday routine that'll do more than build muscle. That's where this circuit comes in.

This workout combines two challenging exercises for your lower body (front squats and hack deadlifts) on top of one total-body stretch (the Mariachi pose). With that combo, you'll not only build out your quads, hamstrings, and glutes, but also protect your muscles from strain and prevent injury.

Directions

You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've finished all exercises, take as little rest as possible. Repeat the entire circuit for 4 to 6 rounds.

Depending upon your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest period. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
