When it comes to firing up your legs, you can't hold anything back—and this circuit doesn't leave anything out.

Burn up your quads, hamstrings, and glutes with back-to-back rounds of barbell hack deadlifts and reverse lunges—these are the big-gun exercises that'll take your legs from scrawny to substantial. A finishing round of alternating shoulder taps provides a solid finisher for your core, and will also work your glutes, as well.


You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've finished all exercises, rest for 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 5 to 10 rounds.

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