Like this two-for-one chest and back circuit, this barbell-only circuit uses exercises that work to target both your legs and your abs.

Incorporate back-to-back rounds of barbell front squats, barbell reverse lunges, and barbell rollouts into your regular routine, and you'll not only develop stronger quads, glutes, hamstrings, and abs—you'll also see visibly muscled-up results.


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.
