Home workout for killer legs

Loving this home workout combo for toning and strengthen the legs with kettlebells and body weight. This simple workout targets the legs in different angles, make sure you feel all the movements, apply the mindfulness to the session and you will have results.

THE GOBLET SQUAT

If you have following me you know that I use goblet squats for different trainings, this basic movement is perfect and simple, it is easy to master and you will come back to it when it is needed. The technique here is to squat down as you are sitting, knees in align with the big toe of your feet. Fit your own move since we all have different body structure. If still are not sure that you are doing it right, face the wall until you master it and are ready to move on.

The squat is a quadriceps dominant, the front of the leg will lead the movement while doing it. The connection between your ankles, your knees and your hips is important so pay attention to them without obsession.

THE WEIGHTED WALKING LUNGES

Walking lunges complement the muscles worked in the previous goblet squat, the muscles of the buttocks and inner tights are targeted and will benefit the home workout as a whole.

THE ARCHER SQUAT

I love to do archer squat as a body weight exercise at home or while I travel I can go for cossack squat if I want to work on my mobility more than strength or building muscle. This movement will improve your balance and coordination.

THE SINGLE LEG SQUAT ON A CHAIR 

The single set squat on a chair or bench is perfect to build stability, work on your balance and improve your mobility. This movement will also prepare you for a pistol squat. It target the same muscle group, glutes, calves and ankles.

  • I just changed my cardio/hiit workouts to weight training! And it’s fairly similar to your routine as well! I feel like it’s much more efficient too, at least to kind of help tone my body! Squats are so underrated in my opinion – if done right they can engage so many muscles and really give such an improvement to your form!
    Loved your article 🙂

  • I always search workouts on Pinterest, especially for legs because we all want those legs we see in Hollywood. One of my favorite things is to find workouts I can do at home because I don’t always have the time to go the gym, so this is perfect and I can’t wait to try it out! Thank you for posting! 🙂

  • Great exercise selection. Goblet squats are underutilized in my opinion. And walking lunges are always brutal haha

  • Great exercises you are sharing here. Goblet squats are my one of my favorites too! I think it’s important to incorporate weight training along with HIIT training to accomplish strength and femininity within our legs. http://www.fit2fash.com
