Your leg muscles are by far the largest and most important muscles in your body with respect to movement, stability and overall power. And it’s even more crucial to strengthen them. Stronger legs equal better balance, a leaner look, and better performance in sports and fitness.

Leg muscles support body weight when doing most activities, like walking, running and jogging. Building the leg muscles will strengthen the body and build endurance. Because the leg muscles are the largest in the body, building these muscles raises the metabolism. A raised metabolism means the body burns more calories even when resting and so benefits weight loss.

Basic anatomy breaks down the leg into 5 parts. The thighs and legs include some of the biggest and strongest muscles in the body. These include the front thigh muscles, also known as the Quadriceps or Quads, the back thigh muscles, referred to as Hamstrings, the inner and outer thigh muscles, called the Adductors, and the calf muscles, called the the Gastrocnemius. Here is a leg routine that will help strengthen and tone one or all of these target zones.

Get started! Leg workout routine:

Lunges One set walking, one set stationary.

Squats Ones set classic squats one set front squats

Calf Raises Toes pointed in, toes pointed out, toes straight.

Leg Extensions Machine, 1 set

Leg Curls Machine, 1 set

Abductor Machine Two sets outer legs, two sets inner.

Seated Leg Press Machine, 1 set.

*For best results, repeat routine. Remember there is no rest between sets.
