Leg Exercises to Incorporate Into Your Workout

3/5/2013
Lacking or bored of leg exercises?

Here are some variations of squats and lunges to incorporate into your next workout: 

  •  From a typical squat position, step your feet out so that there is double the distance between your feet. Bend your knees, making sure you can still see your toes, and engage your core with your butt back. Stand back up. 
  • From this position, turn your toes out to the sides. Tilt your pelvis and bend your knees, moving your body straight up and down without sticking your butt out. 
  •  Squat and then jump to add more cardio into your workout. Squat down, and then with a big burst of energy jump up as high as you can. Land with soft knees into a squat, and repeat. 
  •  For lunges, instead of lunging forward and back, you can also lunge to the side. Stepping your right foot to the right, turning the toes slightly out, bend your right knee and keep your left leg straight. Push off of the right heel, and come back to center. Repeat on the left side.
