Looking for the best leg strengthening exercises? These are great both and out of the gym to focus and develop your legs while also engaging your core. Be sure to focus on your form when doing these because it is easy to overcompensate to your lower back rather than using your legs. Follow my top three exercises four days a week and your legs will be stronger than ever.
1. Kettlebell swings-
This dynamic move elevates your heart rate while strengthening your legs, especially the glutes and hamstrings. I love this move for weight loss as you’re incorporating cardio and strength training at the same time. Try 3 sets of 15 reps starting with a moderate weight, 15 pound kettlebells.
2. Stability Ball Hamstring curls-
This move increases abdominal engagement along with focus on hamstring and glutes. Try 2 sets of 25 reps for best results.
3. Side lunges-
Side lunges are one of the best injury prevention moves that strengthen your quads, glutes, and muscles that will help you become a faster runner or walker. Start with 3 sets of 15 reps on each side.
