Keep Calm and Lift Legs.

Don't skip leg day.

Don’t be stuck with “chicken legs.”

 

“I’m actually really tired today. I think I’ll just skip leg day again, for the tenth straight time.” Yeah I get it, working out legs is no fun, but you know what’s even worse? Looking like a chicken in the gym – having a huge upper body, and very small lower body.

I’m sorry to be blunt but there are so many reasons to workout legs.

  • Creates an even balance of bodily functions.
  • Making your body look symmetrical appealing so you don’t look like a fool.
  • Creates stability for the body.
  • Improves your core strength

Increase strength of and mass of your muscles.

 

Before I give you some examples of the exercises you can do around the house, here are some things that Bodybuilding.com suggest you do if you have time to go to the gym. They include exercises that workout

  • Hamstrings
  • Quads
  • Calves

However, if you don’t have the time to go the gym or a more common, but excusable excuse during this time of the year, reason is that you’re either snowed in or the streets have iced over. Don’t kill yourself trying to get to the gym. If the driving conditions or if the weather is unbearable, then don’t risk it, just stay home and do a workout in the comfort of your own home.

Here are just a few exercises that you can do at home, they are, but not limited to:

  • Single leg calf raises.
  • Single leg step-ups.
  • Single leg squats.

Even though the exercises aren’t enough to grow the biggest legs in the world, but they are enough to create a stable core and really give those legs a good burn. We all know that working out legs can be tough, but you have to push threw that mentality. Just know that a few lousy minutes a day working out legs is a lot better than looking like an upside-down triangle.

 

Good luck with this workout. I know it’s getting really cold outside, burr, but I promise these exercises will warm you up!
