There’s a noticeable difference between legs with cut calves and taut quads and those that are plain shapeless! It can be all too easy to neglect your legs when you’re focused on cardio, abs, or arms, but it doesn’t take much time to create leg definition. With some regular work, you’ll have your pair of lean, sculpted legs to unveil. In addition to looking great, working out your legs is a major calorie burner since your body’s largest muscles are found in your lower body. Start by adding a couple of the following leg exercises to your daily routine.Elevated Split Squat
Put one foot on a bench or stair and keep the other leg bent at 90 degrees of slightly deeper form. Go down for five seconds until your rear knee nearly touches the floor, hold for another five and lift for five more. This challenging workout is pretty effective for your hamstring training. You can also hold a dumbbell in each hand if you dare to efficiently burn more calories. Lunges
Lunges are commonly known as the go-to exercise for the legs. When done right, they can be very effective and gradually can be modified to fit your fitness level. You can hold a rubber band over your head and pull it apart. This added balance component will activate the shoulder muscles, giving you a nice line between the thighs and the shoulders. Single-Leg Dead Lift
This glute-building exercise is another one you can do while entertaining yourself with Netflix! Stand on one foot and lift the other behind you until it’s parallel to the ground. Hold that positions for 10 seconds and push back. Bonus: This functional movement provides your hamstrings a great workout too. Wall Sits
Wall sits are a good addition to your leg training because you strengthen two major muscle groups in the thigh – quadriceps and hamstrings at once. As always, sit against the wall and lean against it for as long as you can. Do several sets of 30 seconds or a minute of the same. This timed static exercise can work wonders because the muscles are contracting without movement.
