Here’s the Leg Workout Overview

It’s split into two parts



Part A

A1: Glute Bridges (10-15 reps)

A2: Drop Squats (6-10 reps)

A3: Calf Raises (6-10 reps (each leg))

Rest (60-90 seconds) And Repeat A1-A3 (3-5 Rounds)



Part B

B1: Split Squat (8-15 reps) (2-second pause)

B2: Knee Get Ups (6-10 reps)

B3: Quick Lungs 6-10 reps (each leg)

Rest (60-90 seconds) And Repeat B1-B3 (3-5 Rounds)



Part A

A1: Glute Bridges (10-15 reps)

Target: Glutes and Hamstrings

Step 1: Lie down on your back, with your feet flat on the ground and your knee bent.

Have your hands on your side with your palms down.

Step 2: Lift your hips up until your shoulder, hips, and thighs form a straight line with your legs.

Next, squeeze your glutes and keep your core in so you don’t overextend your back.

Step 3: Finally, hold the bridge position for a couple seconds before bringing it back down to rest position.



Max Glute Contraction:

Hold the Bridge for 30 seconds or more. Hold it until failure.

It will really work the leg muscles if you hold the static position!



Progression Tip:

If holding  Glute Bridges with two legs is too easy, then try doing single leg holds.

It will add twice the weight and you will sure feel it!

Single Leg Glute Bridge

Make sure you are not pushing from your heels, the power should come from only your hips.



A2: Drop Squat (10 reps)

Target: Glutes, Hamstrings, Quads

Step 1: Stand straight up with your feet forwards and shoulder-width apart.

Step 2: Bend your knees, push your hips back behind your legs.

And lower your body as far as you can while keeping your torso straight as much as you can.

Step 3: Quickly move your body back to your original starting position. (That is one rep)



MAX Contraction:

Hold the position at the bottom for a few seconds instead of going straight back up.



A3: Calf Raises (6-10 reps) (each leg)

Target: Calves

Step 1: Stand on a set of stairs with your heels hanging off with the balls of your feet only on the stairs.

Step 2: Let your bodyweight bend all the way down the full stretch.

Step 3: Contract your calves and bring your body as high as you can and hold the position for 2 seconds.

Step 4: Bring back down to the starting position. (That is one rep)



MAX Contraction:

Flex your calves off the stairs and hold the position for 30+ secs



Progression Tip:

If doing double Calf Raises is TOO easier,

Perform single leg calf raises where you put all your weight on one leg and perform the similar movement.



Do A1-A3 with no rest between exercises

After A3 rest 2 minutes

Repeat 3-4 total rounds

Part B
B1: Split Squat 8-15 reps (2-second pause) (each leg)

Target: Quads

Step 1: Position yourself in a staggered position with your rear foot elevated on a chair/staircase

And your front foot forward.

Step 2: Hold your posture and chest up.

Flex your knee and hips to activate the descend of your back leg.

Keep your front knee in line with your foot but don’t overextend it past your foot.

Step 3: At the bottom of the motion, hold the position for 2 seconds.

Make sure the back knee is about an inch or 2 off the ground.

Step 4: Drive the knee to extend the leg to bring the movement back to the starting position.



MAX Contraction:

Hold the bottom position for 20 seconds or so. Add more seconds.

Or do Quick Split Legs where you have no hold time at the bottom of the motion

And you move as fast as you can but in a controlled manner.



B2: Knee Get Ups (6-10 reps)

Target: Glutes and Quads

Step 1: Start with kneeling on your knees with your body upright.

Step 2: Drive your arms and knees up and while bring your chest forward simultaneously.

Target: Quads

Step 1: In a standing position, extend one foot out in front of you.

Hold the opposite hand out to make sure your body is balanced.
