Men and women both look for ways to build up their lower-body muscles. The muscles in our lower-body are our largest and as a result, require the greatest amount of energy to build. So, instead of using that extra needed energy on researching the best ways to build leg strength, I provided my own personal proven method below! Give it a try!
Throughout the years, I have experimented with various weight-lifting, body-weight and cardio training exercises to build up strength in the lower-body. Many different exercises have been successful for this task, but the combinations below have proven to be most effective for me and my goals.
For the purpose of building strength in the leg, glute, hamstring and overall lower-body, try the below supersets! These exercises are comprised of a short cardio exercise, followed by lower-body-targeted superset combinations.
1 Minute Sprints (*Critical to sprint, not jog)
1st Weight Superset:
12 Rep Leg Press
12 Rep Deadlift
12 Rep Straight-legged deadlift
10 Deep Squat
2nd Weight Superset:
12 Rep Quad Extension Machine (Both Feet 90o with Legs)
12 Rep Quad Extension Machine (Both Feet Turned Outward at 130o)
12 Rep Quad Extension Machine (Pointed Toes)
12 Rep Hamstring Curl Machine
Repeat x 3
Perform this exercise once per week with an increase of 5-10 lbs each week and notice your lower-body strength increase!
