Leg Exercises are crucial in developing a strong, lean, firm physique. To often guys skip these in favour of concentrating on the upper body. Women skip them for fear you’ll end up with chunky legs. That’s all hog wash. You need to do leg exercises to gain muscle tissue be it mass or lean, and they are crucial in cutting weight and burning fat.

The reason for this has little to do with your muscles and more with your nerves. In order to stimulate the body into adapting and building lean muscle tissue you need to stress as much muscle as possible. The leg exercises below are designed specifically to stimulate the body into just that. Without them your body will not develop significantly and the majority of the gains you could make will be lost.

If you’re unsure which exercises would benefit you most, or how many times you should perform them for the best results perhaps you should consider Online Personal Training with me. You can find out more here. 

The leg exercises below are among the best of the best and will stimulate tone and strengthen your whole lower body. It’s one of my secrets to quick body transformation. Treasure it and apply it. Let’s get to it.
