10-Minute Leg Workout That Seriously Brings the Burn

Leg workouts may be challenging but they’re the most rewarding. As we saw in this article, leg workouts can boost your metabolism, growth hormone levels, and much more.

This workout will allow you to enjoy the benefits of leg workouts anytime and anywhere. It doesn’t require weights or any equipment.

You can even do it early in the morning to stay energetic all day. The best part is most of the exercises in this routine are unique. Chances are you’ve never done diamonds kicks or plie squat on toes.

Avoid taking long rests as that will kill the momentum of your workout. Don’t let the burn on your thighs stop you. Keep going until you finish the workout.

Do this workout for one week and then advance to more rewarding short home workouts. Below the workout are instructions on how to perform each exercise properly.

Plie Squat on Toes

Plie squats mainly target your quads. They also activate glutes and hamstrings while improving inner thigh flexibility.

Performing this exercise on your toes will help build your calf muscles.

Alternating Lunges

Many of us have done this simple lower body exercise before. It targets the quads, hamstrings, and glute.

When doing alternating lunges, keep your torso upright and make sure the front knee doesn’t extend past the toes when you lunge forward.

Alternating Reverse Lunges

This lunge variation isn’t as popular as the one above but it’s very rewarding. It’s actually better for improving your balance.

Make long backward strides to allow the front knee to bend at 90 degrees.

Stand Up Lunges

You need a soft surface like a yoga mat or a carpet to perform this exercise. Rest your knees on the floor slowly in order to avoid injuries.

Keep your torso upright throughout and ab muscles engaged.
