One of the hardest areas of the body to get developed are the legs. They form some of the toughest muscle groups and due to their load-bearing nature require a lot of perseverance before it can be bought to shape. Leg days happen to be some most dreaded days for fitness enthusiasts. However, leg day also happens to be the most important day. This is because our body weight is supported entirely by our legs. Weak legs are detrimental to the overall stability of the body and a heavier upper body significantly creates a disturbance with the center of gravity. A strong lower body not only provides the perfect balance to the overall structure but also adds a dash of glamour to the physique. That is why, in this article, we talk about the benefits of leg workouts.

The leg is divided into four muscle groups: Quads, Glutes, Hamstrings, and Calves. They come with their respective exercise routines.

Let us quickly look at the various exercises that can turn your legs into monsters.

Barbell Squat

4 sets of intense barbell squats for the overall mass of the legs. Take care to correctly hold the weight over your shoulder. The balance needs to be perfect and the lifted posture has to be correct otherwise there is a possibility of an injury.

Leg Press

Dumbbell Walking Lunge

3 sets of 12 reps and that should be effective enough. The walking lunge helps develop the thighs as well as strengthens the core and the lower back

Leg Extension

3 sets of 10 reps each, the leg extension is specifically aimed at the thighs. Care should be taken to see that the knees do not bend upwards much otherwise there is a real threat of an injury.

Romanian Deadlifts

3 sets of increased rep starting from 8 and ending with 10.

Lying Leg Curls

This is the arm equivalent of a triceps curl. 3 sets of increased reps starting with 8 and ending at 10 should be a great workout.

Standing Calf Raises

A leg without bulging calves is a job half done. 4 sets of 20 reps each do well for the calves, especially after the rigorous workout.

The leg day though conjures images of a nauseating experience is the day when the building blocks of something beautiful was laid.
