Leg Workouts For Men



Men and women could both ABSOLUTELY benefit from these types of leg workouts. However, we categorize these as leg workouts for men because of the general goal: strengthen and define versus tighten and tone. Of course, the specific exercises that you see in leg workouts for men will often be similar exercises that you see in leg workouts for women. The key differences will be weight and reps. Leg workouts for men will generally include higher weight and lower reps.

Leg Workout Exercise Examples

Remember, a workout is just a collection of exercises. Here’s what you would expect in a leg workout made for men: - Variations of Squats – anything from 3 sets of 3 reps of barbell squats to 10 sets of 10 reps. - Deadlifts – the other big lift. Sometimes performed the same day as squats, OR if you’re going big on weight that week, will usually be the focus of an entire workout - Lunges, Hip-Thrusts, and Step-ups - oh man, these will get you. Every type and variation of weights and reps that you can imagine. Grant loves to burn you out with these. Verner loves to burn you out with these. A little satanic? Maybe…but they definitely get the job done.

Grant’s Body Series: Legs

Today's workout will pre-exhaust the hamstrings which will allow the quads to work harder on squatting moves’ • Lying Machine Hamstring Curl - 6x8 start very light and ramp up weight each set. Rest for 45 seconds between sets. • Straight-Leg Barbell Deadlift - 5x6 also start light and ramp up weight each set, if you have good mobility try using 25 lb plates or less to get a greater range of motion than 45s.

Leg Workouts for Women

Whether you’re looking to build a lower body closer to Kylie Jenner or Jennifer Aniston, trainers will still advise you to add weight to your workouts. It’s counter-intuitive. We know. Lifting weight can actually help you tighten and tone. Weights can also be used to achieve a variety of goals, which makes them such an important part of leg workouts for women.


How to Do Leg Workouts at Home

There’s two types of not having a gym: 1) ‘I don’t belong to a gym, but I have a lot of weights at home and 2) I don’t belong to a gym, and I don’t own any weights in my apartment. You can do leg workouts at home in each case, but it will be harder to get the same pump you would in the gym without weights. Bodyweight workout enthusiasts will fight hard on this one, but we’re sticking to it.
