Time to participate in leg day at the gym! Leg days’ reputation is an intimidating obstacle to face when first starting out at the gym, and its hard to find a good leg workout routine that shows results. Legs are the most difficult muscle groups to train therefore we put together a list to beef up those trunks and fill those jeans!
Here are top five best leg workout routines to try in the gym:

Standing Calf Raises

Rest your hands against a wall or a sturdy object for balance. Raise your heels a few inches above the edge of the step so that you’re on your tiptoes. Hold the position for a moment, and then lower your heels below the platform, feeling a stretch in your calf muscles.

4 sets, 12, 12, 20, 20 reps

this leg workout requires you to hold a bar at hip level with a pronated (palms facing down) grip. Your shoulders should be back, your back arched, and your knees slightly bent. This will be your starting position. Lower the bar by moving your butt back as far as you can.

3 sets, 8, 10, 12 reps

Leg Press

The leg press is a weight training exercise in which the individual pushes a weight or resistance away from them using their legs. The term leg press also refers to the apparatus used to perform this exercise. The leg press can be used to evaluate an athlete’s overall lower body strength (from knee joint to hip).

4 sets, 8-10, 8-10, 10-12, 10-12 reps
