The phrase is good advice because it's all too common for people to skip a leg day. Leg workouts are hard, no doubt. Squats, Deadlifts, and other leg exercises are physically demanding, and the soreness afterward can be beyond unpleasant. But it's one of the worst things you can do in your workouts. Skipping leg day means you don't work out your legs at all, resulting in your upper body being disproportionately bigger than your lower.

 

Following are 4 leg day exercises that one can easily follow:

 

Exercise: Jumping Rope

 

Focus: Quadriceps and Hamstrings

 

Benefits: Jumping rope can increase the elasticity of lower-leg muscles, leading to reduced risk of lower-leg injuries.

 

How to do it: Hold the jump rope in front of you with your hands together and your elbows close to your body. Practice a toe catch. Place the rope behind you and turn the jump rope over your head. Catch the jump rope under your toes and lift up your heels and let it out from underneath your feet.

Exercise: Deadlifts

 

Focus: Quadriceps and Hamstrings

 

Benefits: Deadlift focuses on your back, glutes, and legs. It is one of the only handful exercises that target muscles in the upper and lower body.

 

How to do it: Walk to the bar, stand with your mid-foot under the bar. Grab the bar and bend over without bending your legs. Drop into position by bending your knees until your shins touch the bar. Lift your chest. Keep in your mind that you have to straighten your back by raising your chest. Take a big breath, hold it and stand up to the weight. Pull your shoulders back at the top of the move, and then carefully lower the bar to the ground.

Exercise: Butt Kicks

 

Focus: Hamstrings, Glutes

 

Benefits: Butt Kick strengthens your legs and helps prevent injuries. This exercise is a great cardiovascular move that warms up your body and keeps your heart rate up while burning your calories.

How to do it: Stand tall with your feet shoulder-width apart and face forward. Now start kicking your feet up until the heel touches the glutes, and pump your arms at the same time. Repeat.

Exercise: Dumbbell Lunge

 

Focus: Glutes, Hips and Butt

 

Benefits: Dumbbell Lunges work on your leg muscles including your quadriceps, hamstrings, adductors, inner thighs and calves.

 

How to do: Stand straight with dumbbells on both sides. Keep in mind that your palms should face towards your body. Lunge forward with your right leg. Now bend your trailing knee so that it almost brushes the floor. Use the heel of your right foot to push your upper body back to the starting position. Repeat with the opposite leg.

Remember: Leg workouts stimulate some of the largest muscles in your body, which helps create a metabolic state that is conducive to muscle growth. You can build muscle in your upper body without working out your legs, but working all the major muscles in your body will lead to faster and better results. So, never skip your leg day!
