6 Workout That Builds Strong, Sexy Legs


If you’re new to work on strengthening your legs, or you just want to do something different than you have been doing before, here you can find how to structure your workouts for the best results.






How it works:
–Warm up for 5-10 minutes performing light cardio, such slow jog, a fast walk or slow skipping,
–Pair the moves in supersets, alternating sets of exercises 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6.
–Perform first superset—a high volume of repetitions (15 to 18) and lighter weights to get the muscles ready for the work ahead.
–Rest for one to two minutes between the supersets.
Total Time: up to 45 minutes
