Want an effective leg workout without stepping foot into the squat rack?
This workout is relatively quick and quite effective–you’ll work your quads, hamstrings and gluteus muscle in just a few moves. Focus on slow, controlled movements and contracting your glutes in the squats and leg raises (feel the burn!).
The goblet squat is a great exercise for anyone new to squats–due to the placement of the weight in relation to your body/center of gravity, it’s much easier to maintain proper form than in a back, front or other kind of squat. They can be done with a kettlebell or dumbbell.
Never underestimate the simple efficiency of the kettlebell and leg press!
