Build strong legs with 5 leg exercises

Follow along as we are given an awesome leg blasting workout, it will help you tone your glutes, thighs, and calves.

-The first exercise is a forward/backward lunge: Start by going into a forward lunge and immediately move into the backward lunge. (Have a weight in each hand). Switch legs and repeat. Do about ten on each side.
-For the next exercise you are going to need a block or something that you can raise your foot onto. This exercise is great for runners. Start off with your heel placed on the block, roughly a right angle at the knee. Take your other foot and push it straight up and bring back down. Repeat. The leg on the block will straighten out as well. Do ten to fifteen on each side and switch legs.
-Grab two weights for the next exercise, get into squat position. Now hold the two weights between your legs and squat. The key is to squeeze your glutes.
-For the next exercise grab a dumbbell. Start with your feet shoulder width apart and in squat position with the weight at the opposite foot. (Opposite hand, opposite foot). As you come up, bring the weight up diagonally and the foot the weight was at comes off the floor. Repeat and then switch legs/arms.
Do ten to fifteen on each side.
-For this next workout you will need to grab the weights and the block. You are going to do a lunge into a step up. Start with one foot on the block, go down into a lunge and then step up with both feet onto the box. And then back down, repeat and then switch sides. Do ten to fifteen on each side.

There you have it, a couple simple workouts to help build strong and toned legs.
