My Top 3 Exercises for Stronger Legs

All you need is a step and some weights! If you are at the gym you can use a barbell or dumbbells and a box or bench to step up on. If working out from home you need some form of weight to add resistance to your exercises and a sturdy chair or high step you can safely step up and down from.

Always warm up and cool down the body before any form of exercise. Gentle cardio and stretches will do the trick. Work to your own ability, but push yourself enough to feel the amazing benefits. For every exercise be mindful of good posture, keep the core turned on and remember to breathe!

Exercise 1: Weighted squats 10-15 reps 3 sets 45-60 second break between sets. Squat down to a comfortable depth aim for 90 degrees, feel the glutes engage and then return to standing position. Keep the back nice and straight, core turned on, head up and remember to breathe!

Exercise 2: Weighted step ups 10-15 reps each leg 3 sets 45-60 second break between sets. With one foot securely on a box/chair step up driving through the heel and back down. Keeping that same foot up repeat the movement.

Exercise 3: Weighted alternating lunges 20 reps (10 each leg) 3 sets 45-60 second break between sets. Lunge forward with one leg then step leg back to starting position and repeat with other leg. Legs should be at a 90 degree angle on the lunge.
