How To Get Stronger Legs, And Eventually A Stronger Core


There’s a reason dudes fear leg day. It’s f*cking painful and needs a lot of determination. That’s why ‘chicken legs’ is actually becoming an epidemic. For those who don’t fear leg day, this is for you. Working out the legs shouldn’t be limited to isolation moves. It’s actually the compound moves that will help you build real strong and evenly developed legs. These 3 exercises will help you build mass and sculpt your legs. 

1) Barbell Squats

Only amateur lifters ignore the power of barbell squats. Barbell front squats and barbell back squats are and will always remain the cornerstone of quadriceps development. While the front rack squats provides a counter balance that assists the back to stay upright and direct the weights towards the quads, the back squats (high and low bar) workouts the hip flexion region. Work on your form first and then move to heavier weights. Do it with the correct form and you will get the so-called squatter’s knee!

2) Sprints

The benefits of sprinting can be endlessly written about. For everything, from burning fat to resetting your metabolism for good, sprinting is a must. A staple sprint routine can reduce body fat and help in packing on lean muscle mass. A few hundred meters of high intensity interval sprinting every week can help you develop well gutted quads and calves.

3) Deadlifts

There’s no better lean muscle mass builder than deadlifts. Master proper form and you’ll know what a satisfying toll deadlifts take on the glutes and quads, especially the glutes. Primarily a leg movement but deadlift also takes a toll on your core as it’s the core that plays the role of a stabilizer as you lift and move the heavy weight.
