5 Butt Exercises To Make Legday More Awesome
Being able to lunge correctly has some great benefits for lots of sporting activities and also helps to build core muscles. Dumbbell lunges are a good exercise to help build and strengthen hamstrings, hips, quads and glutes. Lunges are best done at the start of your leg day workout and work best with moderate weight. When performing dumbbell lunges you can choose to use either a barbell or dumbbells.
Squats are one of the most essential and common ways to build muscles in the legs. Any lower body exercise plan would not be complete without using variation of the squat. The goblet squat is an excellent way for beginners to get started with leg muscle exercises.
Start standing, feet slightly wider than hips-width apart. With a long, tall spine and abs drawn inward, rise up onto the balls of feet with knees straight but not locked. Pause at the top, and squeeze calf muscles. Lower back down with control.
The most underrated and underutilized squat in the world of strength training. Not only does a front squat help you to maintain a very upright and neutral spine, but it also hits the quads far more effectively than the back squat.
Side lunges can be somewhat challenging for newbies due to the tightness in the ankle, hip, and groin. But the more you do this exercise, the easier it will get, as you’ll be strengthening the glutes and inner thigh.
