3 of the basic leg exercises from my leg workout yesterday, was feeling tired and drained from a long week but kept pushing and had a solid workout 💪🏼 1️⃣ Barbell Squats: one of the most basic exercises and most beneficial, make sure you are pushing through your heels and glutes as well as keeping your chest up and back straight, form is everything with this exercise, and bad form can lead to lots of different types of injuries
2️⃣ Dumbbell Step Ups: I’ve always had tight hips and I find the step ups either weighted with dumbbells, a barbell or just body weight is great for stretching your hip flexor while growing your quads and flutes as well. Again focus on keeping your chest upwards and driving through your heel
3️⃣ Romanian Dumbbell Deadlifts: Again you can use dumbbells as seen in the video or a barbell, want to focus on your hip hinge while keeping a neutral spine. Also try to keep the dumbbells as close to your legs as possible while coming up. If you want to focus the contraction more on your hamstring, bend your legs slightly like I did in the video
