Leg day with my boy owen. This clip shows squats and leg presses, two essential exercises in lower body growth.
Squats are mostly known as a leg exercise, but they promote body-wide muscle building by catalyzing an anabolic environment. Squats are also one of the best functional exercises out there, promoting mobility and balance and helping you complete real-world activities with ease.
The leg press is beneficial because it can be an efficient way to spur progress. The leg press targets a number of different muscles: your quadriceps, gluteus maximus, soleus, gastrocnemius, hamstrings and adductor magnus. The ability to stimulate multiple muscle groups makes the leg press a more efficient choice than other leg exercises that target just one muscle.
