There’s good reason behind the adage “Never Skip Leg Day”. The muscles in your legs are some of the biggest in your body, which means that working out your lower body helps you to burn more calories and fat. Additionally, having well-rounded strength helps to prevent injuries and reduce back pain. Add these great lower body moves to your routine to strengthen your calves, quads, hammies and buns.
Though a static movement, this traditional yoga pose will get your quads burning quick! Bend your front knee to 90 degrees, keeping your knee aligned over your ankle. Open your hips and extend your arms, gazing over your fingertips as you sink in to the pose. Hold for 30-60 seconds, and repeat on the other side.
