Lower Leg Exercises

Exercises with your lower legs as a contributor:

  • Lateral Lunges With Medicine Ball - Medicine Ball

    The twist of this exercise strengthens the back muscles in a functional way.

  • Leg Curl - Machine

    A great option for hamstring isolation if you prefer not to lie down on your stomach. The back pad encourages your spine to remain still and your hips to remain in contact with the bench.

  • Leg Curl - Stability Ball

    This is a great cross-training alternative to a hamstring curl machine at the gym. It challenges your stability muscles because the ball will want to roll.

  • Leg Extension - Bodyweight

    This can be done anywhere, from your kitchen to standing at a bus stop, so you'll always have a reason to do them.

  • Lunges - Bodyweight

    Lunges can be done anywhere and just a few can really fatigue your leg and hip muscles.

  • Lunges - Free Weight

    Using weights with lunges fatigues your legs faster in order to keep lunges challenging when doing them without weight becomes too easy.

  • Lunges - Stability Ball

    This develops leg strength as well as arm and core strength while you work one leg at a time.

  • Squats - Resistance Tube

    Standing on the tube adds more resistance than just your body weight alone. You can make it even more challenging by shortening the length of the tube.

  • Squats - Machine

    Very similar to a free-standing squat, this machine allows you to load the weight on your legs without your upper body holding the weight. It also provides back support therefore encourages good posture, reducing risk of injury by having improper form.

  • Squats - Free Weight

    If you can do 15 squats with ease, add weight by holding dumbbells to increase the intensity.
