Strong legs play a key factor not only in many sports but in everyday life. Working muscles like your quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings and calves will increase your leg strength for everyday activities like going up stairs, walking up hill, balancing and more advanced movements such as sprinting, stepping and jumping.
There is a vast range of exercises you can administer to increase your leg strength. Some of these include:
Squats: incorporate muscles such as the quadriceps, glutes and hamstrings.
Dead Lift: uses the hamstrings and glutes as their main muscle movers.
Lunges: activate the quadriceps and glutes as well as hamstrings as the main muscles worked.
Calf raise: uses the calves and tibialis anterior.
Try and incorporate these 4 lifts into your weekly routine if you’re not already.
