6 min Leg Day Workout!


Focusing on your legs is really important because many “leg moves” are compound moves which mean they focus on multiple body parts at once.  For example, squats work your quads, hamstrings, glutes, inner and outer thighs, but they also really activate your core if you are doing them properly and driving your weight through your heels. Strong legs also helps improve your running performance, prevents lower back pain and reduces your risk of lower back injuries.


Below is a quick 6 min leg workout for you to try.  If you need, do each exercise for 50 sec then rest for 10 sec, or try to do without rest!  If you want a longer workout, aim for 3-4 rounds and if you have a set of weights, add these in the mix for a more intense workout!

  • 1 min wall sit
  • 30 sec left leg deadlift
  • 30 sec right leg deadlift
  • 1 min squats (add jump if you can)
  • 1 min glute bridge (single leg if you can – 30 sec each side)
  • 1 min walking lunges
  • 1 min wall sit
