LEG DAY: 5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD STOP SKIPPING YOUR LEG WORKOUT
Don’t skip leg day – sound familiar?
Maybe you think your leg workouts aren’t that important or that your legs are already “strong enough”. Or maybe you just don’t feel like exercising your legs. Before you make the wrong decision – we have five reasons why you shouldn’t forget about training your lower body.
5 Benefits of Leg Training – DON’T MISS IT – 10 MIN Toned & Strong Legs
These five benefits should motivate you to train your legs every week:
1. YOU TRAIN CARDIO & CORE.
Many leg exercises are compound movements, which means they target many muscle groups. Squats, for example, work your quads, hamstrings, glutes, inner and outer thighs, but they also activate your core! Plus, lower body exercises also get your heart rate up, so you can do a little cardio while you strength train – a real time saver.
2. STRONG LEGS = BETTER RUNNING PERFORMANCE
Well-trained legs not only give you a strong back and core, but also the stability you need for good running form. A strong lower body will also help you in other sports, such as swimming or cycling – both excellent forms of cross-training for runners.
3. LEG TRAINING HELPS YOU LOSE WEIGHT
Your leg muscles are the largest muscle group in your body. The more you exercise them, the more energy it takes to move them. This means that no matter what activity you do – whether it’s a leisurely walk or an intense bodyweight workout – you’ll automatically burn more calories.
But it’s not just strong leg muscles that help you lose weight, it’s the leg workout itself: Like most strength training, leg workouts produce a great after-burn effect. You can also do your leg workout at home.
