Daily Fit 4/4/19: How To Get Strong Legs Fast
Wellness Tip Of The Day: Do single leg deadlifts to strengthen and tone the backs of your legs.
How To Do Them: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your hands on your hips. Shift your weight onto your right foot and bend your left leg in front of you with your knee at hip-height. Fire your right glutes as you hinge forward slowly at the hip joint, reaching both hands toward the ground as you extend your left leg straight out behind you. Pause there, and then return to standing. That’s one rep. Complete 10-15 reps on each side. For added resistance, hold your free weights of choice in your hands reaching toward the floor throughout the exercise.
Why They Work: The standard deadlift is already one of our go-to exercises because it’s incredibly effective in engaging your core, glutes
