Top 10 Exercise for Legs at Home

Exercise for legs at home can be done 2 times a week—you can mark two days as “leg exercise days” with a gap of 2 days in between. For example, your leg workouts can be either on Mondays and Thursdays, Tuesdays and Fridays or Wednesdays and Saturdays.

People nowadays prefer workouts at home, with no equipment or minimal equipment like a pair or two of dumbbells, mainly for two reasons: one, to avoid “germy” gym and two, no time to go to the gym. The other reasons could be (1) you can wear whatever you feel like, (2) listen to your kind of music, (3) non-usage of any equipment, (4) work out any time you want—you are not bound by timings, (5) you can concentrate on your workout—no one to disturb you as it happens in a gym.

The following top 10 exercise for legs at home are also thigh toning exercises. The intention is obviously to lose leg fat (mainly from inner and outer thighs and give your legs a toned sexy shape!). I have mentioned the reps for each circuit—you will do #1 to #10 in a circuit; then rest for 60 sec; repeat the circuit once. From the 2nd month, just do #1 to #10 circuit once.

You should also check out our Workouts section for more exercises.

Important: If you feel that you cannot do #1 to #10 without any rest and you need to rest, then after each exercise, rest for 15 sec. This is just in the beginning. After about 15 days, you will not rest between each exercise.

The videos will clearly guide you on how to do each exercise correctly. Remember that perfect form and posture is important.

Conclusion

Exercising at home does not mean you are going to feel lazy and leave it for the next day. I have seen many people who sound excited as they start workout at home; after 10 or 15 days, they go lazy and slack. Give another 10 days, and they give up!

While doing exercise for legs at home, do not leave any exercise half done. Find out a time when you know you will not be disturbed and you can workout rigorously. REMEMBER that you have to give time to your health if you want to stay lean and fit.
