Legs and glutes can seem to be the most difficult to work out at home if your used to heavy machines in the gym or seeing influencers using their resistance bands and kettlebells. However instead of purchasing a resistance band why not just make your workout more intense?
There are plenty of at home exercises for legs that don’t require any equipment and can be pulled together to create a killer set. Exercises you could try include; Kickbacks (which might need a little more space); fire hydrants are a great way to wake your glutes up and start any workout; squats, the exercise everyone is familiar with, yet one that always guarantees a burn; glute bridges which you can make even more intense by trying single leg bridges and standing abductors are the perfect way to feel a burn and replace a machine we often use in the gym.
Adding extra reps or holding a pulse for longer will add intense burn to all of the above exercises, making for a killer leg workout.
It can be super easy to create an intense workout at home with no equipment at all by upping your reps and keeping it low rest. So don’t feel the need to purchase any at home equipment this summer. You’ve got this on your own!
