Legs Barbell Workout

 

Hey, there Foxy Nation! This week I have a killer lower body barbell workout for you to try at the gym. Or maybe you have a barbell laying around in your garage. We are hitting the quads, hamstrings, and glutes with super traditional exercises. You don’t need to focus on isolation exercises to build lean muscle. Stick to the compound workouts!

I hope you enjoy the workout feel free to workout with me in the video below.

Squats

 

1. Start nice and tall with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart

 2. Keep your spine in a straight line by making sure you keep your head looking forward. And keep that core tight

3. Push your hips back so that your knees are at a 90-degree angle and your thighs are parallel with the ground

4. Pause for a second at the bottom of the motion and then push through your heels to bring yourself up
