Leg Day Workout for Beginners

Snap Fitness

If you’re starting a workout routine, it’s crucial to have a leg day. It’s an easy day to skip, but it’s arguably the most important muscle group to train.


From grabbing a box of macaroni and cheese off the top shelf at the grocery store to picking up clothes in your laundry room, your legs are involved in countless daily movements. There are several solid ways to tone your legs in the gym. Since your legs are constantly supporting the rest of your body, it takes more time and effort to develop muscle – so don’t get discouraged if you don’t see results right away. Stay focused and the hard work will pay off!


Here’s a leg day routine for beginners:

Warm-up: Five-minutes of low-intensity cardio (walk or jog) and stretching

Squats – three sets of 10 repetitions

Stationary lunge – three sets of 10 repetitions

Leg extension – two sets of 10 repetitions

Leg curl – two sets of 10 repetitions

Cool-down: Five minutes of abs and stretching
