Yes! A leg workout that can be achieved within 5-15 mins. Training legs should be challenging but achievable, so don’t let the word “easy”, deceive you. You need to stimulate your leg muscle fibres to want to change. Otherwise, change, will not happen.
For this workout, adding or using a weight is optional. If you don’t have any weights, a large water bottle or an object heavy enough to create resistance.
Caution: Not to be done if you suffer from osteoarthritis or osteoporosis where high impact increases the risk of bone fractures and over flexion of joints.
Aim for 2-3 x per week. If you are returning back to exercise or new to exercise, Start with 5 mins (1) round, and build up over time. Do a nice steady warm up before you begin.
