Short Effective Leg Workout

This a short routine that I have recently been doing. I call this the pain workout, because that’s exactly what it causes when you it.

Leg extension

  • 5 sets
  • 13-20 reps

1. Start with a light weight

2. Then keep on increasing the weight until failure in the last few sets.


  • 3 sets
  • 15 reps

Do full squats as opposed to squats to parallel. This is to engage the hamstrings more at the bottom of the movement and thus maximizing the results in the whole leg.

Walking Lunges

  • 3 sets
  • Unlimited steps

Your legs will be pretty beat up by this time, so I’d recommend to do this without weights.

One legged Machine Calf Raises

  • 4 sets
  • 18-20 Reps

This exercise is a favorite. All you have to do here is alternate each leg

This is a very simple leg workout, but so far it is proving effective. Give it a try and feel free to get back to me when done.
