12 Exercises to Tone Your Legs at Home


This is a highly effective leg workout routine that can be performed in the comfort of your own home, without having to visit a gym. However, it does utilize a few pieces of basic fitness equipment that can generally be found in any home gym.

The 12 At Home Leg Day Workout is designed to tighten and tone the entire lower body through by utilizing both large and small muscle groups such as the calves quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes. This is a fairly long routine, involves split squats, dumbbell deadlifts, dumbbell squat thrusts, goblet squats, jump squats, standing dumbbell calf raises, Swiss ball knee tucks, dumbbell lunges, dumbbell side lunges, single leg squats and rope jumping.

Through the use of both static and dynamic moves this routine will definitely provide results if performed on a consistent basis. By utilizing basic fitness equipment, such as dumbbells, a Swiss ball, a sturdy chair and a jump rope, you can burn an incredible amount of calories and strengthen the entire lower body. But utilizing compound movements, such as performing overhead presses after a squat, you are in burning more calories than of performing these moves alone.

When performing any of these moves, it is important to maintain proper form in order to reduce the chance of injury.
