5 Leg Muscle-Building Exercises
Attention over-30s. Age-related muscle loss is serious.
Harvard Health Publishing says you lose 3% to 5% every decade after 30. This can make daily activities harder.
So pledge to maintain muscular mass as you age. It's never too late to start; being active, strong, & healthy is the finest present you can offer yourself.
We found five bodyweight leg workouts for you. Move! Your leg muscles do a lot. They offer full leg rotation & extension, according to WebMD.
They bend knees & point toes. As you age, strong leg muscles improve balance & avoid falls & accidents.
Stefania Xytakis, a Fyt personal trainer, shared five leg-building exercises with us. Best? No equipment needed—just your bodyweight! Xytakis says, "These are useful since they consider all sides of the leg & its many muscles.
Isometric, power, & normal-paced exercises are included. You can adjust every activity to your mood.
Running afterward helps you chill down & integrate the activities."
Repeat each exercise for 60 seconds on & 30 seconds off. A 200-meter run completes this workout.
