You don’t need to head to the gym, or invest in expensive equipment, to get a good leg workout. All you need is about six feet of free space and a few sets of dumbbells.
Here’s a quick list of the best dumbbell leg exercises, and a few leg workouts you can do at home.
Why Add Dumbbells To Workouts?
Adding light dumbbells to one of your favorite workouts is an easy way to increase the intensity, and even shorten your workout due to the extra calorie burn. Using dumbbells can also help build muscle mass at a faster rate, which will have an influence on how many calories you’re burning throughout the day.
The more muscle you’re able to build, the more calories your body will need to burn each day to maintain that mass.
Keep in mind, adding dumbbells is intended to slightly increase the intensity. This isn’t a maximum test of strength to see how much weight you can move without hitting yourself in the head.
Dumbbell Leg Workout Tips
Choose The Right Weight. You should be reaching fatigue with each exercise right around 10-12 reps. If you’re tiring too quickly, reduce the weight.
Take A Day Off. We all want the fastest results possible, but if you’re experiencing significant soreness it’s better to rest an extra day and limit the risk of injury.
