Make Your Legs Bigger With This Lower Body Dropset Workout

You don’t need to have spent much time in the fitness scene to have heard the apparent golden rule of the weight room: never skip leg day. On second thought, that’s a good rule.

But, if you’re short on time, working with limited equipment, or unsure where to start, stage day can seem like a daunting proposition; which is precisely why we developed this low-kit, high-performance leg day glove.

This 250-rep dumbbell leg burner is the perfect low-tech lower body finisher, or a rapid-fire quad burner for those days when time isn’t on your side.

Grab a pair of moderately weighted dumbbells or kettlebells, find some space, and after a thorough warm-up, do five rounds of our pant-stretching pot. Rest just as needed to ensure clean form, but keep it punchy: your legs and lungs should be working here.

3. Overhead squat x 25

Drop your remaining bell and continue squatting with just your body weight. Take a deep breath and find a rhythm. Stand up straight (A), keep your chest up and thrust your hips back, before bending your knees to drop your thighs until they are at least parallel to the floor (B). Back up and repeat.
