Unleash the Power Within: Transform Your Legs and Glutes with our Leg & Glute Explosion Workout

Regardless of their level of activity, most women’s quadriceps are stronger than their hamstrings and glutes. Consider your average lower-body workout; the quads are used in most movements. Don’t be afraid to work your legs twice a week if you know they need it.

Focus on the areas of your legs that are the weakest. There’s no need for you to isolate your quads with exercises. Compound exercises like squats and lunges provide them with adequate exercise. Destroy your hamstrings and glutes to make them stronger and more symmetrical to match your quadriceps.

Perform each of these exercises in a set, pausing only long enough to catch your breath before moving on to the next set. If you want to build and define, use a heavy weight; if you want to maintain and chisel, use a moderately heavy weight.

1. Dumbbell Sumo Squat:

In order to keep your heels on the ground and your weight centered, draw your shoulders back and down.

How to:

  • Stand with your legs double shoulder-width apart, legs turned out from your hips.
  • Hold a dumbbell with both hands in front of you, arms straight, and draw your shoulders back.
  • Bend your knees, tracking them over your toes as you lower into a deep squat.
  • When your hip crease breaks parallel, rise back to the start and squeeze your glutes at the top.

2. Bulgarian Split Squat:

Don’t pitch forward with your upper body; stand up tall and straight to best work your glutes.

How to:

  • Hold a set of dumbbells at your sides and stand several feet away from a flat bench with your back to the bench.
  • Extend one leg behind you, placing it laces down on top of the bench, and center your weight between your feet.
  • Lower until your hip is even with or slightly below your front knee and your rear knee almost touches the floor.
  • Reverse the move and rise to the start.
  • Do all reps on one side before switching.

3. Stability-Ball Wall Squat:

Your torso should stay upright the entire time. If you find you’re leaning forward, try moving the ball down a bit more between the wall and your back at the start.

How to:

  • Place a stability ball between a wall and your mid-back and step your feet forward about a foot so you can see your toes in front of your knees if you look down.
  • Hold a set of dumbbells at your sides and stand tall so your torso is vertical.
  • Bend your knees and roll the ball down the wall, descending until your thighs are parallel to the floor.
  • Reverse the move and rise to the start, squeezing your glutes at the top.

4. Bench-Assisted Sissy Squat:

The only thing moving for this exercise should be your knees, bending and flexing like they would in a leg-extension machine.

How to:

  • Stand next to an upright bench and grasp it with your nearest hand.
  • Shift your hips forward while keeping your back straight and rise up off your heels slightly.
  • Your body should make a straight line from your knees to your head.
  • Maintain this straight line as you bend your knees and lower them toward the floor in front of you slowly, levering on the balls of your feet until your shins are about parallel to the floor.
  • Reverse the move and rise back to the start.

5. Jump Squat:

Think of yourself as a spring, coiling and exploding with each repetition. Try to string the reps together evenly, and remember to breathe.

How to:

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, toes turned out about 10 degrees.
  • Lower into a deep squat where your hip crease comes below your knees, and reach your arms forward.
  • Explode up out of that squat and leap into the air as high as you can, throwing your arms backward and generating as much upward force as you can.
  • Land softly and repeat right away.

6. Switch lunge:

This move is pretty aerobic, so remember to breathe and rest enough so that you’re fully recovered before starting your next set.

How to:

  • Stand with your feet in a wide split stance with your arms reaching straight forward from your shoulders.
  • Bend your knees and lower into a deep lunge, keeping your forward knee over your toes and your torso erect.
  • Explode out of that deepest point, leaping into the air and switching lead legs at your apex.
  • Land with your opposite leg forward and go immediately into the next repetition.

7. Sprint:

How to:

  • Set up two cones 25 meters apart in a wide open space.
  • Stand next to one cone with one foot forward, one foot back, up on your toes and ready to explode out of the “blocks.”
  • Sprint as fast as you can, pumping your arms and driving forward with your knees to speed from one cone to the other.
  • Walk and catch your breath, then repeat.
