Leg Exercise Videos
Tone and strengthen your legs with these key leg
exercise videos. Even if you perform a lot of cardio and don't want your
legs to get bigger, this page is for you.
Resistance leg exercises are essential for most people's
regardless of fitness goals. Since the lower body including the glutes,
hamstrings, quadriceps, calves, inner and outer thighs account for around 50% of
the average person's muscle mass, leg exercises are the most effective
resistance training exercises for increasing the metabolism.
Overall calorie consumption is always going to determine whether you lose or
gain weight, so performing what you see in these leg exercise videos will give
you the most "bang for your buck." Cardio exercise is always going to burn more
calories than weight training for the duration of exercise but resistance
training leg exercises are a potent stimulator of the metabolism, not to mention
they will help you get great looking legs.
Where are the Leg
Exercise Videos that Isolate Single Muscles?
Sure there are
butt exercises which put more
emphasis on the glutes, but for the most part, all the leg exercise videos you
will see below do a pretty good job at hitting the majority of the lower
body muscle mass. Most of the people you see using the weights machines popular in
the gym such as the adduction/abduction machine for the inner/outer thigh, and
hamstrings curls, are doing them because they are trying to spot reduce fat.
Spot reduction is actually one of the
common fitness myths. Doing exercises which recruit as much of your lower
body's muscles as possible are almost always going to be the preferred
exercises. Exceptions are those who are really trying to build and bulk a
specific muscle and those who need to strengthen specific muscles due to
muscle imbalances or injuries.
