Looking for Leg Workouts?

Here is a comprehensive list of leg workouts, which includes exercises for your quadriceps, hamstrings and calves.

We've also included exercises for glutes on this page since they are often worked as a secondary muscle while performing leg exercises.

Use these exercise lists as a reference guide when looking-up various exercises listed in our downloadable fitness and bodybuilding workout programs.

Once you click on each leg workouts exercise name, a new window will open where you can look at video which will show you how to perform the selected exercise.

You do not need to know all these exercises. However, you will notice that in time you will remember more and more of them. The list you see before you is a result of years of experience. Hence, it is lengthy.
