Best leg exercises for men

Five of the best leg workouts for men include squatting, climbing stairs, wall sits, calf stretches, and front lunges. All these are good leg exercises which can be done at home. 1. Squatting Squatting is ideal for the thighs as well as the calves. The person’s feet are placed together just as if the he was sitting on a chair. The hips are then taken down without actually resting them on the floor, as if the chair were removed. The knees are held together with the help of the arms’ strength. Of course, the person would have to bend forward slightly to maintain the balance. 2. Climbing stairs A similar effect is achieved on the thighs while climbing the stairs, though not while getting down. Nevertheless, it helps to climb up and down two to three flights of stairs, four to five times each day. Many cardiologists also recommend this and one should not use elevators if possible. 3. Wall sits Another best leg exercises for men is wall sits. The wall sits were once used as a form of punishment. They are a great way to exercise thighs. Here, the man has to stand straight against the wall and try to slide down till a position similar to sitting on a chair, but without actually having a chair, is achieved. 4. Calf stretches For calf stretches, the person can try sitting on the floor with legs stretched straight in front. Two ends of a towel are held with two hands across one foot. The hands try to pull the foot towards the body, while the calves try to push the towel away. 5. Front Lunges In front lunges, at first both legs are together. Then a large stride is taken by one leg. This leg in the front is then bent at the knee such that it forms a 90 degree angle at the knee joint. Now the person should try to touch the knee of the leg behind on to the floor. One can choose leg exercises for men without weights or with weights. The number of times such exercises are done should be increased gradually, but one should try to do them regularly.
