Using body weight exercises is one of the most effective ways of burning out your legs. Many weight lifters suffer from the top-heavy syndrome. Their upper body is extremely developed yet their legs are little chicken sticks. Using the Best Bodyweight Leg Routine twice a week will add some bulk to your lower half and give you the ability to jump over small homes and kick down locked doors. Ok, maybe not the last couple, but I haven’t done this routine for years on end so just it might just be true, O ye of little faith!

*If you are looking for another true leg challenge, here’s a great one. It’s called the Bodyweight Squats Muscular Endurance 5-Minute Challenge. It’s a killer.

Bodyweight Leg Routine Description

The Insane No-Weight Leg Routine incorporates 9 Extreme Leg Exercises in a way that is designed to totally fatigue your legs. You will do the the first three exercises to maximum fatigure, then rest for 30 seconds then go into the next three exercises, then rest for 30 seconds, and finally finish up the last 3. The 30 seconds in between the three sets are the ONLY times you are resting during this exercise workout. The point is to burn out your legs. Remember to keep track of your total reps, mark it down in the Downloadable Routine and work toward completing more reps the next time around.

    Hey Todd!
    Another epic workout! Totally loved it! As a finisher I also added 25 jumpsquats and 60 seconds of wall-sit. Thanks! I was looking for a good routine for the legs as I need to add strength.

      Hey Aaron,

      Yes, burn them out completely. Must go to full fatigue.
