Every guy carries weight differently. Some tend to pack on pounds around their midsection, while others get bottom-heavy after missing a few weeks at the gym. However your weight is distributed, this workout is ideal for adding plenty of muscle to your legs—all while burning serious calories all over.

You'll feel an intense lower-body muscle burn in your glutes and quads with back-to-back rounds of ice skater hops, knee tucks, and forward lunges. Finish off the workout by targeting your glutes, as well as your core, with a plank glute raise hold.

Incorporate this routine into your fitness regimen, and pretty soon it'll be your quads—not your waistline—that's pushing your jeans to the limit.


You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've finished all exercises, rest for 30 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 10 rounds.

Depending upon your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest period. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
