Today's Workout 24: The bodyweight circuit for stronger legs

You don't need any equipment to build strength and power in your lower body.

There's no two ways about it—this workout is simple, yet demanding. Better yet? You can do it pretty much anywhere.

You'll fire up the legs with traditional jump squats and seated jump squats—which may seem easier, but are definitely not. Give your lower body a (little) bit of a rest with a finishing round of pushups that'll demand effort from your core and chest.

Aside from helping you grow massive quads and glutes, this workout will prove to you that sometimes the simplest things are the toughest to master. 


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 5 to 10 rounds.

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