Top 6 Killer Calisthenics Leg Workout *No Equipment Needed


I love training legs. I am feeling good after leg day.

Pain is evitable, but pain creates the result.

What are the benefits of the Calisthenics Leg Exercises


Healthy joints

Strong legs

Lean body

Mobile body

Can you get stronger without weight?

Ummmm....I, personally, still believe barbell squat is the best tool to get stronger. However, you still can train your legs outside the gym with your own bodyweight.

Don't underestimate the bodyweight exercises.

They are not easy at all.

I am sure many untrained people cannot do single squat with slow tempo and good form.

What is the prime muscle of leg development?


Glutes are the engine of our body.

If you cannot keep your balance, it is due to the weak glutes.

What are the rules of building fantastic physique?

1. Training frequency

Train more!

If you only train legs x 1 session a week, then add 2 more sessions.

Train x 2 times at the gym

Train x 1 time at the outdoor

2. Diet

If you want to get a lean body, do calories deficit. Control what you put into your mouth.

Eat adequate protein. About your bodyweight in lb.

And control carb intake.

Leg day: more carbs.

If you want to get stronger, you should eat little more calories and adequate protein and carbs.

3. Recovery

Sleep is the secret weapon of building a great physique. Period.

4. Program Design

Day 1: Upper body

Day 2: Lower body

Day 3: Rest

Day 4: Upper body

Day 5: Lower body

Day 6: Rest
