It is not surprising that to have well-formed legs you need to push yourself really hard. If you are not going to win a marathon or achieve any other athletic goal you should have strong legs to lead a full life.

You need to be able to do simple things such as walk, dance or lift your laundry bag as all these easy things require having a strong core and legs. Luckily you do not have to buy an expensive gym membership as you can perform effective leg exercises at home.

There is a variety of leg moves that you can add to your training routine in order to work your leg muscles and improve your stamina. We want to show you some bodyweight exercises created by Jess Sims.

Jess Sims, a NASM-certified personal trainer at the Fhitting Room and Shadowbox in New York says, "Bodyweight moves help to strengthen muscles that we use in our everyday life and build new wonderful habits that can improve our health and endurance."

Bodyweight exercises can be performed anywhere and at any time as you do not need to buy any special expensive equipment. Use the weight of your own body in order to perform these effective leg exercises.

This no-equipment leg-training routine consists of effective exercises such as bodyweight squats, reverse lunges with knee lifts, plié squat calf raises, squat jumps, high knee toe taps, side lunges, single-leg calf raises, curtsy lunges, pistol squats and inner thigh leg raises.

Scroll down to see how to perform them correctly to get awesome results in no time. By using these leg exercises you will build strength and define your muscles.
