Home Gymnastics Conditioning Leg Workout

Who said you can’t crush a home leg workout? Different workouts should reflect different goals. In this case, this workout is for leg conditioning- muscle endurance and fat burning as opposed to building strength ands size. So, there are different ways to build leg strength and there are different types of strength. This workout  builds muscle endurance- building up your legs ability to last through explosive movements as in floor routines and tumbling series. Check out Simone Biles gold winning olympic floor routine here as an example.

Whats the benefit for you? Well, for starters, as a stand alone workout, you will have the benefit of shredding your legs so you get get that long, lean muscular look to the muscles in your legs. Add in strength workouts in the gym to maximize your aesthetics.  Conditioning and strength training lets you have the best of both worlds. Conditioning adds detail to your muscles, while strength training adds size and and shred.

For an added fat shredding, metabolic boosting,  add 10 minutes of rebounding  either before or after the workout (rebounding is basically jumping on a mini trampoline which you can purchase on amazon).
