If you don’t have a gym membership (or if you have a gym membership but never use it), these reasons for not getting a lean legs workout in probably sound pretty familiar.
“I’m too busy.”
“Gyms are expensive.”
“I’m intimidated by those exercise machines.”
“It’s inconvenient to have to dress for and drive to the gym for a workout.”
Well, we have some great news for you! You don’t need a gym membership to build strong, lean legs.
Here are 5 easy lean legs exercises you can do even while you walk your dog.
(If you don’t have a dog, that’s fine, too!)
You can get these exercises done while on a short walk around the neighborhood. All of these exercises target and tone the muscles in your legs and glutes.

In addition to looking better, building muscle helps your body burn fat.
Adding simple and effective exercises like these to your Personal Trainer meal program will help you reach your weight loss goals!
Lean Legs Workout Fit Tips:
1. High Knees
Stand with your feet hip-width apart. As you walk forward, drive your knee toward your chest and bring it back to the ground in a controlled motion. Alternate this movement between both legs.
2. Walking Lunges
Begin with your feet shoulder-width apart. Step forward with one leg and descend your hips until the rear leg is roughly an inch or so off the ground. Lean slightly forward to engage more glute activation. Push through the heel of the front leg, bringing the rear leg parallel to the leg in front. Keep core engaged through entire motion. Alternate with each step.
3. Forward Jump Squats
Begin with your feet positioned shoulder-width apart, your head up, and your back neutral. Keep your chest up as you push through the ball of your feet and jump forward. Core should be engaged through entire movement.
4. Single Leg Romanian Deadlift
Begin with one leg a step ahead of the other. With a neutral spine, bend slowly at the hip extending your free leg behind you, as your arms lower toward your toe. Pushing through the heel of your stable leg, return to the upright position. Be sure not to engage core to prevent you from rounding your back during this exercise.
5. Walking Calf Raises
Begin with your feet positioned hip-width apart, and toes pointed straight in front of you. Raise the heels off the ground as you roll onto the ball of your foot. Briefly hold this contraction, and then lower your heels back down.
