Bodybuilding Workout For Beginners: Legs
When taking up bodybuilding, it’s easy to begin focusing on your upper body and forget about your legs. So much of everything that we do during the day relies on our legs though, so it’s important to build up your leg muscles and avoid an upper and lower body imbalance.

This bodybuilding workout for beginners will focus just on your legs. The three moves in this workout are:

1) Calf Raises
2) Squats
3) Stationary Lunges (both legs)

Do 10 reps of each move at a weight where the last few reps are challenging, but still allow you to keep proper form. Stick to 1 set of each move to start with. Once you start feeling like you are completing this workout without much challenge build in an additional set of each move. After you are doing two sets of each move and the workout is no longer a challenge, increase the weight you are lifting a little bit (2.5 to 5 lbs) to make sure you are always challenging the muscle. Remember to not go too heavy though so you can ensure you keep your form!

Do this workout twice a week, giving your muscles plenty of time to recover between workouts. This recovery is when your muscles are reconditioning to be ready for more lifting.
