Leg Exercises

Instead of using heavy dumbbell or barbell squats, you can do:

- Bodyweight Squats (wide stance and narrow stance) and Total Body
- Split Squats and Bulgarian Split Squats (stand near a wall to use for
- Reverse Lunges, Diagonal Lunges, or Forward Lunges (make sure to hold
 your arms up in the "Prisoner" position to work your upper back, too).

Here’s another trick – if you want to make sure you don’t bulk up, you
can cut back on how many sets you do. For example, if a program calls for 3
sets, only do 1-2. That way you’ll still get lean, sexy legs, but without
the bulk.
