Since we’re in the middle of summer in much of the world, there’s no better time to take your leg workout outside, and no better place to build super strong, powerful legs than the beach.
Check out today’s video above for some of my favorite leg exercises that you can do to get strong and explosive with zero equipment. Give them a try next time you’re at the beach and get ready to feel the burn!
Stand straight, then squat down and jump explosively as far forward as you can. Repeat, trying to go as far as possible.
Ninja Tuck Jumps
Kneel down, then brace your core, sit back slightly, then thrust your hips as you jump your legs up so that the bottom of your feet are on ground and your body is in a deep squat position. Immediately do a tuck jump, bringing your knees towards your chest. Return to the kneeling position and repeat.
Start in a lunge position with your back knee touching or almost touching the floor.
Jump up explosively and switch legs so that your rear leg is in the front and front leg is in the rear
Repeat as fast as you can.
Speed Skater Lunges
Stand in a side lunge position with one leg bent parallel to the floor and the other leg straight to the side. Jump up explosively as you switch legs. Now the previously straight leg will be bent and the previously bent leg will be straight to the other side. Try and keep your core tight and stay as low as possible as you switch sides as fast as you can.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, then jump up as high as you can, tucking your knees into your chest. Land and repeat immediately, trying not to pause between jumps.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, then squat down so that your thighs are parallel to the floor. Jump up as explosively as you can. Land in a squat position and repeat.
Run as fast as you possibly can.
