The best... LEGS WORKOUT
‘Single-leg work is often neglected, but it shouldn’t be because it ensures balanced growth and strength gains,’ says trainer Shivam Patel. ‘This workout focuses on the glutes and hamstrings, which are key for strength and power in sports. It attacks fast-twitch and slow-twitch muscles fibres, as well as working on cardio.’ Do as many circuits as you can in 20 minutes, trying not to rest. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart with your toes under the bar. Squat and take hold of the bar just outside your shins. Push through your heels and pull the weight up your body, driving your hips forwards. Lower under control. Aim to use your bodyweight on the bar, but go lighter if you’re inexperienced.
