🚨 HOW TO PUSH & PULL & GUIDE: LEGS EXERCISES👇
🔥 One of the more popular questions I get asked is what push, pull, and legs actually means.
✅ Push muscles include your chest, triceps, and front delts whereas pull muscles include your back, biceps, traps, and rear delts. I think legs is self explanatory but just to be safe, legs include quads, glutes/hamstrings, and calves.
🚨 It’s always helpful to understand which muscles are supposed to be worked during your exercises to help get that mind muscle connection. These aren’t the only exercises that fit into each of these categories but just a few examples to give you an idea.
🚨 For even more, swipe below for a helpful post from Weighteasyloss.com showing additional exercises (although I would consider conventional deadlifts primarily a pull, not leg exercise). Keep in mind that this is not a routine. It’s simply a list of exercises that fits into each category. I do have other posts that show examples of push/pull/leg workouts though.
If you want to create your own workout, now’s your chance. Here’s a list of exercises you can do on leg day for all muscles of the leg including quads, hamstrings, glutes and calves!
✅ Just follow these simple steps for making your leg day:⠀
- PICK 1-2 EXERCISES PER BODY PART

🔗 THAT’S IT! Follow those steps and you’ll have a killer leg day to look forward to!
