6 Leg Workouts: Strengthen. Injury Prevention Stability

Squats: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and lower your body by bending your knees and pushing your hips back as if you're sitting into a chair.

Lunges: Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart. Take a step forward with one foot and lower your body until both knees are bent at a 90-degree angle, with your back knee hovering just above the ground.

Deadlifts: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and hold a barbell or dumbbells in front of your thighs with an overhand grip.

Calf Raises: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and lift your heels off the ground as high as possible, then lower them back down.

Step-Ups: Stand in front of a sturdy bench or step with your feet hip-width apart. Step up onto the bench with one foot, pressing through your heel to lift your body up.

Single-Leg Balance Exercises: Stand on one leg with your knee slightly bent and engage your core for balance. Hold this position for 30-60 seconds, then switch to the other leg.
