Let’s face it – developing your leg muscles can be a challenge. Even if you’re simply aiming for more toned legs, creating significant change in the legs’ large muscle groups needs regular work and commitment. However, it’s not all doom and gloom – there are plenty of workouts out there that can help you develop those toned legs you’ve always wanted.

With that in mind, we obviously went straight to our favourite PT, Caroline Idiens (@carolinescircuits), who recently went viral on Instagram, to give us the best leg toning exercises., These work outs will help you take leg day to another level level and without even hitting the gym – all our exercises can be done in your house. Home workouts have a variety of clear benefits, but the big one is discipline and commitment changes. When you have to drive to the gym, it’s easy to get put off and settle for the easy option.
