When it comes to bulking up your lower body, there are two exercises that'll never steer you wrong—squats and lunges. This straightforward, mass-building routine takes those two exercises to the next level by introducing a barbell into the mix.

A series of barbell front squats, barbell reverse and forward lunges, and a finishing set of bodyweight squats (to give your legs just a little bit of rest) will stack size onto your quads, glutes, and hamstrings. Incorporate this routine into your weekly regimen and say goodbye to scrawny legs. 

Directions

You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've finished all exercises, rest for 60 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 5 to 8 rounds.

Depending upon your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest period. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
