1000 Killer Reps at Home to Get Rid of Thunder Thighs

Learn to Love Leg Day

What do a lot of people want when they first start working out? Fast results. Plain and simple. This workout will allow you to get fast results when it comes to better-looking legs.

Is it going to be easy? No. In fact, this workout is going to suck. The beauty of this workout is that it can be done on your own time throughout the day.

1000 reps is a lot to do all at once. You have to go at your own pace for this workout or else you’ll end up burning yourself out and might not be able to walk about half way through. Make sure you take as much time as you need between each exercise. Once you start this workout, there is no turning back. Make sure you get through it as difficult as it may be.

Here is the workout:

  • 100 Deadlifts
  • 50 Side Lunges – Left
  • 50 Side Lunges – Right
  • 200 Squats
  • 100 Bridges
  • 50 Curtsy Lunges – Left
  • 50 Curtsy Lunges – Right
  • 50 Reverse Lunges – Left
  • 50 Reverse Lunges – Right
  • 100 Sumo Squats
  • 50 Donkey Kicks – Right
  • 50 Donkey Kicks – Left
  • 100 Switch Lunges

Deadlifts

For beginners, I would recommend doing this without any weight just so you can get used to the movement. Sometimes it can be difficult for some people to have the right form with this exercise, especially when weight is added.

When you start to lift up, you should put all your weight on your heels so your hamstrings are doing most of the work. The straighter you can keep your legs throughout this movement, the more effective it’s going to be for your body.

Side Lunges

This exercise is going to work your inner and outer thighs. When you step out, you are forcing the outer part of your thigh to do all the work to stabilize your body. When you push back up, you are forcing your inner thigh to do all the work.

Squats

A classic exercise that develops a good base for everybody, squats should be included into any leg workout.

With squats, you are giving your glutes one of the best workouts possible. Who doesn’t love having a better butt? Women and men alike love having a rock hard booty.

Bridges

Lifting your pelvic bone as high as you can off the ground during this exercise is going to force your glutes to contract and flex, building a better booty. You are also giving your hamstrings a good workout. This shows you how weak your hamstrings really are.

You may start to feel your legs get wobbly from such a simple movement, but that’s how you know you are improving your muscles and getting those better looking legs.

Curtsy Lunges

Since there hasn’t been a lot of focus on your quads up to now, this exercise will start putting those to work. We’ve all seen somebody curtsy and that’s exactly what this exercise is. It’s the same thing, but maybe just a little more controlled.

Reverse Lunges

Instead of going forward with the lunge, you bring your leg back. A lot of the focus is on your hamstrings and quads. Building these muscles is crucial when you are trying to get the best-looking legs possible.

Sumo Squats

Instead of focusing more on the glutes, the sumo squat will put a lot of focus on your inner thighs and quads. Form is important because with poor form, you could seriously hurt your back, regardless of whether you do this exercise with weight or not.

Donkey Kicks

Don’t think that this exercise is going to be easy on your legs. This will build your glutes and in a hurry. Keeping your legs at a 90-degree angle and getting the full extension will allow you to get the most out of this exercise.

Switch Lunges

At this point of the workout, you may feel like your legs are dead. They very well might be. This exercise can go very quickly compared to the others when you push yourself through it. Switch lunges are going to work all the muscles above your knee. The perfect way to finish this workout.

Conclusion

1000 reps is a lot for anybody regardless of your fitness level. This is why you should take as much rest as you need in between each exercise. This isn’t a quick workout so make sure you have a pretty good amount of free time when you start it.

Your legs will get tired during this workout, but the pain is worth the results. To get the sexy legs you desire, you have to push yourself to new limits and deal with the pain.
