Your leg muscles are big, which is one reason barbell exercises like the back squat and the leg press and leg curl weight machines feature heavily in most leg workouts. But you don’t need a working knowledge of the squat rack or an active gym membership to build leg strength, you just need a pair of dumbbells (heavy ones, but still).

Don’t believe us? Then try this six-move routine posted on TikTok by Kirra O’Brien, trainer and founder of Strong Sisters United who specializes in strength training for beginners. The workout will help to build strong quads and calves when the squat rack is off-limits, and all you need is a pair of dumbbells and above average tolerance of lactic acid.
