Best Kettlebell Exercises to Grow Your Legs

1. Goblet 1-1/4 Cyclist Squat

  • 10-15 reps
  • 3-4 sets

The cyclist position means you will have your heels elevated. “The 1 and a quarter squat is when you perform a full repetition on the way down, come up about a quarter to half of the way up in the repetition, return to the bottom and then explode up,” Filly says.

2. Rear Foot Elevated Hand-Support Split Squat

  • 10-12 reps
  • 3 sets

This puts a tremendous amount of work on the forward leg.

3. Pistol Squat on Elevated Surface

  • 6-8 reps per leg
  • 2-3 sets

If the pistol squat is too difficult for you, you can work on some regression variations such as the lateral box step down or tall box step up.

This is definitely a glute exercise, however, it will help increase the size of your legs.
