2 exercises followed by a lot of pain…

This brutal 6 minute leg workout might be just what you need to increase your lower body power.

Don’t ever skip leg day again when you are at the gym. If you are short on time, this could be the answer. It is a brutal 6 minute leg workout, but you will be glad it is only for 6 minutes. The workout was created by Jeff Cavaliere.

Jeff Cavaliere was the head physical therapist of the New York Mets for 3 years and is now a YouTube sensation. He delivers clear information without noise on his ATHLEAN-X YouTube channel.

In one of his videos uploaded, Jeff explained his brutal 6 minute leg workout. And the beauty of it, according to him, is that it is only 2 exercises, but that does not mean you will not be sore.

In fact, the whole point of this brutal 6 minute leg workout is that you will feel your lower body depleted in just a few minutes.

Brutal 6 Minute Leg Workout

You will perform 10 reps of the first exercise followed by 10 reps of the second exercise. After that, perform 8 reps of the first exercise and 8 reps of exercise number 2. Keep lowering the reps to 6, 4, and eventually 2 reps of each exercise.

According to Jeff, it should take you around 5 minutes of work to do all reps and you have an extra minute to shift between one exercise and the other.

He does not specify the amount of weight he is lifting on each barbell, but know that you will be doing a total of 30 back squats and 30 stiff-legged deadlifts with some holding under tension at the end of each set.

Exercise 1

  • Back Squat

Take 3 seconds to descend to a deep squat and one second to go back up. Perform 10 reps in the first round, 8 reps for the second round, 6, 4 and 2 reps for the final round.

After the round is finished, you will hold the position at the bottom for 10 seconds, go back up and rack the bar. Do this every time after each round is finished.
