A simple way to get your lower body in great shape is to move your calisthenics to the park and opt for a street workout. If you choose the right lower body exercises and execute them properly, you will have no problem getting the strength, tone and shape you want. While squatting is certainly a viable street workout, adding variety can spice things up and more effectively target your hamstrings, quads, adductors, lower abs and glutes.
The muscles in your lower body serve important functions. They impact your ability to bend, lift, walk, balance, stand and sit.
