LOWER BODY DEMONSTRATION WORKOUT VIDEO
Here are a list of lower body exercises for building muscle with no weights
Sissy Squats ( building muscle with no weights part 3)
These are anything but sissy and can be used at the beginning and at the end of the same workout. The sissy squat will activate the whole of your quad muscle from above the knee cap to the outer upper area.
We would advise a rep range of 15 reps. The art of this exercise is to get up high on your toes and go as low down on each rep. Start with 2 sets of 15 reps at the beginning of your session and finish of with 1-2 sets at the end of your workout.

Book Squats ( building muscle with no weights part 3)
The reason why this exercise is included is that it can be performed in 2 different ways to focus on either the quad muscles or the glutes and hamstrings. In the video you will notice that instead of driving straight up, I am pushing out on the way up, this throw the emphasis on the hamstrings and glutes. Perform 2 sets of 15 reps in this fashion and 1 set of 15 reps driving straight up for the quads.
Crab Knee Lifts ( building muscle with no weights part 3)
Great exercise which works the lower back, hamstrings and glutes. The secret to this exercise is to keep the glutes as high as possible throughout the exercise. Start with 2 sets of 10-15 reps per leg. We also have an advance crab knee lift exercise video below for those of you who find the first exercise just too easy.
