Eva Longoria Shares The Exact Leg Workout She Follows

If working out more was one of your New Year’s resolutions, Eva Longoria’s latest Instagram video might just be the inspiration you’ve been looking for. 

In what we can only assume accompanies her favourite form of cardio (jumping on a trampoline), Eva is back to her disciplined workout routine, but this time she’s focused on strengthening and toning her legs.

Dressed head-to-toe in a perfectly coordinating blue outfit, Eva brought her followers into her home gym as she completed her “first leg day of the year”. The quick and easy-to-follow leg workout is perfect for those who are interested in adding weights to their routine but aren’t exactly sure where to start.

So, if you’re sans personal trainer or even a gym membership, this workout is home or park-friendly. All you’ll need is a pair of dumbbells, a bench and some elastic resistance bands.

In Eva’s video, she repeats each rep between eight to 10 times, and if the exercise requires single leg sets, she will range from five to 10 sets on each leg. We recommend completing this workout three times over for a really good burn.

Here is Eva Longoria’s complete leg workout routine:

  1. Weighted squats. Using a resistance band just above the knees.
  1. Weighted curtsy lunges. Repeat on both legs.
  1. Banded crab walks. Repeat on both legs.
  1. Single leg glute bridge kicks. Elevate stationery heel onto block.
  1. Weighted hip thrusts. Use a bench to support your upper back.
  1. Cable glute kickbacks. If you don’t have access to a cable machine, use elastic resistance bands and/or ankle weights.
  1. Weighted step ups. Repeat on both legs.

  1. In the last two years I have upped my weightlifting and it is not paying off. As in my legs have become super muscular. I am dropping back the weights and going hard on the cardio. Skipping in particular works for my body type.

  2. Only yesterday, I read a Readers’ Digest article about how poor leg strength is linked to cognitive decline; but they don’t know why. I resolved to do something about it. Those weighted hip thrusts look hard, but I’m sure they’re effective.
