Leg Workout at Home ONLY ONE DUMBBELL | Home Gym | Personal Trainer Tokyo Titan


Looking for an effective leg workout that you can do at home with just one dumbbell? Look no further! In this video, I'll show you five exercises you can do with just one dumbbell to strengthen and tone your legs. From lunges to squats to calf raises, this workout is perfect for anyone looking to build strong and lean leg muscles without leaving the house.


Exercise 1: Goblet Squat

For this exercise, you will need a heavy weight.


Hold the dumbbell close to your chest with both hands. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lower into a squat by pushing your hips back and bending your knees. Pause at the bottom and then push back up to the starting position.


This exercise more or less places an even load across all your leg muscles, making it great for the warmup as the first exercise.


Exercise 2: Reverse Lunges

Hold the dumbbell in one hand and step backwards with your opposite leg. Lower your body until the thigh on your forward leg is parallel to the ground. Pause at the bottom, then push back up to the starting position.


This exercise is great for targeting your glutes, quads and hamstrings.


Exercise 3: Bulgarian Split Squat

For this exercise, you will need a medium weight as well as an elevated surface, like a chair or a bench.


Hold the dumbbell in one hand and put your opposite foot on the elevated surface behind you. Lower your body until the thigh on your standing leg is parallel to the ground. Pause at the bottom, then push back up to the starting position.


This exercise is great for building single-leg strength and stability.


Exercise 4: Single-Leg Romanian Deadlifts

For this exercise, you will need a medium weight and something sturdy to hang onto.


Hold the dumbbell in one hand. With your other hand, hold onto the sturdy object to support yourself. Stand on your leg closest to the supporting object. Lower the dumbbell towards the ground. Hinge forward at the hips, keeping your back straight and lifting your other leg off the ground behind you. Pause at the bottom, then return to the starting position.


This exercise is great for targeting your glutes, hamstrings and lower back.


Many people do this exercise without a supporting object, but the supporting object provides more stability, allowing you to put more load on the muscles.


Exercise 5: Single-Leg Calf Raises

For this exercise, you will need a medium weight and something sturdy to hang onto.


Hold the dumbbell in one hand. With your other hand, hold onto the sturdy object to support yourself. Stand on your leg closest to the supporting object. Raise on your toes and hold for a few seconds, then lower back down to the ground.


This exercise is great for building strength and definition in your calf muscles.
