Default Re: Leg (upper and lower) workout tips?

depends what area of the legs you are looking to work on, but here a few reccomendations for you:
Squats (First try without weights, or just with the bar for example, once you get stronger put on some weights). There are also many variants of squats too, but traditional squats are a good place to start.

Leg extensions (you will need to go to a gym for this, as you will need the leg extension machine). its aimed to improve quadricep strength (femoris vastus lateralis, vastus intermedius, rectus femoris, vastus medialis).

If you are looking to strengthen your adductor muscles, try using the adductor machine or a cable adduction.

But a great place to start is squats because they work alot of muscles in the legs!
