You already know you should never skip leg day. How else are you going to stand up all day at all those summer music festivals you’ve got planned? Luckily for us, there are plenty of ways to pump up your thighs and get a great quad workout in less than 15 minutes a day. You can run with your dog, go for gold with a YouTube gymnastics workout or check out any one of these seven workouts that will isolate your thighs (and butt too).
