Leg exercises with a homemade barbell

Now, we can do the next variation with a homemade barbell.

We can also use the barbell to exercise shoulders and arms at the same time. These exercises are more advanced, so I do not recommend them to beginners. However, if the first exercises are getting boring for you then you can add additional variations to make it more fun or a little bit challenging if they are too easy.

Legs workout with a barbell is a great alternative for a dumbbells leg workout.

Exercise 1

The first exercise is the same as the previous ones. Put your feet wider than hip-width apart and bend your knees to the right angles as if you were sitting on the chair. 

So, you can hold your barbell or you can raise your barbell by bending your elbows, or you can move your barbell forward. These are optional variations.
