    Need to strengthen my legs.

    First post.

    Lately I've been noticing that my legs feel really weak at times. If I have to stand in a line somewhere it can be absolute hell. My legs will start shaking like they're about to give out. I really need to do something about it. What exercises (without weights) can I do to help make my legs stronger?

    Walking lunges, pistol squats, squating with back against a wall (not sure what its called) are a couple.

    It sounds like you might have some stability issues. Your legs should be strong enough to support you standing. Have you suffered any nerve damage in the past? Are you, otherwise, healthy? Do you lift on a schedule or at all?

    Running is always a good leg builder, especially hill runs and hill sprints.

    Long horn - You may have one leg shorter than the other. It sounds silly but its pretty comon and can normally be cured by having an insert in your shoe.

    see a doc

    Ok. There was a page I came across that gave good descriptions on the correct way to do excercises and also had a video clip to demonstrate. I can't seem to find it again. Does anyone know a site like the one I am talking about?
