About the moves:

We’ve made these exercises into a circuit so you can smash 'em out in just 20 minutes, and be done with it. You only need to train your legs twice a week to start seeing results, so, the commitment is small, and the results are huge. (But, ya know, train the rest of your body, too. You can get a free 30 day trial ofSweatflix here, so there’s really no excuse.)

Ready?Try it out! Set your timers to 50 seconds, with 10 seconds rest, and do this entire circuit 5 times through. 

Step Ups

Recommended gear: Dumbbells and Step Riser

Notes on technique: Work your way up to using resistance if you’ve never done a step up before. Add weight when you’re confident. Concentrate on stepping up and pushing up through your heel to really engage your glutes. 

Side Steps

Recommended gear: Core Bands


Notes on technique:Keep your chest tall and a bend in your legs at all times to make sure you’re really getting the most out of this move for your legs. 

Romanian Deadlifts

Recommended gear:Core Bands

Notes on technique:Maintain a flat back throughout the movement and squeeze up through your glutes as you stand up. 

Barbell Squat

Recommended gear:Sculpt Bar


Notes on technique: Keep your knees behind your toes and spine flat and long. Don’t hunch your back or lean forward. Sink into your heels and push up from your heels. Practice with no resistance before you pick up the barbell. Granted, you will be able to use resistance soon! Your muscles are already used to squatting your own weight, so even if you just use 10lbs, aim to load up as soon as your form is spot on. The squat is one of the most fundamental leg exercises for beginners (or any fitness level), so, unless you can’t squat due to injury (in which case,read this), be sure to master this move. 

How’d ya do? Let us know in the comments! Don’t forget about our LIMITED TIME offer to get free dumbbells when youpurchase our Sculpt Bar. Add the bundle to your cart and use promo code FREEDBS.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
