Do you ever find yourself mesmerized over someone else’s legs? Legs are the one thing that really stand out to me. If someone has nice toned legs, I immediately take notice, and it always urges me to focus more on leg workouts when I hit the gym. If you’re in the same boat, you’re going to love the tutorials I’ve rounded up for you today.
How to do it: Lie on your back with knees bent and facing up. Plant your heels into the floor and lift the toes toward the shins. Raise the buttocks off the ground until your back forms a straight line from the knees to the shoulders. Hold for 1 second before lowering down.
Knee Lift-Leg Kick Combo
How to do it: Lie on your right side with the upper body supported by the right elbow and tricep, which should be flat on the mat at your side. Stack the legs and hip, and bend the knees. Lift the top bent leg, keeping it level, and then lower it. Straighten both legs and let them fall into a small split position (with one leg split over the other). Hover the bottom leg about 1-2 inches from the floor with knees facing forward. Return to starting position to complete one rep.
Outer Thigh Leg Lifts:
How to do it: Lie on your left side with your left elbow underneath your left shoulder, and your left forearm perpendicular to your body. Place your right fingertips down in front of your body for additional support. Bend your left leg and slide your knee a few inches forward as you bring your left heel toward your butt. Extend your right leg straight out, flex your right foot, and turn your right toes toward the ground. Keeping your core tight and right knee locked, engage your outer thigh and butt as you raise your extended leg up about one foot. With control, lower it toward the ground without touching down. That’s one rep. Complete up to 10, then repeat the same number on the opposite side.
Outer Thigh Leg Lifts:
How to do it: Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart and slightly turned out with your weight in your heels. Hinge forward at your hips and sit your butt back into a squat. Bend your knees until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Drive through your heels to stand back up straight. Squeeze your butt and keep your core tight as you stand.
