Legs and thigh workouts

Its Legs and Butt Day TODAY!

So get your ass off the couch and try some of these moves I’m doing to get my legs toned, inner flab gone and a nice tight booty!

1. Kick backs. On the Floor on all floors, lift your one leg out and kick back. You can do this in one motion or in pulses. Alternate and do both legs, do 3 sets of 10-20 reps each side.

2. Lateral squat/side step. Using a weight or not, from standing position take a step to the side and keep knee bent with the other leg straight. Hold for 10 seconds. Return to standing position. Alternate with each side, do 3 sets of 10-20 reps each side.

3. Dumbbell Deadlift. Holding dumbbells in front of your body touching your toes, pull up to standing position. Do 3 sets of 10-20 reps each.
4. Starfish. I don’t know what these are called, but it makes me feel like I am a starfish! From standing position with legs apart, take your left arm and bend over and touch your right toe. Alternate with each side, do 3 sets of 10-20 reps each side.
5. Squat and forward kick. From standing position, hands behind your head, squat, as you stand up kick your one leg out in front of you. Return to standing position. Alternate with each side, do 3 sets of 10-20 reps each side.
6. Knee ups. Like a ninja, from standing position lift your knee up as high as you can, you can do it lift from front, or push your leg out slightly to the side when you left up to help tone those inner thighs. Alternate with each side, do 3 sets of 10-20 reps each side.

7. Lying down kick backs. With you lying on your tummy, place a weight in between your feet and lift up. You can do this in one motion or in pulses. Alternate and do both legs, do 3 sets of 10-20 reps each side.

8. Butt raises. Lying on your back, and knees bent, raise your butt and back with shoulders still on the ground. Pinch your butt in and  hold for 10 seconds. You can do this in one motion or in pulses. Alternate and do both legs, do 3 sets of 10-20 reps each side.
9. Leg extension butt raises. Same as above but with one leg raised. Alternate and do both legs, do 3 sets of 10-20 reps each side.
Right, so I hope you are sweating after this session and that in a few days you feel the burn of your muscles tightening and firming up. Here’s to a great leg day and onto having great body!
