How badly do your want your thighs to look good? Is it as badly as some of my clients who have comical names for their legs like thunder thighs, thoroughbred, tree trunks or fire starters?
Well even if it's not, in my opinion there is nothing sexier than legs toned from butt to the heels.
I've put together three moves that can have you walking an extra mile just to please the environment!
With a proper diet, you can surely demand attention the next time you walk the runway!
1. Ball Bridge
Lie supine with head and shoulders on a physio ball, stomach drawn in, glutes tight, knees and feet hip-width apart, with a band around your knees. (Knees should form a 90-degree angle and feet pointed straight ahead).
Drop the hips toward the floor and back up again to start position, squeezing the glutes. Make sure not to arch the back in the top position.
Repeat for 15-20 reps, three sets, and a minute rest in between.
2. Side Lunge with a dumbbell
Start off with a dumbbell in your right hand, left hand on your waist, feet pointed straight, hip-width apart. Take a side step to the left, about three feet apart, push the hips out, bending the left knee, bringing the dumbbell underneath the hips.
Your left knee should not go over your toes. Ensure that by keeping your weight on your left heel.
Push yourself back up to starting position and repeat for 15 reps. Alternate sides after each set, for a total of six sets, three sets each side. Rest for 45 seconds after both sides complete a set, and don't forget to switch the dumbbell to the other hand!
3. Band walk
Start out with both hands on waist, shoulders retracted, stomach drawn in, glutes tight, knees soft, feet hip-width apart, and a band around your ankles. Without leaning to one side, take a step to the side, and then follow with the other foot.
Feet should always stay hip-width apart when they're on the ground. Take 15-20 steps in one direction and then the same amount back to original starting point.
Do 3 sets, with 1-minute rest.
