Stronger, longer, leaner thighs, shapely legs, and a lifted butt. Something we all desire and can achieve!
A healthy diet will help you lower your overall body fat, but if you are really looking to tone and trim your legs, thighs, and butt you need a targeted lower-body workout routine.
These workouts are designed to trim your thighs, sculpt your legs, and lift your booty.
Do two to three sets of each exercise three or four times a week.
Side Leg Lift
Lay on your side with one arm supporting your head and one arm in front of your chest. Your legs should be straight with your right leg on top of your left leg. Without moving any other part of your body, slowly raise your right leg as high as you can. Pause, then return to the starting position. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 12, repeat on left side.
Lie on your left side with your hips and knees bent 45 degrees. Stack your right leg on top of your left leg, heels together. Keeping your feet together and left leg on the floor, raise your right knee as high as you can without your heels coming apart. Pause, then return to the starting position. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 12, repeat on left side.
Lie face up on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Squeeze your glutes and press into your heels to raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. Pause, then slowly lower back to the starting position. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 12.
Twisted Mountain Climber
Start in a plank position, with your body forming a straight line from head to heels. Keeping your abs braced, pick up your right foot and slowly bring your right knee toward your left tricep. Then return to start. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 12, repeat on both sides.
Stand with your feet hip-width apart, arms at your sides. Lunge 45 degrees to the right, keeping your hips facing forward and your left leg straight. Pause, then return to start. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 12, then repeat on your left side.
Stand facing a bench, low chair, stair, or stepper. Place your left leg on the box. Step straight up on your left leg, keeping your right leg relaxed. Step back and return to start. That’s one rep. Repeat with the right leg and continue alternating. Do 10 to 12 reps on each side.
