Have you been wanting to get lean legs but have no time to go to the gym?
I feel you but you don't need to live on the weight rack to get toned.
>>There is so much you can do by just using a countertop or a chair.<<
*And you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home.*
Before you take the time out of your day to go to the gym, let me teach you some of my favorite leg toning exercises.
Below are 3 movements to strengthen your legs!
Grab your small ball as you zip up from your pelvic floor and lower belly. Place the ball behind your knee as you hang on to the back of the chair. Squeeze that ball as you bring your heel to your booty. This will get the back of your hamstrings activated to help support your body.
Keeping the pelvic floor and low belly connection, you're going to bring a leg up and across. Then grab the back of that chair as you extend your leg and lengthen it out. Use your core to bring your leg back up and across as you continue to hang onto the back of the chair as you need to. On your last rep keep your leg extended out and do little pulses to activate your outer glute.
Soften your knees as you go up and forward on one leg while hanging onto the back of the chair. Then drop the opposite hip of your standing leg and wrap that glute as you open the hip back up. This will help you to create more space between your hip bones while working your inner thigh. On your last rep square your hips back up and do straight leg pulses to get your deep core to fire.
Well friend, I saved you a trip to the gym and your legs are looking for a fire extinguisher.
*Because they should be burning!*
