Spring is a time when the body and the spirit awaken. Everyone starts to think about the summer period, time when people are most concerned about their appearances.
It is not unknown that women have more problems in this area than men, and in particular parts – the thighs and hips. These parts require the most exercise because it is so difficult to remove the excess inches.
Tone your Legs
But, if you are certain about losing a couple of inches, then you have to start being careful about how much calories per day do you consume, start drinking a lot of water and doing some hard exercises.
You don’t have to commit yourself to going to the gym because there are exercises which you can do at the comfort of your own home, and have equally good results. They are not easy, but if you have 10-15 minutes to spare, and do this workout regularly, your body will be grateful to you.
Every exercise should be done for 30 seconds. You should start by doing plie squats. Knees open, toes out, and you lower your hips and butt down and then back up.
Then, you do a side lounge, just get your leg out to the side and let the rest of your body follow it. Then come back to the normal position.
Do this with each leg. Be careful not to let the knee go over your ankle or toes when you bend your legs. Next, you’re going to do regular squats, but when you pull yourself back up, kick the left leg to the side. Do this exercise thirty seconds and then switch legs.
Please keep special attention to always keeping your back straight and shoulders lifted while doing these exercises. Also, make sure your hands stay neutral.
After this, you will do skater hops, where you just jump from one to the other leg, keeping the leg you’re not jumping onto straight and behind your body.
Afterwards, lay down to the ground on your left side, keep the lefs leg straight on the ground and your right leg bend to the knee, fooot on the ground, then just lift your left leg up and down.
This exercise is called inner leg lift. Do this to the other side too. Next, you will do leg circles, where you don’t change the position, just switch the legs.
If you are turned to your left side, leave your left leg on the floor, right leg in the air and start making back circles. Do the same thing with the other leg too, to the other side.
Next – outer leg lift. Make a side plank, and bring one leg up, then lower it back down. Do the same to the other side as well. One of the last exercises is fire hydrants.
Here you come to the knees and arms, and lift one leg a little bit off the ground, then pull it up to the side, and back down again. Same goes for the other leg too.
The last one is pretty much the same as the previous one, only when you lift your leg up, you also do a little kick to the side.
We hope that with these exercises you will tone your thighs and hips, and be one step closer to the perfect summer body.
