I’m loving this weather lately and it’s no surprise that I’m taking as many of my workouts as I can outside. Nothing beats a little fitness fun in the sun!
This awesome thigh-busting workout can be done anywhere, including at the gym, the local park or even in your living room. No baby stroller needed either…just grab a hold of the nearest park bench or a sturdy chair for balance.
Do 12-15 reps of each move (1-4) once through. That equals one set. Complete 3-5 sets depending on level of fitness.
Squat (move 1): Stand with feet hip width apart and sit back as if sitting into a chair keeping the weight in your heels. Return to standing. Repeat 12-15 times.
Plie Squat (move 2): Stand on your tip-toes so that your heels are touching and knees are slightly bent. Slowly continue to bend your knees so that you come down into a deeper plie. Pulse through this range of motion 12-15 times.
Leg Extension (move 3): Stand tall, lean into your left leg and extend your right leg out behind you. Slowly lift your extended leg up and back, toes pointed and squeezing glutes. Lower leg back toward the ground. Repeat 12-15 times. Switch legs and repeat.
Hip Abductor (move 4): Stand with your feet together. Lean into your left side and lift your right leg out to the side, foot flexed and toes facing forward. Lower your leg back to the ground. Repeat 12-15 times. Switch legs and repeat.
