I've been posting fitness tips for a few weeks now to get your bodies summer ready.
1. bingo wings (flabby arms)
2. bum (butt, rear end, trunk)
Today, it's all about getting trimmer thighs and toned & defined calves. As usual, these are very simple moves that make big changes to your body if you do them every other day. You ready?
For a lower body exercise that really targets your butt, saddlebags and inner thighs, try this one.
Stand upright with your feet wide and your toes pointed outwards
Lift your hands out to the front for balance
Bend at the hips to sit back and bend the knees at the same time
Lower your butt as far as you can without leaning too far forwards
Make sure you keep your knees directly above or just behind your toes at all times
Stand straight without locking your knees and repeat x 15
If you need to make this move tougher you can hold on to a pair of dumbbells between your legs or a bag of shopping!
Single leg calf raise
A brilliantly quick way to tone your calves
Stand straight and hook one foot behind the other ankle
You may need to balance against a wall as you rise up onto your toes
Lower the heel gently back to the ground and repeat x 15 before switching legs
Couldn't be easier, have a go and let me know what you think.
