Earlier this week I attempted another workout from Pinterest: 5 Steps to Perfect Legs, adapted from HERE. What I love about this leg workout is that it targets all four areas of your thighs (1-4 in diagram below)! What you should remember is that speed is NOT your goal in these workouts…you should perform each exercise in a slow and controlled manner. To make the exercises more challenging, you can add weights (dumbbells, kettlebells, etc.).
1. Lunges – 10 reps each leg
2. Wide Squats – 15 reps
3. Outer Thigh Lifts – 10 reps each leg
4. Inner Thigh Lifts – 10 reps each leg
5. Calf Raises – 15 reps
You should start off with 1-2 sets of this circuit, then work your way up to 3 sets. If you complete all 3 sets, slow & controlled, this workout will take you 20 minutes! And you will feel the burn – in a “it hurts so good” way!
