Workout: Lean Legs, Tight Tush

Posted on: October 10th, 2011 by Thamar Houliston

Nothing complements summer’s hiked-up hemlines quite like a pair of gorgeous legs. And getting them is easier than you may think. This workout, created by personal trainer Marcela Ceselka, targets every centimetre of your lower body – glutes, quads, hamstrings, hips, inner thighs and calves – to build lean muscle in your bottom half and boost your metabolism, while also improving your core strength and balance.

Three days a week, do two or three sets of this routine, resting for 60 seconds between each exercise. Shorten your break time (or get rid of it completely!) to increase the workout challenge even more.

Step Up With Leg Lift

Squeeze your glute to raise your left leg as far behind you as possible without arching your back (B). Reverse to return to start. That’s one rep. Repeat on the left leg. Alternate sides for a total of 12 to 15 reps.
