Even if only the calendar spring has come for now, it will soon become much warmer outside. The sun will begin to warm up, which means you can put on your favorite short dress. But before that, you should take care of the beauty of your legs.
Exercises will help make them slim and fit, for which you do not need to go to the gym or exhaust yourself with hard workouts. It is enough to play sports at home only a few times a week. Here are just a few exercise options to help your legs shine.
Swing your legs
Start with a high-backed chair. You will need it as a support.
Stand up straight with your feet together. Turn sideways to the back of the chair, grab it with your hand. Do the exercises with your right leg first. Swing to the side, then return your leg to its original position. Now swing back and put your foot back. Repeat the exercise 15 times. Then you can move to your left leg and do the same.
Raising your legs from a sideways position
You will not need additional items for this exercise. The only thing you need is a yoga mat.
Lie on it. Roll over onto your right side and focus on your right hand. Place your left hand on the floor at chest level. Slowly begin to lift your left leg, when you feel that your muscles are tense, return it to its original position. Repeat the exercise 15 times, and then do the same with the left leg.
This exercise is also worth doing while lying on a gym mat. However, this time you will need to lie on your back.
Straighten your arms and place them along the body. Pull in your stomach. Slowly lift your legs 45 degrees. If it's hard for you, you can keep them closer to the floor. Spread your legs apart and bring them together slowly, without making any sudden movements. Try not to choke your breath while doing this. Do several sets of 15-20 exercises.
Now you can put the rug aside. The next exercise should be done while standing.
Stand straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Make sure your socks are pointing out to the sides. Leave your hands on your hips. Start squatting slowly. When your legs are in a right angle, hold this position for a few seconds. Then jump up and return to the starting position. Do 2 sets of 15 reps.
And of course, do not forget about one of the most effective exercises for slim legs. We're talking about lunges.
Stand up straight with your hands on your belt. Step forward with your right leg, bend it at a right angle. Remember to keep your back straight. Return to starting position. Repeat the exercise with your left leg. In general, it is worth doing 2 sets of 10-15 lunges on each leg.
After 2-3 weeks of regular exercise, you will feel small changes. Most importantly, do not forget to train several times a week. If you do everything right, you will soon be able to show everyone your toned legs.
