Want short shorts worthy legs? This circuit will get you there in no time. Try the moves below, along with 30 minutes of elevated heart rate cardio, to sculpt your thighs, quads and calves. Get started!
Warrior III: Tone your legs, and core, with this yoga move. Stand with your feet together, and slowly lift your right leg, putting your weight onto your standing leg. As you lift your leg, begin to drop your head and torso until they form a straight horizontal line. Hold for 5 breaths and then slowly return to standing. Switch legs and repeat for a total of 3x on each leg.
Skater Lunge: Get ready to work your quads, glutes, and hamstrings. Stand with feet about hip-width apart, clasp your hands in front of your chest (holding a free weight). Shift your weight to your left foot and lower your body, pushing your hips back and bending your left knee until your left thigh is parallel to the ground. Return to the starting position and repeat on your right leg. Continue to alternate until you’ve completed 15 reps on each side.
Jump Squat: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and arms at the sides. Lower into a squat, going about two-thirds of the way down, and jump straight up. When you land, lower back into the squat position to complete one rep. Repeat 30x.
Single-Leg Calf Raises: Begin by standing on one foot, the other will be bent at the knee behind you, and slowly roll your foot as close to a tip toe and possible. Then slowly roll back to the flat of your foot. Complete 2 sets of 15 reps on each foot.
Chair Squat: Begin with feet hip-width apart with your back to a chair. Draw in your abs and slowly lower towards the chair, keep your weight in your heels. Stop before sitting and return to standing position. Do 3 sets of 15 reps.
Complete this circuit 3-4 times.
