I’ve been on a mission to strengthen my legs. When I was teaching bootcamps 4 years ago my legs were so strong! I realized that my legs needed some work 2 months ago, and was reminded last Saturday during a workout that I have lost a lot of strength. I am not sure the reason. I do workout 5-6 days a week. What I am realizing is is that the workouts from 4 years ago, really focused on legs by using different moves – intense moves – and varying them. I was also swimming – have been thinking of getting back into that too. That said, I found these great new (at least for me) leg moves that look super challenging, and I think working them into my workouts will help me reach my goal of having my strong legs back again! Let me know what you think!
- 1. Squat down on your right leg, left toes just touching the floor for balance.
- Without standing up, move your left leg back into a lunge.
- Keep your right leg bent and return your left leg to starting position.
- Do 15 reps, then repeat on the other side.
Tip: Don’t ever fully stand. The key is to keep the standing leg engaged and burning.
