3 exercises to get your legs in shape for short shorts


Who loves short-shorts? We love short-shorts! Whether “short” means a bitty, barely-there inseam or 5-inch Bermudas, here’s the workout you need to tone up and feel good in your summer britches, babe. Add these moves to your exercise regimen a few times a week to see results within a month.

 

Work your…booty and thighs

Grab a rolled up yoga mat or bath towel, or a light chair. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold the mat or the back of your chair in front of you, off the ground, with both hands on the object. Bend your knees a little bit and lean forward from your hips. Reach your arms out as you stretch your entire upper body down to place the object on the floor a few feet in front of your left foot. Your back should be parallel to the floor now. Now hold that position and sweep your right leg out to the side, pointing your toes. Bring your leg back to the starting position, slowly pull the object back off the floor and straighten your back. Repeat on the opposite side. Do 10 reps on each side.

 

Tone your…thighs, bum, hamstrings and core

Begin in a squat position. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart and your bum should be out behind you for balance. Keep your back flat and chin up. Power your body upward through your heels into the air. Straighten your legs and stretch up as high as you can. Then land softly on your feet and sink back down into the squat. Hold the squat for a long 5-count and jump again. Repeat 15 times.

 

Tighten up your…booty, thighs and hamstrings

Take a large step forward with your right leg into a lunge position. Keep your weight on the heel of your right foot, and make sure not to push your right knee ahead of your toe. Your left leg should be behind you, with your foot on your toes and your knee about two inches off the floor. As you come up, shift your weight forward and lift your back leg out directly behind you, squeezing your tush. Hold for a few seconds, then swing that leg forward to repeat the lunge on the left leg. Do 10 to 15 steps alternating legs.
