Skinny Legs Workout
A chair is all you need for toned legs. Just make sure it is not moving around, you may also do these exercises on the couch if you prefer.
If you want to wear skinny jeans, this is the right workout for you. Your legs will get thinner and your butt firmer. By using just a chair, you will build up muscle and get leaner with every training you have done. Repeat each exercise for 12 times and rest one minute before the next round. Depending on your current fitness level, try to do 2 or 3 sets.
Stand in front of the chair. Now place your left foot on the chair, the right one remains on the floor and your body is totally straight. Now step up until your left leg is straight on the chair, the right knee is slightly bent so that your right foot doesn’t hit the chair. Hold for an instant and step back down. Repeat with the right foot on the chair.
Lie flat on a yoga mat your face looking up. Place your feet on a chair so that your knees are bent at 90 degrees. Your arms are stretched along your body. Lift your hips as high as you can and hold this position for 2 seconds before you lower them back to the floor again. Flex your abs while you do the movement; your arms are only for balance support and not to help pushing up.
SINGLE LEG BRIDGE
Lie on your back, your arms are stretched along your body. Now place your left foot on the chair and straighten your right leg. Push up your hips so that your upper body forms a straight line from the shoulders to the knees. Raise your hips by engaging your abs and not your arms. Try to do 12 repetitions with the right leg up before you switch to the left one.
Lie down sideways and support your upper body with your right elbow. Your left hand is in front of your body for support. Your right leg is stretched out under the chair while your left right foot is on the chair, leg straightened. Now lift your hips and right leg from the floor and hold the tension for 2 seconds. Try to do 12 repetitions before you switch legs. If it is too hard, do 6 and increase progressingly.
Stand with a straight back about one foot distance in front of a chair. Your feet are shoulder width apart, your arms stretched out in front of you. Now slowly lower your hips into a squat until your butt touches the chair and your legs are parallel with the floor. Without sitting down, immediately get up again and repeat. Your toes should never loose touch with the floor.
Go to the back of your chair and hold it with your fingertips. Your left foot stands firmly on the floor while you are bending your right knee and kicking your right foot backwards. Your upper body remains totally straight during the exercise and the abs are engaged at all the time. Do 12 repetitions before you switch to the other side.
