Do you want firm legs?
Here are some simple leg exercises that can be performed at home. Along with a healthy diet and regular aerobic activity you can firm and strengthen them with some easy home exercises.
Keep in mind the legs are a very large muscle group. It is good to warm them up and stretch those muscles regardless if you are doing " High Intesity Weight Training" or simple leg exercises.
Warm up should include from 5 to 10 minutes of running in place, jumping rope or mountain climbers. Remember you need no equipment, so no excuses.
1. Squats: Hands behind the head, back straight. ( having trouble? squat between two chairs, support and balance yourself with your hands.)
2. Single leg Lunges: after 15 with one leg try and hold the lung position for 15 seconds
3. Calf raises:
4. Glute Kick Backs: On your hands and knee drive sole of one foot towards the ceiling.
5.Wall Sit: With your back against a wall, and your feet about 2 feet away from the wall, slide down until your knees are at a 90 degree angle. Hold the position as long as you can.
