Toning Your Legs Within 3 Minutes Before You Sleep
What if we tell you that it will only take you three minutes every day to slim down your legs, and it wouldn’t cost you a buck? You won’t believe it. But we are not kidding. Nor is this a fantasy. Generally, legs are the area of the body we tend to ignore. Leg day makes us feel sick. Maybe because it’s difficult to walk after that. But legs are important and we need to have strong legs. After all, they carry us around, right?
Try the following routine every single day, and you will definitely see changes in your legs. Do them before you go to sleep.
This exercise focuses on the all-round development of your legs, as well as your core. Also, you will be forced to speed up your metabolism as a result of this, so it also helps in burning calories. All you have to do is raise your knees up to your midriff, and almost to your chest. Do it fast. So basically, you have to run at one spot, but your knees should touch your midriff as you do it.
This is one of the most common exercises that you would find. It helps with your glutes, thighs, calves and hamstrings. It also works with your belly. All you have to do is keep your hands before you, and go down, while bending your knees at a right angle. As if you are sitting on an invisible chair. Your back needs to be straight. You could lower your glute below the knees, but keeping your thighs parallel to the ground is fine enough.
Oblique Leg Raises
Lie down on one side. Then, lift one of the legs at a 45-degree angle, and lower it slowly. Remember to stabilize your core before doing that. Contract it properly or you might end up injuring yourself.
Inner Thigh Lifts
For this exercise, you again need to lie down on your sides, while crossing the upper leg over the other leg, so that the heel of your crossed leg touches the knee of your lower leg. Now, slowly lift your lower leg, and then bring it back down. Don’t raise the upper torso. Simply use the lower part of your body for all the movement. Repeat the exercise on the other side too.
Do these exercises as many times as you can. Get your toned legs easily with a bit of hard work.
