At home leg workout

Toned legs make you look good in almost anything you wear. So why don't you take the first step in toning those calves and thighs by trying this effective leg workout at home. The best part is that it requires no equipment at all.

Start out with 10-15 minutes of cardio then you’ll be ready for leg training.

Side Lunge

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and while keeping your right leg straight, push your hips back and to the left. Then bend your left knee slightly and lower your body until your left thigh is aligned to the ground. Both feet should remain flat on the ground at all times. Pause for three seconds, and then return to the starting position. Continue for 45 seconds and switch sides.

Calf raise

Place your hands on your hips and raise your heels off the ground until you are standing on your toes, hold for two seconds then lower under control - complete 12 reps.

Alternating Lunge

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart while placing your hands on your hips. Cross your left leg behind your right leg, and bend both knees while lowering your body until your right thigh is aligned to the floor. Return to start and repeat for one minute while switching sides.

Single-Leg Hip Raise

Lie down with your arms out to your sides with your left foot bent and flat on the ground while your right leg is straight. Then lift your right leg until it’s in line with your left thigh. Follow by squeezing your glutes and pushing your hips and lower back up, then pause. Return to starting position. Repeat for one minute.

Squat Jump

Begin with your feet placed shoulder-width apart and position yourself into a squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Follow by jumping as high as you can and let your knees bend 45 degrees when you land, pause in a deep squat position for two seconds and jump again. Repeat for 45 seconds.

Rest for a minute then repeat this workout 2 more times.
