Doing my short but effective leg routine will not only make everyday movements easier and keep your bones stronger, it will give you a shapely tush!
Depending on your fitness level do each exercise 1-4 times for 15-25 reps each. You can do each exercise one at a time or as a super set one after the other:
Exercise 1: Chair squats: Stand then sit on a chair without resting on it – make sure you slide you butt down and out, as if your chair is a little too far back, so that you are doing a proper squat.
Exercise 2: Stair step ups: Keep one foot on the first or second step then step up and down with the other foot – do not move the foot that is on the step
Exercise 3: Toe touches aka deadlifts – stand up straight then touch your toes using a very slight knee bend. Feel free to use some light dumbbells if you like
Exercise 4: Single Leg raise to the side. Lift one leg out to the side about a foot, then lower without resting foot on the floor. For stability feel free to hold onto a secured object like a tree or railing
Exercise 5: Butt lifts: Lie down facing ceiling. Knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Lift butt up then lower without resting on the floor
Remember to stretch your legs for a couple of minutes after your leg workout
