As the summer is fast approaching and most people are concerned about showing off their legs, I find it more than an opportune time to bring out some efficient ways of toning up your legs and butt, in order to complete your lower body transformation just in time for the next trip to the beach.
So for tonight, you will need the help of a dumbbell and a stability ball. For the first routine, position yourself on your knees, with your hands on the floor, slightly wider than shoulder-apart. With your feet, grab the dumbbell firmly (which would be sitting upright), bring it closer to your butt area and then extend back. Make sure you feel comfortable with the weight of the dumbbell (i.e, not too heavy, but not too light either). Do about 20 to 40 seconds of this routine and move immediately on to the second one with no break in between.
In the second routine, sit on a nicely firm stability ball, your back against a pole. With your hands behind you, hug the pole tightly and lift up the dumbbell (from its upright position again), using your feet. Bring your legs up, parallel to the floor and back down. Execute this routine for about 20 to 40 seconds and take a 10 seconds break
Repeat the entire circuit 5 more times, for a total of 6 times
Backward Dumbbell Leg Raises (20-40 Sec)
