Today it's all about legs! I get asked a LOT about how to keep our legs toned and sexy ... and here are some tips PLUS a sexy leg workout video targeted just for your legs! Keeping your legs healthy is important as we age - healthy legs can prevent varicose veins, promote healthy blood flow, and keep leg muscles healthy and strong, which can help to promote stability and prevent falls. Plus healthy legs will make you look and feel great! So get ready for summer dresses and shorts - let's get your legs looking fabulous in just 5 minutes!When you want to tone your legs, there are three areas to focus on: The thighs, the front and back of the legs, and the calves.
Thigh exercises: You will really want to focus on specific, targeted movements for the inner and outer thigh areas, as this area is not used all that often in our day to day movements. Try my inner thigh workout for a quick and effective way to tackle that thigh jiggle!
