Hi everyone! Don't let the holidays or travel get in the way of staying fit - try these quick, effective lower-body moves to firm up your tushie, tone up those thighs, and create long, lean, strong legs! 

For each of these moves, aim for two sets of 10 reps, be sure to keep your back straight and your abs tight for best results, and as always - start slow and work your way up if you need to!

Lower Body Tightener. I like to call this a Power Squat, because it is so good at toning and strengthening your booty and your thighs! Start by standing with your feet a little more than hip width apart, arms outstretched in front of you. Then slowly bend your knees and "sit back" as you lower your buttocks toward the floor. Go as low as you can while keeping your weight over your heels, not your knees. Hold the lowest position for a count of five, then squeeze your buttocks as you raise back up to standing position.

Tushie Lifter. This one will really give you results if you do it often! The open and close motion of the leg really works the booty and thigh area. Kneel on the floor on all fours, hands directly beneath your shoulders, knees beneath your hips. Raise your right leg out, keeping it bent at a 90-degree angle, until your thigh is parallel to the floor. Slowly lower your knee back down to relax, and then back up again, squeezing your buttocks. 

Quad Sculptor. Sit on the floor with your knees bent, feet on the floor. Slowly extend one leg straight in front of you, foot flexed, and tighten the top of your thigh. Lift leg one foot off the floor, then lower. Doing this exercise will strengthen and tone the front of your thighs so you can proudly wear rompers, shorts and mini skirts!

Inner Thigh Thinner. Similar to the Quad Sculptor above, only turn your toes out to the side to work the inner thighs. This is great for targeting the inner part of your thighs, especially around the inner part of your kneecap.

Add these moves to your daily fitness routine and you WILL see results in no time! And if you want more moves like this, get my Stop The Clock Workout Digital Workout Plan!
