5 Exercises for Perfect Legs

3. OUTER THIGH LIFTS

STARTING POSITION:

  • Lie on your right side. Your head, shoulders and hips should all be aligned.
  • Your right arm should be extended out straight or resting under your head.
  • Rest your left arm on your left hip.
  • If you want to make the exercise more challenging, fasten a very light ankle to your left leg.

MOVEMENT:

  • Keeping your right leg straight and your foot flexed, slowly raise your right leg. Hold for a moment, then slowly lower your leg lower and repeat.
  • Lift your leg for 2 counts and lower it for 4 counts, i.e. you should lower your leg more slowly/ controlled than during the lifting phase.
  • Repeat for 8 times.
  • Turn over and repeat on the other side

KEY POINTS:

  • Do not rotate body forward or backward.
  • Gradually progress to 3 sets.
