RESIZE YOUR THIGHS


It might be late autumn but I'm still wearing shorts, with ankle boots and chunky knits. Even if you're not going to be parading your pins in the winter months, think how good you'll feel when you whip them out come springtime and you've gotten yourself strong, sexy thighs, thanks to our quick swiish workout.

These thigh moves are so easy to do in your lounge room, you won’t need to fork out for gym membership.

Follow my suggested reps to create a killer 30-minute thigh workout.

Lateral Plyo Squats

Stand with your legs shoulder width apart.
Lean back into a squat position keeping your chest up and eyes forward.
Quickly jump in the air with your toes pointed and repeat.
Do 10 lateral Plyo squats in your thigh workout.

 
Leg Lifts

Lie on your side with your toes pointed.
Lift your leg in the air and hold. Slowly lower your leg back down.
Do 10 reps on each leg. 

Walking Lunges

Make sure you have a bit of room to move for this one.
Step forward into a regular lunge, making sure your back is straight and lean low into the lunge.
Do 10 reps on each leg.

swiish tip: Make sure you knees don’t extend over your toes. This means you’re stacking your joints correctly and will help maintain stability.

Kneeling Roundhouse Kick

Start kneeling on all fours with your arms extended under your shoulders and knees bent under your hips.
Lift your left knee off the floor, bending your left heel in closer to your body.
Next, lift left knee (keeping it bent) straight out to the side of your boy, trying to bring it up to hip height.

From here, extend your leg straight out, pointing your toe, shin and shoelaces facing forward. Bend knee back in and lower it down, almost to the floor (but not touching).
Repeat 15 times on the left, 15 times on the right.

swiish tip: Draw your abs in tight and try not to lean away from your legs as you lift it into your kick – and press both arms strong into the floor, keeping hips square.

Squat with Exercise Ball

Place a medium sized exercise ball between the center of your back and a wall.
Lower yourself into a squat position so that the ball moves down the wall.
Push back up again moving the ball up the wall.
Do 10 reps.

swiish tip: Make sure your knees don’t extend over your toes. This will utilize the correct muscles and help avoid any injury.
