The pro secrets for strong and lean legs
Legs for days! Fitness pro extraordinaire Amanda Bisk shares her tips.
EXCERCISE: SQUAT TUCK JUMP
WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? ”It is a really great leg-toner. It is about the inner thighs, outer thighs, your glutes, hamstrings and cavs. And if you do 15-20 reps, it’s a really good cardio exercise as well.”
REPS: Start with 10. When you’re ready for next level, do 15. If advanced, do 20.
Start in squat position. Your feet should be just a little bit wider than hip-width apart, with your toes pointing outwards. Squat down – sit down like you are sitting back in a chair, pressing your weight through your heels. Don’t go lower than horizontal with your thighbones.
When you reach the bottom of your squat, take a nice big jump up into the air. Imagine getting your knees to your elbows. Don’t worry, it’s fine if you can’t get them there! Just picturing it gives you a good position in the air.
When you come down from the air, try to land flat on your feet and come back down into the squat position. Make sure that you squeeze your knees outwards to keep your bottom activated. This will protect your knees.
