Make your legs and bottom look heavenly with Jane Wake's toning exercise.
This is a standing routine for which you don’t need any equipment - however if you find it hard to balance or have any issues with your knees it's useful to have a high backed chair that you can use as a support. Keep checking your posture, and breathe slowly throughout. Check out the How to do it guide for more information on this. See the video for the number of times you repeat each move. All these videos are in REAL time – just follow and GO!
Start by standing with your feet hip width. Step wide to your right, squat, and then drag your leg back in, squeezing your inner thigh. If working on a carpet, take your shoes off.
Take a big step back behind you so that your right foot is behind on the ball of your foot. Make sure your legs are in parallel lines, hip width. Tuck your tailbone between your legs and bend your right knee so that your knee comes in line with your hips. Lift and lower, keeping your back up tall and in a vertical line.
Lunges back with leg lift
As above except as you lift up out of the lunge, lift your right foot off the floor, extend your leg behind you and squeeze your bum keeping your back still, abs in.
Holding balance into single leg squats
Lift up out of the above lunge and balance on your left foot. Slowly bring your right leg around to the front. Keeping just your right toe on the ground, squat back into your left leg and then lift and squeeze into your bum. Keep your back up tall and your hips level.
