A Must DO Move for Great Glutes and Legs
This leg exercise works just about all the leg muscles, it is great for the glutes and you get even more emphasis on the outer thighs because of the side leg lift. Change it up by holding dumbbells in each hand or a medicine ball on your chest. Remember to do the proper number of reps and sets to match your goal. Less reps more weight and you’ll build muscle, more reps & less weight is better for weight loss.
Do it Right
- Stand with feet shoulder distance apart, knees soft, toes pointed slightly outward & abdominals tight
- Position barbell across shoulders, look straight ahead & squat down as far as possible or until thighs are parallel to floor, keeping knees over ankles & in line with toes
- Exhale, straighten legs & lift left leg out to the side as high as possible while keeping torso straight, return to starting position, repeat squat & then lift right leg out to the side
