THE THIGHS AND BUTT WORK­OUT

Sunday Territorian - - SUNDAY LIFESTYLE -

SIN­GLE-LEG BRIDGE

WHY This is ex­cel­lent both for hip sta­bil­ity and for firm­ing and ton­ing the backs of your legs and butt. It fo­cuses on the ham­strings while en­gag­ing the glutes and core mus­cles.

HOW Ly­ing on your back, bend your right foot in to­ward your butt to cre­ate a 90-de­gree an­gle at the knee and keep your left leg straight out on the floor. Po­si­tion your hands ei­ther side of your body for sta­bil­ity, pull your belly in and butt un­der as you press your right heel into the floor to raise your hips up, us­ing mostly your ham­strings (back of thigh), and lift­ing your left leg straight up as you go. Form a straight line from knees to shoul­ders, then lower your body back down to the floor.

2 sets of 10 reps each leg, no rest be­tween sets.
