Women's Health Walking Workouts
ALTERNATING LEG EXTENSION
Lie on your back with knees bent, a towel under each heel, arms at your sides. Lift your hips six to 10cm into the air, press into your right heel and straighten your right leg. Bend your right knee and slide your heel back in as you slide your left leg out, keeping hips lifted. Do 10 reps with each leg.
MAKE IT EASIER
Use just one towel, sliding your foot out about 30cm, then return to start and repeat, keeping hips lifted. Switch feet halfway through reps.
MAKE IT HARDER
Simultaneously slide both legs out until they’re almost straight, then back in, keeping hips lifted.
