Who else who less is taking advantage of these days at home to exercise . It is essential to stay active if we do not want to pay the consequences later, not only in the form of extra kilos : our legs suffer from the fact of walking less, of spending too much time sitting. Therefore, it is important to keep our lower extremities toned. If you train this area, you will be helping to improve blood circulation, avoiding fluid retention and the formation of fat , as explained by the Intimina experts, who recommend five simple exercises.
You have to place your legs shoulder-width apart with your feet facing outward. From that position, go down, as if you were going to sit down, with your back straight making a 90º angle with your legs and avoiding that the knees exceed your feet. Without a doubt, this is a simple and very complete exercise, since it also involves the muscles of the abdomen and back , and, in addition to toning the legs, it allows us to gain functional strength for other activities of daily life such as climbing stairs.
You have to lie on your back with your legs bent, your feet flat on the floor and your arms at your sides. Raise your pelvis towards the ceiling until you can make a straight bridge and after a few seconds, return to the starting position. Also remember to squeeze your glutes in each lift. If you want to do more intense work, you can place a disk on the abdomen. This exercise is a good alternative to tone thighs and buttocks and also prevent cellulite.
This is a very simple exercise to do and, at the same time, very effective. The first step in performing these exercises is to rest your forearms on the floor and your knees on the same axis as your hips. Then lift your right leg first, stretch it out, and bring it up . Then return to the starting position without resting your knee on the ground. Do the same step with your left leg.
Another simple exercise. It is enough to stand in front of the step (if we do not have one at home, it can be replaced by a low table or chair to be able to do the exercises, or even a step) with a straight back and legs apart and climb one of them on the step while the other remains stretched in air. Lower the starting leg and repeat with the other leg. It helps you to improve the toning of the legs avoiding the formation of fat and helping its elimination . In addition, it also helps to improve spatial coordination and stability and promotes postural hygiene.
A complete exercise that, in addition to returning you to childhood for a few minutes, also helps you burn calories in record time. You only need ten minutes a day and you will immediately notice how your legs are toned and defined while increasing lung capacity and cardiovascular health. All this while eliminating the stress that you may have in quarantine, as it is an aerobic exercise.
