Tabata Workout – Thighs

fitnessAs you know, in addition to our live and on-demand classes we also offer an exercise of the week via our blog.

This week we focus on toning those thighs with our choice of Top 4 exercises to get them tip top shape.

Exercise 1: Single leg circle

Lie on your back with both legs extended and your arms by your side. Raise your right leg up so the toe points upward to the ceiling keeping both legs straight.

Trace a circle on the ceiling with your right leg without moving your hips off the floor.

Trace the circle clockwise for 20 seconds.

Repeat with the other leg in the 2nd set of 4 exercises.

Exercise 2: Toe squat

Stand with your legs and knees together. Engage your abs and lower yourself into a half squat, as if going to sit on a chair.

Raise yourself on the balls of your feet and slowly lower and raise your bum about 4 inches whilst staying on the balls of your feet, keeping your abs engaged.

Continue for 20 seconds.

Repeat this move in the 2nd set of 4 exercises.

Exercise 3: Plie squat

Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart with your toes pointing outwards.

Place your arms straight in front of you and lower down into a squat. Go as low as you can without your knees going over your toes, and then raise yourself back up.

Continue for 20 seconds.

Repeat this move in the 2nd set of 4 exercises.

Exercise 4: Scissor kick

Lie on your back with your arms at either side, palms facing down and your legs extended.

Lift both legs about 45 degrees off the floor with your toes pointed. Quickly open and close your legs, crossing the right thigh over the left and then left thigh over right.

Continue for 20 seconds.

Repeat this move in the 2nd set of 4 exercises.

Once you’ve completed the first set of 4 exercise, start again from the beginning to complete a full Tabata workout.
