Leaner Legs Challenge Day 1

Posted Nov 15 2009 10:02pm

I have so much I want to say, but it’s going to have to wait until tomorrow.

But here was what Day One of the Leaner Legs Challenge looked like—I swear it’s only about 10 minutes:

  • Arabesque Leg Raises to the Back  leaning into chair or desk (20 each side, butt squeeze each time)
  • Straight Leg Raises to the Back leaning into chair or desk (30 each side, butt squeeze)
  • Side Raises without support (works abs too)  (30 each side)
  • Pendulum Lunges (forward then back lunges) (12 on one side, 12 on the other)
  • Squat Jumps (10)
  • Plyometric Jump Lunges (about 16)
  • Static Curtsy Lunge (15 full dips, then 15 deep pulses, switch sides)
  • Plie Squat (15)
  • Plie Squat with alternating heel raises (20)
  • Plyometic Jump Lunges (12)

Stretches

Runners lunge 30 seconds each side

Quad Stretch 20 seconds each side with hip tilt

Seated straight leg stretch folding over legs (10-20 seconds)

Many of these were variations of Physique 57 moves found here.
