Are you searching for effective exercises for your thighs that you can do within the comforts of your home? We’re recently come across a video on personal trainer and New Balance ambassadress, Holly Perkins demonstrating some really cool, butt and thigh exercises on Fit Sugar.
The Best 3 Of Holly Perkins’ Butt & Thigh Exercises
This workout will help you target your glutes.
With your feet together, position yourself as you would in a squat, as if you’re about to sit and with your knees bent.
For balance, you can stretch out your arms in front of you, with your hands folded together; or you can let them rest on your thighs.
Lift your right leg to the back, taking time to squeeze your butt before putting the feet back down. Do reps of 8.
Shift to the other leg. Remember to stay low on your supporting leg so that its thigh is also getting a workout.
2. Crouching Lunge
We just love this one!
Crouch down on your toes with your hands touching the floor.
Pull your right leg back as a runner would at the starting line; then pull it back to first position. Do the other leg.
3. Reverse Lunge and Kick
This workout is very effective for the inner thighs, as well.
Lower yourself once more in a squat position while balancing yourself with your hands clasped together in front of you or resting on your waist or hips.
Pull your right leg to the back, toward the back of the opposite leg as you would do in a curtsy, then kick to the right, pushing on your heel instead of your toes. Control your leg lift, do not trash it up; then pull back into curtsy. Do in reps of 8 before shifting to the other leg.
