Get Legs Like Penny!

Article By: Lisa Raleigh

Prioritise your workouts:  workouts should always remain a regular feature.

Have incentives:  rather spend extra time in the gym than cut your favourite foods.

Opts for circuit training, keeping your heart rate up and practise varied compound moves to torch calories.

Include these three moves into your workout for toned legs like Kaley Couco Sweeting:

Step up and side kick:

Stand to the side of an elevated surface, like a step or bench. Take a step onto it, rise up and kick your other leg out to the side. Lower back down to your starting position. Practise 12-16 reps, or as many as it takes to feel a burn.

Scissor sumo squat jumps:

Stand with feet wide apart and forearms held parallel to the ground at chest height. Sink down into a sumo squat, lowering your glutes as low to the ground as you can. Spring up into the air, crossing ankles mid-jump, then land back into a sumo squat. Practise 12-16 reps, or as many as it takes to feel a burn.

Leaning calf raises:

Stand roughly a metre from a wall, and hold an exercise ball against it with your forearms. Strongly push up onto your toes, pause for a moment then lower back down to your starting position. Practise three sets of 12-16 reps, or as many as it takes to feel a burn.
