1. Bottom Lifts
Preparatory position: lie on the back and slightly bend your knees. Put your arms along the body. Perform up to 20 bottom lifts. You can touch the floor only with your elbows, feet, and head. Slowly return to the initial position. This exercise is highly efficient for buttocks and thighs.
2. Active Squats
Preparatory position: take the vertical position and put your legs shoulder-width apart. Keep your back straight. Bend your knees, like if you were trying to sit on a chair edge while making an inhale. Move your back forward, and avoid stoop shoulders. Put your hands on the thighs. Try to keep such position for a couple of seconds. Exhale, and return to the initial position. Keep your knees slightly bent. Try to make at least 10 repetitions. This exercise strengthens your thighs.
3. Leg Raises
Preparatory position: lie on your right side, and put your right arm under the head. Put your left hand along your body. Make an inhale, bend your left leg, and move it behind the right knee. Exhale, and try to raise the right leg, stretching the toe. Try to keep such position for a couple of seconds. Exhale, and return to the initial position. Keep your knees slightly bent. Try to make at least 10 repetitions. This exercise strengthens the inner side of the thigh.
4. Back Leg Swing
Preparatory position: on all fours on the floor (knees and palms). Don’t expand your arms and legs too wide. Your fingers have to be directed forward. Keep both your head and your back straight. Inhale, and move your left leg backward at the 90 degrees angle. Exhale, and move it as high as possible, waiting for a second at the highest point. Inhale, and return to the initial position. Make 10 repetitions for both legs. By using this exercise you will be able to strengthen the back surface of your thighs and buttocks.
5. Side Swings
Preparatory position: your back is straight, and your right hand is on the wall. Make 15 side swings with your left leg. Don’t stretch the foot, but make your toe straight. Try to increase the speed with each following swing. Change your arm and repeat. The outer surface of your thigh is involved during performing the exercise. By doing that you will not only improve the overall shape of the lower part of your body but also lose some excessive weight.
