During the spring and summer, I feel like everyone is working toward that swimsuit-ready body. For me, that means all legs and booty. I want to walk around in my swimsuit with my muscles shining through. After months of sweatpants and hot chocolate, I get my legs and booty swimsuit ready by doing this workout twice a week.
The first day I complete five 10-rep sets of leg extensions at 40 pounds, five 10-rep sets of leg back kicks at 40 pounds, and five 10-rep sets of hip extensions at 10 pounds. The second day I bump it up to seven and a half 10-rep sets.
Getting Setup at Home
Find a chair or a door jam and secure the resistant band. Put your ankle weighs on and get yourself pumped up for this workout.
Start out with a low weight. In the video, I use two and a half pound ankle weights, which is a good weight to start with. I suggest three 10-rep sets of each workout: leg extensions, back kicks, and hips extensions.
Slip the loop of the resistant band around your right foot. Stand parallel to the door jam or chair with your feet shoulder-width apart. Slightly bend your standing leg. Keeping your right leg straight, extend it back behind you. Touch your toe to the floor. Extend back out and repeat for a ten reps. Complete one set and then switch to your left leg.
In the same stance as the leg extension, feet parallel to the door jam or chair, shoulder width apart. Slight bend in your standing leg. Raising your right leg to a 90-degree angle kick back and move back so your right foot is parallel to your standing leg. Complete one set and then switch to your left leg.
Stand with your hip parallel to the door jam or chair. Slight bend in your standing leg. Keeping your right leg straight extend it out to the right and place back down. Complete one set and then switch to your left leg.
