La La Legs!

You will be singing for joy after you get your thighs in shape with this amazing lower body series from the Xtend Workout. You will need a steady surface that will hold your balance (chair- couch - table) while you work your way into your favorite pair of jeans, heck maybe you can even bust out those skinny ones!

1. Stand with  feet in parallel stance open hip distance with both hands resting on steady surface. Lift both heels so you are balancing on the balls of your feet.

2. Plie (bend) your knees and lower your body down to a level that you feel an instant challenge! Keep your upper body lifting tall and maintain that gorgeous dancer's posture.

3. Hold your position for 8 counts then rise back up and lower heels to floor.

4. To advance, lower back down to your challenge zone and then start to pulse your body up and down in teeny tiny movements. Repeat 8 -10 pulses then rise back up and lower heels to floor. Repeat both sets to up the anti!

This exercise should be a killer! You  will most likely feel your legs shaking a bit (or a lot)... that's a good thing. Try your best to complete the reps, but don't be afraid to start out slow.
