LEGS AND BUTTOCKS EXERCISE
SquatsThe classic par excellence.It is the most complete movement that exists.They call it the king exercise for the lower body because a single movement works many muscles at once.It is not easy to execute, but it is so effective that if you learned it well it would be the only movement you would need to practice to achieve slender legs and a lifted and toned buttocks.Experts always advise keeping your back straight, without raising your heels.And try different variants.In fact, the jump squat is a good option for burning calories too.
Step-Up(or climb to the drawer).This classic from the 80s aerobics videos- in which you position yourself in front of the step with your legs slightly apart, lifting the leg you want to exercise into the box - is not a complicated exercise.But it is important to keep in mind that we should not help ourselves with the leg that we are not exercising.
Inclinations.Stand up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart.Now bend down taking care of your posture.Bend over so that your torso is parallel to the floor.At the same time, do not forget to slightly bend your legs.Then return to the starting position.Don't stretch your torso up with your back muscles.It is not only wrong but also dangerous.The back muscles keep the torso in a straight position, as well as lift the glutes.
Strides.Stand up straight, place your feet a little less than shoulder-width apart.Take a stride and sit until your hips are parallel to the floor.Keep your shoulders open and your arms down.Take these strides to walk around the room, this is how both legs work.Bend your front leg 90 degrees and let it take all the weight.Get up, kicking off your heel and swinging your leg back and forth.Take care that your back remains straight and does not lean forward.In this exercise, not onlythe gluteal muscles work, but also the front part of the hips.
