UAE PT Melissa Lowry shows you how to tone your legs for the beach season. Bring on the short shorts…

 

 

Bosu Lunge
While standing, put one leg behind you on the Bosu Ball contracting your core to maintain balance. Lower down into a lunge making sure you are far enough from the Bosu Ball, so the lunge creates a 90-degree angle to the ground. Then, return back to starting position and squeeze the glutes as you stand tall.
Sweat It! Do 12-reps on each leg and 3 or 4 sets.

Sumo Squat 
Standing tall, place feet out to the sides as wide as possible and point toes outward simulating a “plie” before you squat as low as you can.  Stand upright closing your legs and repeat by shifting your weight to either side of you before squatting to the ground again.
Sweat It! Do 20 squats and 3 or 4 sets.

Knee Tuck With 3-Pulse Squat
While standing with arms out in front of you, elbows in front of waist, jump straight up pulling knees to hands. Then, drop back into a squat and in the down phase, pulse 3 counts and jump straight up and repeat.
Sweat It! Do knee tuck/3-pulse squat combo 12 times for 3-4 sets total.
