At-Home Exercises To Tone Your Legs & Bum Using Ankle Weights

Incorporating ankle weights to your workout is not only a great way to add resistance to your lower body training, but it also helps you improve your overall strength as you perform those exercises.

In order to continue to build a muscle, and in order to avoid reaching the common “plateau”, you will need to work it harder by increasing your repetitions or in this case, by adding resistance to your routine

  • Side leg raises – Put your foot out to the side, and lift as high as you can
  • Up & across leg raises – Place your foot behind you, cross over to the opposite side, touch down, lift your leg bak up, and bring your foot back to the initial position
  • Lying leg curl – Place your hands under your chin, concentrate on squeezing your hamstring muscles. You could perform this exercise one leg at a time
  • Sidelying abduction leg lift – Make sure not to lean backwards and keep your core engaged while performing this exercise

Aim for 30 seconds (each leg) and repeat the cycle 4 times giving yourself 20 seconds break between each cycle

Try them out! x

  1. Love these! I do this as a warm up before heavy lifting. Plus, these helped me to balance out my crooked pelvis and spine. I definitely recommend this routine to anyone who wants a nice looking rear too 🙂
    Have a wonderful day!
