HAM IT UP with leg exercises!
If you’re like me, you have a million dresses and skirts in your closet. Short, long, short in the front and long in the back, knee length…did I mention short? Since that’s the most popular length in MY closet, it’s worth mentioning a few times! And, what pairs perfectly with these short skirts and dresses? Other than cute accessories and fabulous heels, we want great legs, don’t we? I know I do! Having great legs doesn’t only mean just having amazing quads and calves —we absolutely can’t forget about the hammies! Hamstrings look great when they are tight, round and popping—just like the booty. Hamstring enhance the shape of your legs and give you a sexy, curvy profile. I absolutely love training this body part. Below is one of my favorite hamstring workouts that will definitely have your hammies feeling the love. Okay…it’s time to HAM IT UP with leg exercises!
The Workout– Depending on your level of fitness, perform 3-5 sets of 15-25 reps. – If you want a more intense workout, do 5 sets and more reps and/or heavier weight. – Make sure to warm up and strech a bit before starting. Straight Leg Hamstring Cable Kickbacks Two Step Prone Leg Curls Stiff Leg Deadlifts (also called Romanian Deadlifts) Bosu Medicine Ball Single Leg Deadlift Kettlebell Swings
1) Straight Leg Hamstring Cable Kickbacks. Use the Ankle Strap attachment on the cable machine. Kick your leg back and up, but stop where you feel the tension in your hamstrings. Focus on your hamstrings—if you lift your leg too high, it becomes an exercise for the glute.4) Bosu Medicine Balance Ball Single Leg Deadlift. Stand on Bosu Balance Ball and hold a medicine ball over your head. With arms straight and torso straight, slowly bend forward and lift one leg up.5) Kettlebell Swings.Begin with legs about shoulder-width, grasping a kettlebell with both hands. Push glutes back, bend forward at the hips and let your arms swing backward through legs. Then drive hips forward to swing kettlebell to shoulder height. Your body should be in a straight line at the top of the swing.
