Lean Legs Workout Day 1 is the type of lighter resistance training that I recommend to get toned without getting bulky.
These are the type of exercises in my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program. The program has 3 of these workouts per week, so I have posted 3 of these circuits for you to try. You can find the other workouts here and here.
They might look easy, but you definitely feel them and they get results. I know this style of exercise is not for everyone, but if a lean and toned look is what you are after, then these are perfect :)
I would also suggest you to find out what is your body type. There are 3 different body types and they all lose weight and build muscle differently.
I have created a special Body Type Quiz which will help you learn your body type in just 2 minutes. And it’s completely free! :)
HOW TO COMPLETE THE CIRCUIT
- Complete each exercise in circuit 1 three times (so you do exercises 1, 2 and 3 straight after each other – not exercise 1 three times).
- Once you have completed the 3 exercises, rest for 30 seconds.
- You should do 3 rounds in total.
- Complete circuit 2 in the exact same way.

HOW TO COMPLETE THE CIRCUIT
Complete each exercise in circuit 1 three times (so you do exercises 1, 2 and 3 straight after each other – not exercise 1 three times). Once you have completed the 3 exercises, rest for 30 seconds. You should do 3 rounds in total.
Complete circuit 2 in the exact same way.
1. SINGLE LEG SKATERS
For this one, you’ll need a gliding disc. If you don’t have a gliding disc, you can use a small towel or a paper plate. I’ll put a link below to the gliding discs that I use.
This exercise will give you beautiful, lean and toned legs without bulking. Your legs will be stronger but still feminine. And it will help you build stability and coordination.
Do 45 seconds on each leg.
2. YOGA PUSH UP
This exercise combines the benefits of yoga with the amazing upper body and core benefits of push-ups. You’ll work on your upper body and inner core muscles, and lengthen and stretch through your upper and lower body.
3. LYING LEG RAISES
This exercise will help you slim down your legs without making your thighs bulky. And it’s a great workout for your core and abs. I used ankle weights to make it a bit more challenging – I’ll also put a link to these below.
1. STRAIGHT LEG DONKEY RAISES
Dokey kicks are great for building your booty without growing your thighs. Do 4 regular, 4 to the left and 4 to the right.
Do 45 seconds on each leg. Use ankle weights to make it a bit more challenging.
Boxing is great for toning your arms without making them bulky. Victoria Secret models also love boxing.
Do 10 straight and 10 high punches. Again use ankle weights for extra resistance.
3. ROLL UPS
This is a fantastic core and abdominal strengthening workout. It will also work your legs without making them too muscular.
Use yoga mat for comfort.
This is the type of resistance training that is in my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program. It will help you get toned without adding bulk. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask below! xx
