This 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.

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. LYING LEG OPENERS
This workout is amazing for your inner butt and thigh. Inner thighs are a problematic area for many women but this workout is very effective. Also, if want to target your butt without building your quads (muscle at the front of your thighs), you’ll love this.
Complete 45 seconds on each leg (PS – these are amazing for your inner thigh and butt!).
2. SHOULDER TAP PUSH UPS
This workout focuses on your arms and chest while strenghtening your core. As with all my workouts, you won’t bulk up. :)
I used ankle weights around my wrists for this exercise to make it a bit more challenging. But you can do it without. I’ll put the link to the ankle weights I use at the bottom of this post.
Don’t forget to tap both shoulders while doing this workout.
3. SINGLE LEG ROPE CLIMBER ON GLIDING DISCS
Do 45 seconds on each leg if you can (if it’s too difficult you can do 30 seconds). If you don’t have gliding discs, you can use small towels or paper plates. I’ll put the link to the gliding discs I use down the bottom.
1. HIP BRIDGE 10 PULSES AND 10 SECOND HOLD
This one targets your glutes and hamstrings (muscle at the back of your thigh). It will help you get a perky butt and lean legs!
2. SINGLE ARM PUSH UPS ON SLIDERS
This one is really effective but also quite tough so if you can only do 30 seconds, that’s OK!
3. C CRUNCHES
This one targets your abs but also obliques and hips. Make sure that your lower back stays on the floor.
This is the type of resistance training that is in my Lean Legs eBooks. It will help you get toned without adding bulk. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask below! xx
