- Walk more
Aerobic activity like walking is one of the best exercises to tone legs.
Walk whenever you can. Here are some tips:
As you get stronger, you can try jogging or running. Or you can keep adding in walking to more of your day and start walking up hills.
- Indoor cycling
Indoor cycling is one of the fastest ways to tone your legs. It’s a high-intensity workout, but it’s easier on the joints than jogging or running.
Always adjust the bike as needed. This will prevent injuries and painful positions.
- Hill sprints
Hill sprints put your legs to work. This powerful exercise will build muscle strength and improve your running stride.
To do hill sprints, find a steep hill. Do 4 to 6 sets of 10- to 20-second sprints. Take 3-minute breaks.
Dancing is a fun and fast way to tone your legs. You can take a class or follow videos at home. There are many types of dancing, including salsa, hip-hop, and line dancing. Choose your favorite!
Dancing also increases your heart rate, improves balance, and enhances your memory.
Try salsa classes, or aerobic dance. Or just turn on some music at home and move.
- Jump rope
Jumping rope also sculpts your leg muscles. It works the calves while increasing your heart rate.
To start, jump rope for 20 seconds straight. Aim for 60 seconds over time.
