Use these lower-body toning moves during your regular walking workout to sculpt and lift your butt and thighs and burn more calories on your walk.
Targets: Quads, calves, hips, butt, and abs
While walking, tighten abs and lift bent left knee as high as you can directly in front of you, coming up on right toes. Simultaneously bend right elbow 90 degrees, bringing it across body toward left knee. (Swing left elbow back to counterbalance.)
- Hold for 1 count, then lower left foot to step forward. Repeat with right leg.
- Do 25 reps per leg, alternating sides.
