The Short Shorts Workout
Tone your butt, thighs, and calves in just 15 minutes -- and show some leg this summer.
Standing Leg Curl
Targets: Hamstrings and calves
- Stand with feet together and place rolled-up mat (or towel) evenly behind right knee so that it's parallel to floor. Lift right foot behind you with toes pointed, and pull heel toward butt to secure mat behind knee.
- Extend arms at shoulder level in front of you and clasp hands. (Beginners, use chair for balance.)
- Squeezing mat with leg throughout, lean forward slightly, keeping back flat, as you lift right knee behind you about 6 inches; lower.
- Do 20 pulses up and down. Switch legs and repeat.
