So today, I wanna show you the exact routine that I use to help tone up and slim my legs. It's only 15 minutes, no equipment required. So let's get straight into it. (upbeat music) Okay guys, welcome to your 15-minute leg workout. So for each exercise, you're doing 50 seconds on. The first exercise that we're going into is a squat position with alternating heel raises. So make sure when you're in this squat position, you're down as low as you can. Make sure to squeeze the glutes in and just lift one heel off of the floor at a time. That's it guys, make sure to keep that core engaged. Suck that navel into the spine. Although we're working those legs, we do wanna make sure we incorporate our full body. Let's lift the other heel straight up now. Remember to keep it nice and controlled. (timer beeping) – Rest. – Fantastic job, guys. The next move that you're gonna go into is curtsy lunges. So what you wanna do is you just wanna imagine that you're curtsying to the queen, bring that leg back as far down as you can with the knee and bring it back up to the same position. So we're working the same leg for 25 seconds. So down and up. Great job, guys. Let's switch on over to the other leg. So you wanna come up and down. Make sure to bring that knee behind the other leg. Keep that core nice and engaged. Squeeze those legs and glutes (timer beeping) as you come to the top. – Rest. – Fantastic work, guys.

If you need to focus on something on the floor to balance, just look at either the floor or something in front of you. So you wanna bring the leg up to the side, kick it straight behind you, bring it back to the side and down. Great work, guys. Keep going. Nice and controlled and slow. Go at your own pace here.
