Leg Cross Over

Another good leg exercise is the Leg Cross Over. The leg cross over is great for strengthening and toning the inner thighs.

This leg exercise is more effective using a piece of thigh toning equipment, but if performed regularly and with increasing repetitions can get excellent results.

Its a good idea to use a chair or table for balance during this leg cross over exercise. Remember, always stay in your own comfort zone during the exercise and keep good form, move slowly and with smooth movements.

  • Stand next to a chair, holding the back of the chair for balance throughout the exercise. Both feet should be together.

  • Keeping the body upright and the legs straight, move the right leg slightly away from the left and then in a circular movement bring the right leg in front of and across the left leg.

  • Only go as far as feels comfortable, holding the leg in position for 3-5 seconds.

  • Return the leg beside to the starting position with feet together.

  • Repeat a further 4 times on the right leg, then repeat the whole exercise using the left leg.

As this exercise becomes easier increase the repetitions for each leg and slow the speed at which the leg moves during the exercise.
