Rear leg raise

The rear leg raise is another exercise that will strengthen and tone the buttocks, lower back, back of the hips and the hamstrings.

As with some of the other exercises at home examples it can also help with balance.

Use a table or the back of a chair to help you balance while doing the Rear Leg Raise. Remember to stay in your comfort zone and move the legs slowly and smoothly.

  • Stand with both feet together, placing one hand on the chair for balance.

  • For the best results try to keep your buttock cheeks tensed throughout the exercise. It's harder but much better for you.

  • Keep your body facing forward and stand straight while doing the Rear Leg Raise.

  • Take the right leg back, point your toe and touch the floor with the toe.

  • Hold the leg in the rear position for 3-4 seconds.

  • Return the leg back to the starting position.

  • Repeat the exercise 5 times with the right leg, making sure the back and forwards moves are slow and smooth.

  • Repeat using the left leg.
