Plus Size Fitness: Strong & Sexy Leg Exercises

I have finally fallen in love with my legs because I've worked hard to make them SEXY AND STRONG! And I want to share my favorite moves with you!

Using medium to heavy weights or optional weights, complete of 12-15 reps of all 4 moves (on each side for the Side Lunge Back Lunge and Split Squats). Then repeat with a second set of 12-15 reps.

Move #1: Squat with Knee Lifts
With legs hip width distance start standing, then lower yourself into a squat position, keeping your knees behind your toes. As you lift back to standing, raise your knee to parallel or higher using your lower abs to lift your knee. Lower back down to a squat, then raise to standing lifting your opposite knee, and repeat until you have completed 12-15 reps.

Move #2: Side Lunge Back Lunge
Start with your feet together standing tall. Step your Left foot out to the side for a lateral side squat. Keeping your left knee bent and behind your toe and the weight in your heel and keep your right foot planted to its starting position and straight. Return to standing by pushing from your left heel (to engage your butt) and stand up straight again. Then step back with your left leg to a lunge position, aiming to have a 90/90 position with your legs. Again, keeping your right knee bent and not going in front of your toes. Putting the weight in your right heel to help you stand up to a standing position. Repeat all reps on the single leg moving then switch sides and complete the sequence for 12-15 reps.
 
Move #3: Split Squats
Position your legs into a Staggered Stance --one foot in front of your body and the opposite behind with the heel off the floor. Goal is to lower down to a 90/90 leg position keeping your front knee behind the toes. I like to think of it like you are going up and down a carousel horse. As you stand, keep the weight in your front heel and back toe.

Move #4: Sumo Squats
With your toes pointed outwards, and standing in a wide stance. Lower down, keeping your knees from caving inward and your butt going straight down like you're sliding against a wall. Then raise back up keeping the weight in your heels pushing evenly.
