Toned Legs: Side Kicks

Side Kicks

Side kicks are a great way to tone your entire leg, plus it’s great cardio! Start with your legs shoulder width apart. Shift your body weight to your left side and slightly bend your left knee. Place your left hand on your hip for support or hold a chair for balance if needed. With all your weight on your left leg, kick your right leg up towards the ceiling. Try for at least 10 kicks on each side- or 15 if you’re in a fighting mood.
