Get Dancer’s Legs with Hamstring Curls
Want “tutu worthy” legs without having to put in all of the hours at the dance studio? My favorite exercise for getting the legs tight and toned in a pinch is a variation of the hamstring curl. Done using a large exercise ball, this exercise will leave your hamstrings popping whether you are looking to feel confident at the beach or for a night out on the town. Give it a try!
Directions: Start with the legs resting in a turned out position on the ball. Make sure your knees are straight. Now slowly bridge the hips up, keeping the arms at your sides for support. With the feet flexed, slowly curl the ball in towards your back. Repeat for 12-15 repetitions or as many as your fitness level will allow!
