How to do this Lazy Girl Leg Workout
- There are 6 exercises in this lazy girl leg workout.
- Do each exercise for 15 to 25 reps. Max out at 25 reps. If it feels too easy you can add ankle weights.
- After you’re done with one exercise, move quickly to the next, without taking a break. This helps keep the heart rate up and burns more fat.
- One full round of all exercises counts as 1 set. Do 3 full sets of all exercises to complete this lazy leg workout.

Lazy Leg Exercises
Lie on your back with your feet planted flat on the floor shoulder width apart. Rest dumbbells (or barbell) across your hips. This is your start position. Squeeze your abs and glutes, then lift your butt up and off the floor until your body forms a straight line. Lower back down to the start position to complete one rep.
Hamstring Ball Tucks
Lie with your back on the floor with your feet on a stability ball. Keeping your core tight, lift your hips up off the floor. This is your start position. Use your legs to roll the ball in towards your butt as far as you can. Next, reverse the movement, rolling the ball back to the start position to complete one rep.
Knee Tap Extensions
Lie on your side with your legs bent. Point the upper knee down and out in front of you. This is your start position. Exhale and quickly lift your leg up and back pushing your heel back across your body. Quickly reverse the movement pulling your knee forward and down towards the floor to complete one rep. Do as many as you can until you feel the burn. Once you feel the burn do 5 more then stop. Complete the same number of reps with your other leg to complete one set. Tip: Try to keep your hips square and still during the movement.
Lie with your stomach with your feet pressed together to hold a dumbbell. This is your start position. While holding the weight between your feet exhale and lift the weight up as far as you can, squeezing at the top of the movement. Next, reverse the movement, lowering the weight back down to the start position to complete one rep.
Diamond Leg Lifts
Lie on your stomach with your legs spread and squeeze the balls of your feet together so your legs form a diamond shape. This is your start position. Exhale and lift your feet up as far as you can. Squeeze your glutes, at the top of the movement. Inhale and slowly lower back down to the start position, to complete one rep.
Lie with your legs extended out with toes pointed. Contract your abs and lift your legs off the ground about 6 inches. This is your start position. Lift one leg straight up then quickly lower it, as you simultaneously lift your other leg. Scissor kick both legs once, to complete one rep. Continue to alternate lifting and lowering your legs without stopping or touching the floor until you complete your set. Tip: Extend your arms out to the side or under your butt for support.
