Summer is right around the corner, and if you’re like us, your legs have been wrapped up in cozy sweats for the past year (no shame, just the truth). First things first, we’ve been used to no shave, no tan, and pretty much no makeup for as long as the next person, so we’re here for you, with a handful of ways to prep your legs for the new season. Start with our wellness and workout tips along with our Poosh products picks. Don’t forget to get enough sleep, stretch, and drink plenty of water for your best overall health.
Spending over a year inside due to the pandemic has us excited and ready to prepare for the warm weather ahead. We’re adding these moves to our fitness rotation from the comfort of our own home.
Split squat jumps are an effective workout that you can practice at home or at the gym to tone your legs. We recommend doing three sets of 10 reps on each side for the most effective workout.
Curtsy lunges are a great way to tone your lower body and acquire more sculpted legs. You can do this workout with your hands on your hips or by holding a kettlebell in front of your chest. We recommend completing three sets of 15 on each side.
Inner thigh pulses help tone and slim your inner thighs and are a perfect move to add to your leg day routine to effectively work all areas of your lower body. You can exercise both sides of your body by completing this move on the floor of your home or gym with a yoga mat.
Wrap up your workout with this stretch routine or even to just end your day.
Now that we’ve gone over the importance of toning your legs, don’t forget to hydrate and exfoliate them. Below we’re sharing a list of some of our favorite Poosh Shop products to add to your body care routine.
