The Skinny Jeans Workout

Your lower body – hips, thighs and backside is the region you love to hate the most. And on top of that the skinny (fitting) jeans fad seems to be staying with us for a while. This is the reason why you need to keep up with your healthy diet and fitness all year round. But, even if these jeans are not on your priority list, doing this workout will promise you a flattened belly and strengthened legs. If you are not into skinny jeans, even then this workout will make you stop doing those zipper dance you do whenever you don your favorite pair of jeans.   🙂

 The Rules

Fitness is a game and we have to play by the rules. For this challenge of wearing skinny jeans in a short period of time there are certain rules to be followed.

  • Commit fully and keep your eyes focused on your favorite skinny jeans. 😛
  • If possible, enlist a partner in crime. Working out with a buddy makes it more fun.

Long & Lean Lifts

Begin lying on your right side, propped up on your right (bent) elbow directly under your shoulder, shoulders stacked, legs stacked and lengthened in line with the torso.

Use your left hand (lightly) for balance on the floor in front of you.

Externally rotate your top (left) leg (turn it out so that your knee and toes are pointing toward the ceiling instead of forward).

With top leg turned out and toes pointed, lift the leg straight up toward the ceiling as high as you can (pictured).

Flex the foot and slowly return the leg back down to the start position to complete one rep.

Continue for a total of 20 reps. Switch sides.
