Sandra Bullock’s Leg Workout
1. Glute Burn
Lay on your belly and bend your knees so that your heels touch with feet flexed in a frog position. Your knees will be pointing away from one another. Squeeze your glutes as you raise your heels towards the ceiling and lower down, making sure to engage in your core to protect your lower back. Repeat 3 sets of 10 reps (This one is oddly difficult).
Start on all fours, with your fingertips facing forward, away from the body. Engage your abs so that the navel is back towards to spine. Bring your right knee to chest keeping everything parallel, then kick back the leg (staying parallel) with foot flexed and then bring the knee back into the chest. Do 40 reps and repeat on the left leg to feel the summer burn!
3. Inner Thigh Squeeze
Sit down in a chair. Grab a small Pilates ball (or a kid’s dodge ball works just fine) and place between your legs. Firing from the inner thigh, squeeze the ball and release. Repeat 3 sets of 10, at the end of the last set, hold the contraction for 20 counts (source).
