This exercise melts your muffin top and tones your hips and thighs.
To perform the exercise:
1.) Lay on your side with your arm out stretched reaching forward.
2.) Place your top hand behind your head for support
3.) Extend both legs out beneath you.
4.) Bend your bottom knee.
5.) Connect your entire underside to the ground, no spaces.
6.) Keep your outstretched knee facing forward throughout the exercise.
7.) Lift and lower your top leg as you bring your up and over to meet the moving leg,
8.) I recommend 20 -50 reps for 3-4 sets.
Can I just tell you how much I love hill training!!!! Hill training develops more then just gorgeous legs, sculpted abs and a perky butt. :) Hill training will teach you how to perform, with grace, under pressure. Hill training is a character builder. The hill forces you to focus on one thing and one thing only - getting to the top - by all means necessary. Hill training is a super attitude changer. You always start off hating the hill; but once you've climbed it and you look back at it from the other side, your prospective changes. Your "pre-hill" negative self talk turns into powerful, positive, "post hill", self-affirmation. Wow! I absolutely love hill training! :)
