It seems like legs are starting to move back into focus when it comes to talking about the best celebrity bodies. In fact, our appreciation for a killer pair of pins has reached a new high thanks to stars like Boity, Minnie Dlamini Jones, Thuli Phongolo and Sbahle Mpisane who regularly step out in short-shorts, mini-dresses, and skirts that show off their perfectly toned, highly sexy legs.
Minnie Dlamini Jones is well known for her bodacious curves. However, her legs are quite spectacular as well. Long and toned she enjoys showing them off with her ever present towering high heels. She will display them in short dresses and skirts, tight jeans and gowns with splits up the side or front.
At 28 years old (!!!), Minnie has become more successful in her career, but it’s her hot, sexy, toned legs that have been getting some serious attention. What’s her secret?
Here are tips below on how you can get yourself hot, sexy legs just like Minnie Dlamini’s.
1. Squats – This leg exercise might not sport a sexy name, but these moves will give your legs the ooh-la-la factor.
How to do a squat: Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, pointing toes at an outward angle. Clasp hands in front of the chest for balance. With back straight and chin up, lower the body to a squat position. Be sure to keep knees in line with your ankles (bending knees over your toes increases the chance of injury). Rise back up. Complete 12-15 reps.
2. Outer Leg Lifts – Saddlebags? This is a great go-to exercise for battling those thigh bulges that make you want to cover up.
How to do a leg lift: Set an exercise ball on the floor to the side of your body. Kneel next to the ball, resting one hip and arm on it. Stretch the outermost leg to the side so it’s in line with your hips and torso. Flex the toes toward the ceiling slightly. Keeping the leg straight and abs flexed, raise your leg. Pause for a moment at the top of the motion before lowering it down. Do 20 reps on each leg. Increase the burn of this saddlebag exercise by adding ankle weights.
3. Inner Leg Lift – This leg exercise pairs perfectly with the outer leg lift to battle saddlebags.
How to do a thigh lift: Lie on your side, bottom leg extended straight. Bend the top leg so the knee is bent and resting on the floor. Lift the extended leg, heel slightly higher than toes, toward the ceiling. Do 15 reps, then switch sides and repeat with the other leg.
4. Seated Calf Raise – Want an anytime, anywhere lower leg toner? The seated calf raise can be done during your regular workout routine or at the office.
How to do a calf raise: Sit on a stable chair, couch, or bench and place feet flat on the floor. Hold a dumbbell so the end rests on top of the leg you’re going to work. Raise your heel, contracting the calf muscle. Lower the heel to the floor. Do 12 reps on each leg.
5. Side Lunge – There are lots of variations on the lunge, but the side lunge is ideal for sculpting the quads for a great summer look.
How to do a side lunge: Stand straight, hands on your hips. Take a big step to the side with one leg, bending at the knee (the leg of the plant foot stays straight). Push off the heel to bring the lunging leg back to center. Complete 20 reps on each leg.
