5 Best Floor Workouts for Lean and Sculpted Legs

Glute Bridges

Lay flat on your back with your feet hip-width apart and your knees bent. Just above your knees, place a resistance band. Squeeze your glutes at the top of the movement by using your core and pressing through your heels to raise your hips toward the ceiling. 

Clamshells

With your hips stacked and your legs bent, lie on your side. Just above your knees, place a resistance band. As much as is comfortable, open your upper leg while keeping your feet together, then close it. Throughout the exercise, maintain your hips stacked and your core active.

Fire Hydrants

With a resistance band slightly above your knees, begin on all fours. Lift one leg out to the side while keeping your knee bent, leading with your knee (like a dog at a fire hydrant). Controlfully lower your leg back down, then switch to the other side.

Resistance Band Side Steps

Wrap your ankles in a resistance band. Place your feet hip-width apart and bending your knees just a little bit. Step to one side while keeping the band taut, and then step to the other side with the other foot. Step back and forth while keeping your knees bent and applying pressure to the band. On each side, complete three sets of 12 15 repetitions.

 Side-Lying Leg Raises

Stretch and stack your legs while lying on your side. A resistance band should be placed directly above your ankles. Maintaining your hips stacked and your upper leg straight, raise it toward the ceiling. Controlfully lower your leg back down, then do it again. On each side, complete three sets of 12 15 repetitions.
