Weekly Wednesday Workout: Kneeling Rear Leg Raises

Today we are working those butts! Because as we all know, everyone loves a good looking rear end 🙂


I love these, I have done a similar move prior, but these are great because they stick your leg straight up in the air for a more focused burn. Since there seems to be a whole lot of attention on the gluteus maximus these days, we should pay extra attention! 🙂 Even though the burn is real on the bum, when performing this exercise you realize that you pretty much feel it in all of your leg too! It’s a great pilates move, but an awesome toning move overall!

p.s. pardon the mess around here!! I have officially transformed and will be making the final tweaks in the next couple of days…what do you think?

Have you ever tried Kneeling Rear Leg Raises?

LOVE this look Nellie! Sooo pretty! I’m looking to add new routines to my “butt” training and I think this is a good one! I love compound moves that you can feel all over your body!

Wow, I love your new header! Super pretty!

I used to take a cardio kickboxing class that would spend about 10 minutes toward the end on all four doing all sorts of leg raises. We definitely did these and they are tough when you do them for an extended period of time. They’re fab for your behind! Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

Look at these gorgeous new duds! This place is all glittery and pretty (not that it wasn’t pretty before). Definitely in love with the new design. Did you do it yourself? As far as the leg raises go, I’ve never done those…but they definitely look like a great exercise – and would be a fabulous move for traveling!

Thanks Leslie! No mam, I totally hired a designer and she was worth every penny 🙂
