Weekly Wednesday Workout: Single Leg Circles

So for today’s Weekly Wednesday workout we are going to focus on our stems, our legs and yes–our thighs!

 

I love this one! No equipment required! You can even get the kids involved and challenge them to a contest! It can be done anywhere, at the gym or at home and it is actually a pretty good workout, especially once you tire out one side you can just try it in reverse! The key here is to keep your foot pointed because otherwise you may not feel it throughout the leg. Balance is also really key to this exercise but if you don’t have much balance you can hold on to a chair and still get the same effective workout!

Have you/Would you ever try Single Leg Circles?

I love this for the balance factor. So many times I’ve had comments form people after a class where we do things on leg say “I never knew how bad my balance was!” Right!!

Okay, I would definitely need the chair, but I feel like I could actually do this one! 🙂 Might try it with the kids later!-Ashley

I’m happy to report that my balance isn’t as terrible as I would have thought. It’s a nice challenge, though, to keep the stable leg stable!

Not standing but now I gotta give it the old college try! I sometimes try to think of ways to bring Pilates upright instead of on the floor because not everyone likes that. This is perfect!

Reply
Nellie September 26, 2013 - 10:36 pm

true, anyway to get the pilates in is great!

I LOVE the idea of getting the kids involved in this one…my four year old would probably be hilarious trying to do this. Thanks for another great exercise!

I remember doing these! Thanks for the reminder to reincorporate them in my home routine. The kicker is that no equipment is needed. Winning!
