Nothing feels better than being super toned and sculpted when you slip into your favorite pair of skinny jeans. This workout is just three moves designed to target all the key areas that define a sexy shape in your jeans. The other benefit of the exercises is that I have designed them so they have what we refer to as “compound moves.“ They engage lots of muscles, and this also means you burn lots of calories at the same time. This workout is guaranteed to get you feeling amazing in those skinny jeans. Before you start, do your warm-up.
EXERCISE 1: SKINNY JEAN JUMP
Start in a standing position with good posture. Jump straight up, then land, and then jump straight up again. After the second jump, as you land, come straight into a deep squat, trying to touch your fingertips to the floor. Hold and then repeat for 20 repetitions.
EXERCISE 2: SHAPE YOUR BOTTOM LIFT
Start in a narrow squat position with your arms bent. Hold this position and then extend up by pushing your arms directly overhead and squeezing one leg out behind you. Hold for a second, really squeezing the bottom of the lifted leg tight. Then come back to the start position and repeat on the opposite leg. Do 40 repetitions of these.
EXERCISE 3: JEAN CURTSY
Standing with good posture, feet hip-width apart and arms crossed, slowly curtsy to one side by taking one leg out behind you and then bending through your knees, still keeping the upper body straight. Hold and then return to the start position. Do 20 repetitions on one leg and then do another 20 repetitions on the other leg.
So if you are desperate to feel fab in your skinny jeans, then you could repeat this routine two to three times, and always finish with your cool-down.
