This exercise tones both the outside and main part of your bottom as well as you inner thighs. It is great for reducing fat from the stubborn bottom area.
Place your hands placed behind your head and stand with feet close
together at a stance with one foot centred in a small towel (use on a wooden floor).
Look straight ahead, keep your head up, tuck your bottom under and keep your spine long and body in centre of balance. Pull and ‘lift’ your belly button up to keep your abs. tight.
Slide your foot with the towel directly out to the side at a 45 degree angle, hinging and going back at your hips. Avoid any rotation of the hips.
Your upper thigh should be parallel to the ground.
Stop when the towel sliding leg is fully extended.
Repeat for 10-12 on the same leg then switch legs. Perform 2 sets on each leg.
Pregnancy version: hold on to the back of a chair so the chair is at your side, with the leg that will slide being furthest away from the chair. Instead of using the towel, simply step back into the position.
