Exercises for legs and buttocks
Sit on the couch, straighten your back, and rest your feet on the floor. Then straighten your right leg, pull your toe and stand up. Without lowering the right leg to the floor, take it to the side. Then return it to the starting position and sit down on the couch. Tense your abs to keep your balance.
Stand upright with your hands behind your head and shoulders relaxed. Pull your right elbow to your left knee. Then repeat this exercise for the other side and sit down on the couch. Concentrate on your abdominal work to lift your knee as high as possible.
Lie on your back with your legs bent at the knees and resting on the back of the couch. Lift your pelvis so that your body assumes the position of a taut string. Then pull your bent knee up to your chest, straighten your leg, and lower it to the couch. Do the same with the other leg.
Lie on your side, with your head supported. Bend one leg at knee, hold other leg in balance. Alternate between swinging your leg and pulling the knee up. Do not lower the working leg.
Rest your hands on the sofa, bend your right leg and put it on your left hip. Bend your elbows, put your pelvis down, and then push it up so that your hips and shoulders are in line. Return to the starting position.
