Hey, I'm Jay McLeod, the professional women's fitness trainer. Today, we are going to talk about what's the difference between a leg lift and a thigh lift. They're two completely different exercises. Your leg lift works your lower abdominal muscles. And a thigh lift works your hip flexors mainly your rectus femoris. Okay. Now to do a leg lift first off grab your yoga mat ok. Whatever you have ok. Lay flat on your back looking up at the ceiling. You are going to begin with your hands by your side and leg straight ok. Now if you need to you can put a slight bend in your knees. You are going to inhale and slowly raise your legs up until your legs are perpendicular with the ground. Remember to keep your back pressed into the floor ok. So this doesn't put too much of a strain on your lower back. Exhale and slowly lower your legs back down until your heels are about three inches off the ground. Inhale and repeat. The second exercise I have for you are thigh lifts. Okay. Thigh lifts what you want to do is stand with your weight on one leg. Hands on your hips ok. With your opposite leg, opposite toes slightly touching the floor ok. You are going to lift your thigh until your knee forms a 90 degree angle ok. Exhale and lower your leg this time without your toes touching the ground. And repeat. Now this exercise can be made harder by placing a weight plate on your thigh. Okay I recommend going for about 12 to 15 maybe even 15 to 20 repetitions for this exercise. Now remember every single time you step in a gym I want you to ask yourself how bad do you want it?
