Learn how to do Goddess Pose with Amanda Bisk
Tip 29: Discover new ways to tone up your legs this summer. #UNLEASHYOURSUMMER
Challenging but extremely effective, Goddess Pose is an excellent exercise for strengthening and shaping the legs. It works your quads, hamstrings, inner thighs, and glutes as well as testing your flexibility and balance.
How to do it:
- Start with your feet out wide and toes pointing outward. Bring your hands into prayer in front of your chest.
- While keeping your chest up and broadening your collarbones, slowly begin to lower your bottom. It is important to squeeze you knees outward and keep your weight in your heels.
- Squat as deeply as you can without dropping your chest or allowing your knees to drop inward. Stop at you lowest point and hold for 5 long deep breaths in and out.
- Stand back up straight by pressing through your heels and lifting your chest like someone is pulling a string attached you your chest.
