Exercises for great-looking legs

One of the best exercises to work the legs is the lying down abduction with a theraband. Start by lying on your side with both legs extended together, the theraband around your ankles. Make sure you support your head with your hand and tighten the muscles of the front of the thigh (quadriceps) of both legs. Then lift your upper leg about 20cm from the floor and hold for five seconds. Lower this leg and repeat.
