How to Do a Seated Leg Lift

Learn how to do a seated leg lift from personal trainer Layla Luciano in this Howcast thighs workout video.


Hey, I'm Layla and this is the seated leg lift.

You're just going to sit with both legs out, you can do this against a wall
if you want to make sure you keep your back flat and you're sitting up nice
and tall, shoulders back and chest up. From here, if you're not against
the wall, or even if you are, you can place your hands by your sides and
all we're doing is we're lifting our legs up and down, this is really going
to target that quad area, the front of the legs here at the thigh. All
you're going to do is, you're going to keep your foot flexed, take one leg
up and down, up and down, up and down, just like that. Making sure the abs
stay nice and tight, shoulders rolled back, chest up, keeping that posture.
You're going to feel this right away on that quad area and you can do 10 -
12 reps on each side, taking the leg up and down, up, down, just like that.

And that's how you do the seated leg lift.
