How to do Front Leg Swings:

Starting Position: Facing a stable object and holding on for balance, stand on one foot by raising your opposite hip off the ground.  

Movement: Swing your leg in front of and across your body, then out to the side. Feel the stretch in your inner thigh, then outer thigh and booty.

Return: Repeat with your other leg.

Modification and Progression:

  • To simplify Front Leg Swings, slow your tempo and/or decrease your range of motion.
  • To advance Front Leg Swings, press your hips forward as you swing your leg across then out. Once your leg extends out, hold the position for one second, then slowly release.

Movement Tips:

  • Be careful when swinging your leg back down. To prevent hitting your heel on the ground, tilt and raise your hips so the swinging foot is elevated off the ground.
  • The slower you perform this movement, the more you will tone your inner thighs, glutes, and outer thighs.
  • Be mindful of your balance on the standing leg. Spread your toes out to stabilize yourself.
