Those celebrities on Dancing with the Stars always end up losing weight and getting so ripped by the end of the season. Health.com has a list of exercises that can help you workout just like the stars. Check em out:
1. Plié and Pulse Benefit: Strengthens and stretches thighs, hips and glutes How to do it: Stand with feet a bit wider than hip-width, toes turned out. With hands on hips and back straight, lower butt toward ground until you feel a stretch in thighs. Pulse, moving ever so slightly up and down, for 10 counts. Rest for 30 to 60 seconds; repeat.
2. ABC leg raise Benefit: Stretches and strengthens feet and ankles How to do it: Extend right leg, point toes and "write" the entire alphabet in lowercase letters, using right leg as the "pen." Rest for 30 seconds. Repeat alphabet using uppercase letters and a larger range of motion. Repeat with left leg.
3. Staggered-leg wall squat Benefit: Stretches calves and strengthens glutes and thighs How to do it: Stand facing a wall or bar, an arm's length away. Take a step back with right leg and lower into a staggered squat. Lean into the wall to feel a deep stretch in lower calf. Hold for 30 seconds. Repeat on the opposite side.
