This Pilates-Inspired Workout Just Uses 1-Pound Ankle Weights to Toast Your Legs and Core

If you’re looking for an effective way to use those ankle weights you have lying around, try this Pilates-inspired legs and core workout from Pilates instructor, 200-hour yoga teacher, and NASM-certified trainer Alexa Idama of @lowimpactfit. It’s the perfect muscle-strengthening workout to do at home when you’re short on time. It includes these five exercises using one-pound ankle weights:

Directions: Complete five to 10 reps per side, focusing on proper form.

  1. Alternating arms thigh stretch
  2. Kneeling side-kick lift and lower
  3. Kneeling push-up + leg extension
  4. Hot potato
  5. Double leg stretch

Idama said in the caption, “The feedback that I get most often when working with clients is ‘that was so much harder than it looked!’ As innocent as these look, these moves definitely had my hamstrings cramping and core on fire.” So you’ll definitely be feeling this one tomorrow!
