Exercises We Love: Leg Extensions

side lungeLeg Extensions strengthen your thigh muscles, providing protection for your knees and extra stamina for rolling around in bed. This is another simple exercise that you can do anywhere, anytime.

How It Works:
Sit on the floor with your legs straight in front of you, hands touching the floor on either sides of your legs toward your knees. Raise one leg to about the level of your elbow. Lower it. Raise it again. Repeat 10 times then switch to the other leg. Do at least three reps.

If you want to get fancy, you can strengthen different muscles by doing the same exercise while lying on your side, and even on your stomach.
