3 Super-Productive Exercises To Tone Sagging Leg Skin, Trainer Says

If you're dealing with sagging leg skin and would like to tighten things up, you're not alone. Growing older causes your body to slow down the amount of collagen it produces, which is key in providing your skin moisture and elasticity. This in turn can result in sagging skin. Losing a significant amount of weight can also cause your skin to sag. But chin up, because there are some super-productive exercises you can do to tone sagging leg skin, and we have them here for you to start

We chatted with Victoria Brady about her top picks and exactly how to do them. Brady is a personal trainer on Fyt, the nation's largest personal training service that makes fitness under the expert guidance of an in-person or virtual, certified fitness professional convenient and accessible for everyone.

Read on to learn more about the most effective movements that will help you tone sagging leg skin. And next, be sure to check out The 6 Best Exercises for Strong and Toned Arms in 2022, Trainer Says.

Sumo Squats

This is the ultimate toning exercise, as it targets all muscle groups in your legs. Sumo squats work your hamstrings, quadriceps, hip flexors, glutes, hip adductors, and calves.

To perform this movement, you'll want to turn your feet out, assuming a wide stance. "Keeping the knees aligned with the toes, bend your knees, and lower your body into a squat position while holding a proud chest," Brady instructs. "With your back straight and core tight, raise back up to the starting position to complete one rep." Perform 3 sets of 10 reps.

Around The World Lunges

If you haven't performed around the world lunges before, this exercise is a combo of three different lunges. It's another movement that targets all the muscle groups in your legs.

You'll begin with your feet positioned hip-width distance apart and your arms in front of you. Do a forward lunge by bringing your left foot forward, making sure your knee doesn't reach over your toes. Kneel over the top of your back leg, keeping your body tall, and then return.

Next up is a side lunge. Brady explains, "With your left foot facing forward, step out to the side, ensuring that your foot, knee, and hip are all in line. Squat down on your left leg while bending at the hips and extending the right leg. Press off your left leg to return to the standing position."

Lastly, you'll complete a reverse lunge. Begin in a standing position, then bring your left leg back, and grace your toes to the ground. "Bend both knees as you move into a lunge position," Brady instructs. "Lower your body until the left lower leg is almost touching the floor. Return to standing by extending the hip and knee of your right leg and bringing your left leg forward."

You'll repeat the three lunges on the right side to wrap up 1 rep. Perform 4 sets of 10 reps.

Resistance Loop Band Exercises

Incorporating tension or resistance with a loop (or mini) band during this particular exercise targets more muscles and increases strength. Brady tells us some of the absolute best toning exercises that utilize a loop band are:

Squat Pulse: As per Brady, "Place bands around your mid-lower thighs. With your feet hip-width apart and arms stretched out in front of your chest, go down into a squat. Driving your feet into the ground, pulse up and down a few inches." Complete 3 sets of 20 reps.

Seated Hip Abductors: As per Brady, "Sit upright in a chair with the loop band around your lower thighs (closer to your knees). Slowly push your knees out to the side, and bring them back in a control motion to complete one rep." Complete 3 sets of 12 reps.
