Do 30 reps. Change your position so that your left leg is in front and repeat, lifting your right leg.
More celebrity workout tips:
• Rest in between sets for shorter periods of time at the beginning of your workout. Rest for about 20 to 30 seconds at the beginning and increase the rest to 40 to 60 seconds as your muscles become more tired. This forces your muscles to work harder and improves results while cutting down your workout time.
