Tone up your legs, burn and turn with our smart update on an old fave

Some things never change - we’ll always want toned abs, perfect pins and a perky bottom in time for summer. So why not work toward your summer goals with the help of a classic workout? You may have ditched your LBT (that’s legs, bum and turn, remember) class around the time you gave up leotards and scrunches, but this oldie is still a goodie.

Of course, a lot has changed since you first rocked up for an LBT session at your local leisure center and some of the moves from the popular ‘80s workout are now a little outdated. Plus, we now know that weight training and dynamic, explosive exercises will help to get your body looking smoking’ far quicker than an hour-long aerobics class, so we’ve updated this fitness favorite with some modern moves that really work.

Our retro revival is guaranteed to blast fat, sculpt your lower body and tighten your turn in time for you to rock your bikini on the beach. Try adding this workout to your regular routine three times a week for the best results... Leg warmers optional’
