1. Pilates Inner Thigh Leg Lifts

Pilates is a killer workout for your core, and your inner thighs are a key stabilizing muscle in many of the movements. You may actually feel your inner thigh muscles working harder than your abdominals. This little burner is easy to do and is one of thebest exercises to slim thighs.

To do it:​Lay on your side, stretching our your bottom leg so that it’s straight and cross your top leg over it resting either your knee or foot on the floor. Rest your hand on your arm, or prop your head up with your hand.
Inhale, and then as you exhale lift your bottom leg up keeping it straight and holding you core tight. Inhale as you lower back down.
Repeat for 10-15 reps, and then switch sides.


2. Froggy Squat


This fun movement is a calorie burner as well, so be prepared to rev your heart rate and target every muscle in your lower body at the same time!
To do it:
Stand up straight with your feet wider than hip distance apart. Keeping your tummy tight, bend your knees and push your gluts back, pressing your knees out and reaching your hands to the floor.
Lower as far as possible while keeping your upper body lifted.
In one fast movement straighten your legs and hips, exploding off your feet and jump into the air bringing your feet together and hands overhead.
Land with your feet back wide, and immediately drop into a squat.
Repeat 10 to 15 times, and then take a break and catch your breath –you earned it!  Continue Reading  >> Page 2
