Workout Wednesdays: Tough, Toned Thighs
Every girl wants to have toned thighs, especially during the summer when shorts, skirts and swimsuits are the norm. But do you really know how to target those problem areas? Try these:
Inner Thigh Sculptor. Lie on your left side and prop yourself up on your elbow, cradling your head in your hand while also giving your neck support. Fold your right leg in front of the left. Your right foot should be in approximate alignment with the left knee. Once you’ve achieved this position, raise and lower your reclining leg (left). Try for three sets of 20 then switch sides.
Wall Sit. A very simple exercise that firms up those thighs! Place your back against the wall. Lower yourself from the hips until your legs form a 90-degree angle. In this position your body should appear to be sitting. Hold this position for as long as possible.
Saddle Bag Buster. Lying on your left side and propping your head up on your elbow, raise your right leg then lower it two times. Repeat for as long as possible then switch sides.
Plié Squat. In a standing position, part your legs approximately two feet at the heels. Your toes should be pointing outward and hands should be on your waist. Bend your knee and lower your body at the hips until your thighs are horizontal then raise your body back to its starting position. Repeat for two sets of 20.
