Slim Your Thighs With These Exercises
As we get closer to summer and start trying on our summer clothes, have you noticed it seems harder to get into our shorts and jeans? If this is the case for you, the most likely culprit is the thighs. Thighs are one of those areas where excess fat can accumulate. If you spend a good portion of the day behind a desk, your thighs tend to get impacted as they are not being used. So how does one tone their thighs?

By Christina Carlyle
Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart with your toes pointed out. Hold your abs in tight and inhale and you lower your booty straight down, keeping your upper body upright. Lower until your butt is in line with your knees, then exhale and return to the starting position to complete one rep. Do 15 reps to complete your set.
PULSING LEG LIFTS
You can do pulsing leg lifts lying on your back, from your side (inner and outter thighs), from a table top position or standing. Pulse your legs up and down with pointed and flexed toes. Do as many as you can until you feel the burn then start counting to 10 (for beginners) up to 30+… or as many as you can do while maintaining proper form. Do the same number of reps with both legs to complete your set.
STABILITY BALL LEG CIRCLES
Lie back on the mat with your arms by your sides and your palms facing down. Begin by pointing with your left foot, as if reaching out with your toes toward the ceiling, and rotate your leg slightly outward. Inhale, and start tracing the alphabet onto the ceiling with your left leg, moving your whole leg, but keeping your hips still. Don’t lift your left hip off the floor. Continue until you’re done with the letter ‘Z’. Then switch and repeat the alphabet with your right leg to complete your set.
