LADING

A Workout that Targets the Thighs

Today we are focusing specifically on our inner and outer thighs. Today’s workout will be on the floor so let’s get down to business!

  • Lay on your left side with your palm up cradling your head for support.
  • Your hips should be aligned, and your left leg bent comfortably for balance.
  • The right arm should be palm down in front of your abdomen for stability and support, and your right foot should be straight and toe pointed.
  • This is the base position for our first workout.

Looking for more of a challenge? Try adding ankle weights and using a resistance band that you would tie comfortably above your knees.
