3. Inner Thigh Rhythm
Lying on your back, point your legs straight up to the ceiling and open your legs, then close them, similar to a clam shell. Repeat for 3 sets of 20 to target your inner thighs and see ultra-amazing results in a matter of weeks.

Get in first position with heels together, toes out. Next make sure your leg is straight and turned out at the hip, point your right toes out in front. Move your front leg clockwise in a semicircle. Now straighten your standing leg as you rotate to the back. Stand up straight, making sure to keep your shoulders down and chest up. Continue to put all the weight on your standing leg. Then, keeping your leg turned out, toe pointed, rotate it back counterclockwise until you’ve reached your starting position. Think of your inner thigh spinning outward the entire time. Plié your standing leg as you move to the front. Do 3 sets of 15 on each leg to achieve thinner and more toned thighs.
