5 Exercises for Leaner Legs

Winter, spring, summer, fall – it’s always a good time for leaner legs! Just when you think you can put the shorts away and forget about them, out come the jeans that might not slide up as quickly as you’d like.

Well, then time to get at it! Let’s create something a little leaner, stronger, and get rid of some of that extra “stuff’ on the outer edge that we don’t like so much!

This workout gives you five great exercises that will tone and tighten your thighs.

Combine this five minute routine three days a week with two to three days of cardio a week and clean eating, and you’ll be ready for lean jeans and short shorts in no time!

  1. Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder distance apart and toes turned out. Bend knees and lower torso into a plié while keeping your back straight.
  2. Squeeze your glutes and inner thighs and come to standing while lifting one leg out to the side. This works the outer thigh muscles. Then return to your plié and repeat on the other side.

Perform 12 per side – thats 24 total!
