Thighs – Get ready to flash some flesh!

thigh exercisesWith the weather warming up and the summer season closing in fast, it’s time to get back to focusing on key areas of the body to tone up in time to flash the flesh.

Whether male or female, the main areas we all want to tone up pre-summer are:

  • Shoulders & arms
  • Back
  • Abs
  • Butt
  • Thighs

Of course, men and women will likely want slightly different end results, but ultimately it’s all about tightening and toning.

If we think of July as the beginning of summer (schools have finished and sunshine and warmth should definitely be upon us), that leaves us just 15 weeks to get each of those areas worked out … hard.

And we know that time is the major reason many people don’t workout, no matter how much they want to tone their body, which is why we’re giving you just 3 exercises per body part.

That’s right – 3.

So no excuses.

Want slimmer thighs this summer? Want toned thighs this summer?

Starting today with the thighs and working our way up, do these 3 exercises every day to get toned thighs by sizzling hot July.

Time per exercise: 60 seconds

Rest between exercises: 20 seconds

Number of sets: 2, daily

Lunge jump1. Jump lunges

Stand straight with arms by your side. Engage your core muscles, tuck your butt under and go down into a reverse lunge.

Hold for a second, then jump into the air, switching legs before landing into a reverse lunge on the opposite side.

Repeat for 60 seconds.

Squat jumps2. Jump squats

Stand straight with arms by your side. Engage your core muscles, tuck your butt under and lower your backside down until your thighs are parallel with the floor making sure your knees do not go over your toes.

Hold for a second, then jump up into the air before landing back down in a squat position.

Repeat for 6 seconds.

Leg raise3. Side leg raises

Stand straight with arms by your side. Engage your core muscles, tuck your butt under and raise your right leg up to the side.

Keep your standing leg bent slightly, and the raised leg straight.

Take it as high as comfortable, hold for a second then slowly lower to the floor.

Repeat the same movement on the opposite side.

Continue switching legs for 60 seconds.

After one full set, repeat exercises for a second set.

Next week, we’ll add 3 of the best butt exercises to this routine.
