Hip Bridge with a Squeeze
Why: We love the glute-strengthening hip bridge, but all it takes is a little squeeze to make this move just as effective for the inner thighs, too, says fitness expert Chris Freytag.
How: With your feet flat on the floor, place a rolled-up towel or small exercise ball between your bent knees. Squeeze the towel as you lift your butt to the sky, keeping it in line with your knees, and lower back down. Do 10 reps for 1 set.
Pilates Thigh Squeeze On All Fours
Why: When it comes to the inner thighs, Pilates is the way to go, Freytag says.
How: Get on all fours and place a small exercise ball between your knees. Keeping your arms in line with your shoulders, tuck your toes forward and inhale, expanding your torso. Exhale as you deepen your belly button into your spine, and lift your knees about an inch off of the ground. Continue to lengthen the spine as you squeeze the ball 3 times. Release the knees back down. Do 5 reps for 1 set.
