Why: “Ballet-inspired moves are often great for your inner thighs,” says Freytag. This is one of her favorites.
How: Stand with feet about 3 feet apart, toes pointed out. Lower down until your thighs are nearly parallel to the floor. Push yourself back up to standing as you squeeze your inner thighs. That’s one rep; do 15 for one set. Repeat the same move, but raise the right heel as you lower down. Do 15 reps. Repeat the same move, but raise your left heel as you lower your body down. Do 15 reps. That’s 1 set.
Why: You’ll really feel this exercise in your inner thighs, but you’ll also be working your core and glutes, too, says Freytag.
How: Stand with your feet underneath your hips, then sweep your right leg forward and backward. Your toes should be pointed as you engage your glutes and inner thighs. Do 5 reps, then sweep it out to the side for another 5 reps. Repeat on the other leg for 1 set.
