3. Ball Leg Lifts:

Using an exercise ball when strength training is a great way to add a little bit more challenge to basic exercises. Since you have to work hard to keep the ball in place, you end up using more muscle groups. This exercise will tone your thighs, especially your inner thighs, and also your core.

How to do:

  • Lie on your side on the floor with your arms crossed in front of your body. If this is uncomfortable, bend your bottom elbow and rest your head on your hand.
  • Place a large exercise ball in between your feet, and slowly lift the ball up toward the ceiling using only your hips and butt. Return to the start position. This counts as one repetition.
  • Complete three sets of 15 reps.

4 . Side Shuffle Switch:

  • Stand with your feet together, arms by your sides.
  • ‘Shuffle’ to your right by taking three quick steps to the side (right, left, right), and then lift your left knee up.
  • swinging your right arm forward.
  • Immediately reverse your shuffle (left, right, left) and land with your right knee up, left knee bent, swinging your right arm forward.
  • Repeat 20 times in a row as fast as you can, alternating sides.

  • Press through your heels and straighten your legs to complete the rep. Do 10 to 15 reps.
