#FlashbackFriday No More Saddlebags! Trim and Tone Thighs!

Denise Austin by Denise Austin | May 6, 2016 | Workouts

Do you want to slim those saddlebags and look great in shorts this summer? Here’s one of my favorite target toners for trimming those outer thighs!

In order to get toned thighs, let’s make sure we are doing this right! Good form and technique is so important. To really see results, be sure to keep your knee and wrist in a straight line. I encourage you to push yourself to really lift the leg higher and just to take your time. In this case, slower is better! And don’t forget to zip up those abs!

One of the best benefits of this particular body position to target the outer thighs is it also zeros in on the sides of the waistline too… Double the workout in half the time!!!!

Now it’s time for your trainers tip for the outer thigh toner. Let’s make sure you’re doing it correctly and effectively. First of all, your shoulder and your wrist is in a straight line, not out here. Keep it nice and tall. Then your knee and your wrists in a straight line, lift and lower the leg. Your goal here is to try to get that leg lifted and stay up like this. Don’t go into the shoulder, fall down like this. It’s all about lifting up and working the outer thighs. If you’re just starting out, go ahead and do the beginner one. This is a little easier. It’s still a very effective exercise to trim your outer thighs. Lift and lower. Slower is better. Really feel it, lengthen that leg. Pull in the belly button, zip up and engage the ab muscles. That’s it. What a great way to firm up those legs. Join me each and every day. I love you to worked out with me. Keep it up and I’ll see you right here on the next daily workout. Go out and make it a fabulous day. Bye Bye.
