Right up there with the belly, the thighs are a region that most women love to hate. And while you can’t spot reduce (heard that before?), you can develop more lean muscle in a targeted area.

These moves go beyond traditional leg lifts to slim and shape your inner thighs from every angle. Do these 10 exercises one after another with no rest in between. Then repeat the circuit one or two more times. Do this full workout three or four days a week.
Another option: Pick 3-4 of your favorite moves and add them into your existing routine for an extra dose of thigh toning.
