Lets blast those thighs.
Here is a neat little Pilate's exercise to shape up those thighs. I would advise using a mat just to cushion the body from the floor, if you have not got a mat ,a nice soft rug will be ok but I would recommend getting a mat, these are readily available and do not cost too much.
Pilate’s exercises are amazing at helping to tone and shape your butt, hips, and thighs. If you want to get these areas of your body into great shape, Pilate's is the way to go by making it a part of your Lifestyle.
Thighs are a problem area for most women, especially the inner thighs. Pilate’s thigh lift exerecise's are a great way to tone this area. This is a quick little exercise to blast those thighs into shape.
You need to be on the floor for this exercise. Lie on your side with your head propped up by your arm and one leg stretched on top of the other.
Then take your top leg and place your foot on the ground in front of your hips. Place your hand through that leg to brace it, grasping your ankle. Tighten the thigh muscles on your other leg, and lift it about 4 inches from the floor. Hold for a few seconds, and then lower it. Repeat 10 times and then switch to do the other leg.
Remember if it hurts stop,check your technique, you should just feel a stretch and a bit of tension which is just bearable..but no pain.
Ok that's it for today, keep practising the Pilate's exercises.
Good Health To You All.
