A perfect exercise to TONE and TIGHTEN the INNER THIGHS!

 

Toning Exercise for Inner Thighs – Dumbbell Plie Squat

Burns: 90 Calories in 15 minutes

How To: Begin with wide stance, toes pointing out and dumbbell in hand. Keep your core tight as you squat down until your knees are at a 90 degree angle. Alternate hands or hold the dumbbell with both hands at the same time. 

Muscles Used: Quadriceps, Glutes, Hamstrings

NOTE:
This exercise is not intended for single workout use. The calories burned is used to show the difference between each exercise. When you look at the Squat for example, it burns so many more calories than the bicep curl. I want you ladies to see why I do pair certain exercises together.
This way, you ladies will be able to look at the exercise library (soon to come) and say, ” ok, I want to burn a lot of calories this week. I am going to put this exercise in this week (squat) and this one (lunge) and I’ll add a less calorie burning one (bicep curl) so I don’t get too tired….”  You will be able to create your own workouts and have a strategic look at what you want to include in your circuits.

    Hi there, just to be sure I have the right amount of sets and reps, should I be doing 3-4 sets of 12-15 reps?
