This exercise tones your inner and outer thighs but it also strengthens your core. You can work up to using two 5 pound weights with this exercise or do it without.
1. Stand upright with a 5 pound weight in each hand.
2. Step your left leg behind into a curtsy lunge behind your right leg. Your weight should be on your right leg and the toes of your left foot. Keep your front knee in line with your ankle.
3. Then stand back up and raise your left leg out to the side as you put all your weight on your right leg. Lift that left leg as high to the side as you can while standing up straight.
4. Do 30 of these with your left leg and then do 30 with your right leg. Try to do this as many times today as possible.
