An added bonus of this inner-thigh toner? It's a safe and effective way to build strength during pregnancy, says Elizabeth Ordway, founder of Movement Studio in Los Angeles.
To do it: Lie on right side, supporting head with bottom arm bent. Bend top leg and place foot firmly on the mat in front of bottom leg, holding on to ankle for support. Point bottom foot and lift leg up high.
In a swooping motion, trace a circle with lifted leg (lift up each time to initiate the circle and target the inner thigh more). "Imagine you are drawing circles on the back wall, lengthening the inner thigh, and keep abs pulled in tight and torso stable," Ordway says. Do 10 to 20 circles in each direction, and then switch sides and repeat.
