This Pilates move is the ultimate prep for Spandex pants! It engages your glutes, inner thighs, and your abs for muscles that look firm and toned in those tight bottoms.
Lie facedown on the floor with your legs straight, toes pointed. Bend your elbows and stack one hand on top of the other, resting your chin on the back of your hands. Press your shoulders down and draw your abs in toward your spine as you lift your thighs off the floor as high as you can without moving the rest of your body.
Open your legs out slightly wider than hip-width apart. Squeeze your inner-thigh muscles together to 'beat' your heels. Continue tapping the insides of your feet and heels together quickly 20 times in a row.
