Would you rather have the thighs of a ballerina, a bodybuilder, or a flexible yoga master? Perhaps your goal is to build legs of a skater or skier. It doesn’t really matter. If you’re trying to shape lean, tight legs, the best exercises borrow from each of these activities.
So do you have to master each sport to get a better body? Nope. Simply train using techniques from each discipline to get strong, fit thighs that look fabulous.
Start with your legs slightly wider than hip distance apart in “second position.” Feet are rotated out slightly so that your knees bend directly over your toes. Lower your body weight, keeping the pelvis under your shoulders and thighs rotated out. Lift your body weight to return to the starting position, and then repeat. For a greater challenge, lift the heels off the ground as you move your body in and out of plié position.
