Stronger, longer, leaner thighs - yup, we can help you get those. Here, our best upper-leg-exercises.
Toe Squat with Overhead Reach
This exercise is a cousin to yoga's utkatasana. When you press your knees firmly together, imagine you're holding something precious between them: A love letter. A favorite photo. A sandwich.
- Come into a chair pose, abs engaged, inner knees and ankles touching, hips lowered to a half-squat, dumbbell over your head.
- Now come up onto the balls of your feet and keep your lower legs controlled as you lower and lift your butt, about 4 inches.
- Take your time and keep yourself steady as you lift and lower, between 8 and 12 times.
