The muffin top stops here! Find your dream denim and fit into it fast with our targeted toning exercises and fat-melting cardio plans. This plan is designed to slim you all over but especially targets your abs, butt and thighs.
Side Lunge with Teacup Raise
Targets: Shoulders, hips, butt, inner thighs, and legs
Holding a dumbbell in each hand, arms by sides, stand with feet hip-width apart.
- Lunge to right side with right leg, toes pointing right, keeping left leg straight as you raise left arm directly out to side, palm facing floor, pinkie knuckle slightly higher than that of forefinger. (MAKE IT EASIER: Complete arm raise from standing start position, then perform side lunge with arms by sides.)
- Step back to start, lowering arm.
- Do 10 reps. Switch sides, repeat.
Tip: By raising the pinkie knuckle slightly, you really work the medial deltoid --
that often-missed V-shape muscle at the top of your upper arm. For extra toning, lift both arms out to sides each rep.
