You'll need a set of 3- or 5-pound dumbbells and a step bench. This targets your inner thighs, hips, calves, chest, shoulders, and core. Do 15 reps on each leg.
Standing Fly: You will need a set of 3 or 5-pound dumbbells for this exercise. Stand sideways next to a step bench or a flight of stairs and place your right foot up on the step. Keep your feet wide apart and your toes turned out 45 degrees. Holding a dumbbell in each hand, extend your arms in front of you at chest height with your elbows slightly bent. Press the weights out to the sides while lowering your hips into a plie. Straighten your legs and bring your arms back together. You'll do 15 reps on this side before switching to the other leg. Now, switch sides, so your left leg is up on the step and do 15 more reps of the plie with fly. The standing fly targets your inner thighs, calves, hips, chest, shoulders, and core. To make this exercise easier, you could lower yourself only halfway down into a semi-plie. You could also eliminate the weights keeping your hands on your hips instead.
