Intermediate

1. Extended Leg Curl

Targets hamstrings (back of thigh)
Lie faceup on floor with heels placed shoulder-width apart on a stability ball, arms at sides on floor, palms down. Lift hips toward ceiling and hold for 2 counts. Slowly pull ball toward body, keeping hips lifted, then roll it back toward start. Do 8 to 10 reps.

2. Single-Leg Wall Extension

Targets quads (front of thigh)
Stand with your back pressed into a wall, feet shoulder-width apart. Bend knees 90 degrees. From this position, straighten right leg, pointing toes. Hold for 3 counts and lower. Repeat for 8 to 10 reps; switch legs.

3. Ballerina Squat with Knee Bend

Targets adductors (inner thigh)
Stand with feet wider than shoulder-width apart, toes pointed out. Bend knees 45 degrees and hold. From here, shift your body weight to the left side, keeping left knee bent while straightening right leg. Hold for 1 count; switch sides, straightening left leg and bending right knee. Repeat; alternate legs for 8 to 10 reps per side.
