Hi, I'm Kristen Rzasa, Owner InterPlay Health and Host on FTNS, World's First Fitness Radio. I'm here today a the Jazzercise Fitness Center in Stamford, Connecticut to talk about toning the skin on your thighs. Well, first what we really want to do is tone the muscle behind the skin. And I'm going to share three of my favorite toning exercises today. First, there's the lunge. Now, you want to start with your feet just a little more than hip width distance apart. You're going to take a large step forward with your right foot, slowly lower your body down as far down as you can comfortably do it. Then, squeezing the muscles in the legs, you're going to lift yourself back up out of that lunge and bring the right foot back to meet with the left. You want to make sure when you step forward, that you step far enough forward that your knee doesn't go past your toe. Then, repeat it on the other side. My second favorite is the plie. This is a dance-based leg strengthening move. You're going to keep your feet wide apart. In fact, you want to put your hands out to the side and make sure that your ankles are just underneath your wrist. You're going to lower yourself down and then slowly push back up. And you can repeat it as many times as you want until you really start to feel it in your legs. The third move is the wall squat. Now, you can do this with a resistance ball, which I like or you can do it without a ball. Stand a few feet away from the wall. You're going to keep your feet just about hip width distance apart with the ball or the wall behind your back, you're going to lower yourself down until your thighs are parallel to the floor, creating a 90 degree angle with your legs. And then, bring yourself back up. Again, do it as many times until you start to feel it in your legs. All of these exercises, you could use eight to 12 reps and do three sets as a guideline to get started. Those are some great leg exercises that you can use to tighten the muscles and make the skin appear firmer on your legs. Our legs are important, they keep us going everyday, so we want to take good care of them. That's how you tone the muscles in your thighs. I'm Kristen Rzasa here at the Jazzercise Center in Stamford, Connecticut.
