Exercises to shape your thighs

 

Exercise 1
Position. Lying down on your side on a mat, position your head on your folded arm, stretch out the leg in contact with the floor and bend the knee of the other leg in front of your thigh. Attach a 1kg ankle weight around your ankle.
Movement. Raise and lower the stretched leg evenly and vigorously. Breathe out as you raise the leg and breathe in to lower it.
Repetitions. 2 to 3 sets of 30 reps on each side.

Exercise 2
Position. Standing up, place a stick between your shoulder blades to stop you from arching your back.
Movement. Lunge forward, bending and lowering one knee towards the floor, then return to a standing position. Breathe in as you lunge and breathe out as you return to the starting position.
Repetitions. 2 to 3 sets of 30 reps on each side.
