2-Move Thigh Slimming Challenge

Sculpt and tone!

Thighs are often cited as a problem area for women. In order to get lean, strong legs, it’s essential to work them out regularly, toning muscle while burning excess fat.

For this thigh slimming challenge, you’ll have four weeks to sculpt and shape your thighs, and you’ll do it using only two moves. Single-leg deadlifts work your hamstrings while helping to stretch them out. This helps the muscle grow stronger without getting too tight. Lunges with front kicks are a great calorie-torching cardio move that also tones your hamstrings and quads.

Get ready to take on our 4-week thigh slimming challenge!

What You’ll Need: (optional) pair of light dumbbells for deadlifts. The single-leg deadlifts can also be performed without weights.

What to Do: Complete the assigned number of repetitions. Complete a round with your right leg, immediately followed by a round with your left leg. Repeat 3 to 5 times per week.
