Tone the Sides of Your Legs

This is a low-impact way to tone those hard-to-reach sides of your legs. 

Side Leg Lift
Begin on the ground, rolled over to one side.  To help activate your core (side oblique muscles), prop you head up using your hand (or just prop up on one elbow).  Extend both legs out through your heels, making your legs as long as they can be; this will get all of your leg muscles (in both legs) working.  Keeping your legs strong, and your belly pulled in to support your lower back, lift your top leg up to the ceiling.  Make sure to keep your toes pointing to the side, keeping your foot parallel to the ground, to isolate the sides of your thigh.  Do 5 slow reps, followed by 15-25 fast; alternating sides; go for 3-5 rounds.
