Margie Weiss: My name is Margie Weiss and this is Fix-it Zone Fitness. The area that we're going to work in this exercise is the inner thigh. So, what we're going to do is take the hand weights, whether you have a light one or a slightly heavy one or no weights at all.
Put the hands behind the back and lift them so that it's up over the hip into the lower back. Then straddle your legs fairly wide, the longer your legs are, the wider the legs have to be and turn your toes out. You're going to become a tabletop, so your back it flat. Then all we're going to do is with our right leg, bend it, and then stand half way back up, your back is still parallel to the ground as long as you can. So, you bend the leg and you straighten them, and then you bend the other leg and straighten, and bend and straighten. Feel as if you're drawing up and in from the inner thigh rather than the top of the thigh, which you are going to use too, but we're trying to think about the inner thigh, especially on the rise. Let's pulse it on the right, so we're going down and down, back is flat, belly is in, shoulders are low.
Then you're going to take it to the left. Take it over and over. Generally you do about eight of each repetitions before you move on, then we're going to go from right to left. Pretend like you're skating. You never stand up and you use your inner thighs. So, if you've done eight singles, eight pulses on the right and left, and then eight side to sides, you can then start the first one over again. So, give me one right and one left. Now, you can do these maybe for one set of the three different exercises, two sets or three. As you're finished, you're going to gently bring one hand down, put your hand on your thigh, other hand on your thigh, and then you got to slowly walk your feet, and not the most elegant exit out of the movement, especially if you've got a slippery floor, shaking out the legs just a little bit and the shoulders if you're holding on to a weight.
This is for your inner thigh, and again, you decide how many sets, but you don't want to do more than eight of each on each side, especially if you're doing the pulses on one side versus the pulses on the other side when you're first beginning a workout.
