Move Targets: Inner and Outer Thighs
Step 1: Come to your side on the floor with your bottom arm extending overhead and your head resting upon it. Place your other hand in front of you for balance. Lift your top leg so it's about 1 to 2 feet apart from the bottom leg. Hold it here. This isometric hold will work the outer thigh of the top leg.
Step 2: Without moving the top leg, exhale and lift the bottom leg until it makes contact with the top leg. This contraction will work the inner thigh of bottom leg. If you feel your bottom hip dig into the mat, you can bring the legs forward slightly until it stops or try putting folding your mat in half for extra cushioning. Inhale and release the bottom leg first, then the top.
