Effective squat with the help of an exercise ball
When it comes to shaping thinner and attractive thighs, there is no other exercise which is better than doing a tight squat.
Here’s how to do a squat with an exercise ball:Put an exercise ball between the curve of your lower back and the wall.
Then stand with your feet placed at shoulder width.
Bend your knees five to ten inches down, while keeping your shoulders leveled and your hips in a square position.
Remain in this position for three seconds and then get back up.
Begin with five repetitions and work your way up to twelve. Rest for half a minute and then repeat another set.
Okay, ladies, there is a lot going on here — your torso tightens real hard, your arms are curling, and your legs are kicking back.
To start with, it is good to watch the instructional video twice just to catch on, but the Flamingo Balance exercise has a very high potential for tightening your thighs: you need to have a slow tempo, but steady and definitely keep on going.
So don’t forget to be determined and motivated.

Stand with your left hand on your hip, and hold a dumbbell with your right hand. Lean your body slightly forward, and lift your left foot behind you to about the height of the hips.
At this moment, move the right arm forward, turning your palm to the ceiling and performing the biceps curl. Touch your toes back down for a moment and repeat this twelve times.
Be sure to keep your left leg straight while your right knee is bending. Then switch sides and stand with your left foot forward.
Take the dumbbell with your left hand, and hinging forward raise your right leg up behind you up to the height of your hips.
At the same time, lift your left arm forward, and turn your palm to face the ceiling, and finally do a biceps curl.
Touch your toes back down for a moment, and repeat the procedure twelve times.
