MOVE: Jiggly Thigh-Busting Ballerina Leg Lift
WHAT IT DOES: You think this exercise is all thighs, thighs, thighs (that’s where you feel the burn), but it helps whittle your waist, too!It tightens and tones the muscles while elongating the limbs. If your body isn’t burning by the time you’re through, you’re not giving it your all. “Remember, if your muscles are not burning, they’re not working,” says Bowers. “You can always stop and take a five minute stretch, but otherwise, keep going. I find it’s easier to keep it up if you don’t stop!” 
 
HOW TO DO IT (watch the moving image above to see Mary Helen Bowers demonstrating the move)
On your right side, bend your knees and bring your legs in to a 45 degree angle from your torso. Find a comfortable position for your upper body. You’ll complete the sequence on your right side, and then your left side. 
Lift your left leg and straighten it, pointing your foot as you straighten it and stretching through the knee. Bend knee back above the right leg, keeping it raised. At the same time, position your left arm so it’s parallel to your extended leg. As you bend your knee, raise your arm up over your head. Keep your hips parallel, your shoulders down and your stomach pulled in tight. Do eight counts, four sets.
Hold your leg out straight for one last count of eight.
