Bring on the bar
This all-in-one exercise tones your thighs, works your core and gives your butt a boost, too.
Stand comfortably a few inches away from a ballet barre or piece of furniture that is about hip-height. Hold onto it with both hands while keeping your back straight. Place your feet in a narrow V shape so that your heels are together and your big toes are about three inches apart. Step back with your right foot and rest it on the floor about six inches behind you. With your knees relaxed, raise that foot a few inches off the floor in short pulses, keeping your posture tall and your glute and ab muscles engaged.
Pulse 20 times, then return your foot to the starting position. Switch legs and repeat with the opposite foot.
Repeat three times for a total of 60 pulses on each side.
