3 Moves We Do For Toned Outer Thighs!By Katrina Scott on
A few weeks ago, we shared 3 moves to tone your inner thighs. Now, you know we've got to tell you all about those outer thighs, too! We always design your leg and booty routines to hit every angle of your gorgeous lower bod, but it's also great to give a little extra love to certain muscles. Your inner thigh is made up of a muscle called vastus medialis, while your outer thigh is called the vastus lateralis. Most people have a stronger medialis muscle than lateralis, which can lead to imbalances. These 3 simple moves focus on strengthening your vastus lateralis to even out your thigh muscle strength and sculpt sleek and sexy legs!

Booty Band Squat
Tones your booty and outer and inner thighs!
The key to toning both your outer and inner thighs while performing a squat is to push your knees slightly out while lowering down. Your inner thigh tends to be stronger than your outer, which causes your knees to sink in toward center. Wrap a Tone It Up Booty Band just above your knees to help you push out and work those outer thighs even more.
