This story is from our friends at Tone It Up! We’ll be sharing Tone It Up’s best fitness and healthy living tips every month. In today’s post, Karena and Katrina will be sharing their 3-Minute thighs workout, a routine that will give you strong, lean and toned thighs for summer and beyond…

Tone It Up's 3 Minute Thigh Workout!

Hey everyone, it’s Karena and Katrina here from Tone It Up! When putting together new workouts, one thing we always strive for is flexibility! Katrina and I have been traveling a lot this summer, so we’ve been reaching for simple, heart pumping routines we can complete anywhere, like this 3-minute thigh toner. Shorter routines like this are great on super busy days (lunch break sweat session, anyone?). They also make amazing add-ons to your current routine if you’re looking to give it a boost. These eight exercises are meant to be done at rapid-fire speed, with no rest in between so that you get that heart rate up while you work out your thighs and tone your lower body. Of course, if you have more time, go through the sequence up to four times through.

Ready to go? Grab a pair of 3-5 pound dumbbells for the first four exercises and get ready to feel the burn!

It's time to tone those thighs with this 3 minute workout from Tone It Up!

Be sure to pin this image so you can have it on hand the next time you head to the gym. Or, if you have 3-5 pound weights at home, this routine is a great one to do on your own (with an awesome workout playlist playing, of course).

Will you give this 3-minute thighs workout a try this summer?
