Pretzel lifts are a great way to tone up your lower body and get rid of thunder thighs

(which I definately have). Its not too late for me to get my body in shape for my bathing suit.

From Shape Magazine's website:

LIE ON THE FLOOR on your left side, knees bent 90 degrees and left leg in front of you. Lean on your left forearm, elbow aligned under shoulder, and rest right hand on hip.

PLACE A WEIGHTED BALL behind your right knee and raise leg to hip height, foot flexed and slightly higher than your knee
KEEP YOUR SHOULDERS and hips square as you lift your right leg a few inches. Lower leg to hip height and repeat. Switch sides to complete set.
