The 5-Minute Thigh Blaster That Julianne Hough Loves

Mar 13 2014 - 3:26pm

If you're a fan of Barry's Bootcamp, there's a good chance you may have found yourself sweating next to Julianne Hough. She's a regular at the popular fitness studio, and we were dying to know what exercises Julianne does to get those toned legs of hers. To find out, we talked to Barry's Bootcamp trainer Alycia Stevenin, who created this five-minute thigh-toning workout that's similar to the exercises done in a typical class. No equipment is needed — all you have to devote is five minutes to get it done! Alycia recommends making this workout more challenging by using eight- to 12-pound weights for the below exercises. If you don't have weights at home, use books, water bottles, or anything hefty and solid you can easily grip.
