    Maximum effects in a short amount of time? Please, yes. That’s just what Melissa Wood-Tepperberg, the brains of the MWH Method for long, slim lines, has in store for us in this bite-sized thigh exercise. “In the quickest and shortest amount of time,” she promises, “we are going to sculpt that beautiful muscle tone.” (Using our native tongue.)

    “Today, we’ll perform an inner/outer thigh power sequence for around five minutes. I’m using one-pound weights, but at MWH, I’m a huge proponent of using what you already have on hand, she adds. Meaning: Using only your body weight for this exercise is completely acceptable. Grab a mat and proceed as described below.
