As the summer quickly approaches, so do shorter hemlines and skin-baring resort clothes. While we’re all about being proactive and staying healthy and strong all year round, we can’t help but think we need to step up our workout routine.

When it comes to lean, toned legs, it doesn’t actually have to be all squats and lunges, as yogi Kate Kendall demonstrates. Here’s an ultimate leg exercise that specifically targets the inner and outer thighs, bum, and calves. Say hello to heel lifts—simple, fun and effective, you’ll be feeling the burn in no time!
