Stand with knees bent. Grab CrossToner by the long handles in a similar way to the standard outer thigh and glute exercise, with short handles pointing down. Place short handles over your thighs just above the knees. Adjust the width of your feet and knees so CrossToner is under a small amount of tension, ideally about shoulder width apart. Now lower to a squat position.
Keep a steady downward force with the long handles to keep the CrossToner positioned on the thighs. To begin, take a sideways step to the right using your right leg to push the CrossToner apart (don’t push in with your arms..that’s cheating).
Maintain a consistent knee bend and resist the urge to squat lower or higher. After that first step outward with the right leg, take an equal step inward with your left leg, releasing most of, but not all of the tension on the CrossToner.
Repeat this stepping motion 5-10 times to the right. Then, reverse the process back to the left for 5-10 steps.
Same as the standard CrossToner outer thigh and glute exercise, only this variation is performed while standing, with knees slightly bent. In yoga, it’s known as the chair pose because it resembles a posture you’d be in as you just start to sit down in a chair.
While in the chair position, grab CrossToner by the long handles and place short handles over your thighs just above the knees. Slowly move knees away from each other until long handles are touching each other. Hold for 1 second, then slowly release.
Same as the Chair Pose, except you’ll be in a lower “squat” position. This variation targets the entire set glutes and thighs.
Same as the standard CrossToner outer thigh and glute exercise, except you’re seated on the floor.
