Thighs can benefit from a fitness ball workout. As an alternative to the adductor/abductor machines at the gym, try this: lie on the floor on your left side with the fitness ball on top of your right thigh. Use your right hand to hold the ball in place. Bend your left arm and prop your head on your left hand.
Lift the right leg, leading with the right heel, and use your right hand to hold the ball in place. Repeat 10-15 times, then switch sides.
