Pilates Small Leg Circles are a great way to help you get toned, skinny legs. To do the Pilates Small Leg Circles Exercise, imagine your legs as paint brushes. Slowly, you will want to trace the outer edges of a small globe in front of you. To perform Pilates Small Leg Circles, you should have a mat and an (optional) resistance band. Doing small circles works your inner core, especially the abs that form your six pack. Small Leg Circles also work the:
