Get incidental with exercise: As a mom to an adorable toddler, the star has to get creative when she trains. Sometimes quick walks, easy hikes and trips to the playground are how she factors in her daily exercise.

Change it up: Carrie credits variety to keeping her metabolism fired up. The singer loves her regular strength sessions at the gym, but will also incorporate outdoor runs and other exercise disciplines into her routine.

Don’t overdo it: It may surprise her fans, but the super-toned singer only practices two scheduled fitness sessions a week. The rest of her days are spent with incidental activity and unscheduled exercise.

Here are three moves Carrie practices for killer thighs:

 

Standing Leg Lift

Stand with your elbows folded in front of you at shoulder height. Keeping your balance, lift one leg up and back behind you as high as you can. Pause for a moment then lower back down to your starting position. Aim for 3 sets of 10-16 reps with each leg.

Lunge And Lift
Stand with feet together and arms folded in front of you at shoulder height. Take a big step back with one foot and sink into a lunge until knees are bent to 90 degrees. Powerfully step back up and draw the elevated leg in front of your body. That’s one rep. Aim for 3 sets of 10-16 reps on each side.

Curtsy Lunge
Stand with feet hip-width apart and arms folded at shoulder height in front of you. Take a giant step diagonally back with one foot and cross it behind the other. Bend your knees as if curtsying. Return to starting position. Aim for 3 sets of 10-16 reps with each leg.
