Most women are focused on strengthening and toning their upper body but if you want to achieve a well-toned physique, you should also focus on working on your lower body. Exercising your thighs, quads, and calves are all well and good but don’t forget your inner thighs too. There are many exercises that you can do to train your inner thighs but if you are looking for those that will really give your muscles the burn that they need, try these exercises out.
- Coassack squat. Stand with your feet wider than your shoulders with your hands relaxed by your sides. Squat as low as you can to your left while your right leg is extended and toes pointing upwards. Raise your arms in front of you at chest height. Go back to your first position by pushing down on your left foot. Do the same to your right to complete one rep. Do 10 reps.
- Jump squat. Squats are perfect for toning your leg muscles but when it comes to working your inner thighs, you will need to up the ante in your squats. One way to do this is to perform jump squats. Stand with your feet slightly wider than your hips and toes pointing slightly away from you. Bend knees to go into a squat with your knees not going beyond your toes. Jump up explosively then, upon landing, sink immediately into a squat. Do 10 reps.
- Tree lean to side lunge. This exercise is not just for your inner thighs but your core, hips, as well as your entire lower body. Stand tall with your arms raised overhead and your legs and feet together. Flex your spine laterally so that your arms and shoulders are reaching to the left while your hips are swaying to the right. Sweep your arms up and over to create a half circle toward the right while your left leg steps out to go into a side lunge. Your left hand should be placed on your left thigh while your right is pressed down on the floor. Push yourself back up while circling your arms back up to go into the tree lean pose. Do 10 reps on this side then do the same on the opposite side.
- Flamingo balance. Here’s another challenging workout that will test your inner thigh muscles. To start this exercise, stand straight with a dumbbell in each hand. Shift your weight to your left foot while raising your right leg behind you a few inches off the floor. Tilt forward at the hips to lower the weights close to the floor while extending your right leg behind you for balance. Go back to your first position and repeat 10 times. Switch leg and repeat.
These inner thigh workouts are guaranteed to reduce that excess fats in your thighs. Make sure that you are following proper form for each exercise to work the most out of your muscles.
