I practice 2 exercises for the inner side of thighs. It is most difficult to make this part of the leg look good as even if muscles are firm, the thigh may be fatty or flabby, swaying unpleasantly when you walk or run.
< If you are experiencing this kind of problem, it will be good to combine exercise and diet in order to reduce the subcutaneous fat and make the effect of the exercises visible. Cardio workouts are also good.
The first exercise for the inner side of thighs is spreading legs apart and bringing them back together. The exercise tightens also the abs muscles and the ones on the outer side of thighs and is therefore my favorite. I make a single exercise and work 3 groups of muscles at once!
Lie down on your back and place hands under your butt. Raise your legs straight up and try not to bend the knees. Keep your back flat on the floor to prevent the waist from straining. Move feet to the sides and bring them back together. Start by opening the legs a little apart and gradually increase the distance between them. This will protect the inner side of thighs from injury. Open the legs to the point of mild tension, not pain.
Breathe in when opening and breathe out when bringing legs together. Make 3 sets of 20 repetitions and rest 60 seconds between sets.
The second exercise for the inner side of thighs begins from a standing position. It tones up also the front thigh muscles, the abs and the butt. It is one of my favorite exercises.
Stand up and tighten your legs, abs and butt. Raise the leg to the side, bent at the knee, and kick at the top of the movement to fully extend the leg. Bring the leg back to the floor and repeat with the opposite leg. Alternate side way kicks on each leg. To keep your balance, place hands on your waist. Make 3 sets of 20 repetitions on each leg and rest 60 seconds between sets.
This exercise seems difficult at the beginning because:
- You have to keep your balance while standing on one foot and at the same time kicking sideways with the opposite foot.
- You have to quickly alternate legs and still keep your balance.
- You will be short of breath.
This however will develop your gravity center, tone up 3 muscle groups and increase the flow of oxygen in your body. Perform this exercise every day and you will feel the progress you are making. If unable to make 20 repetitions at the start, make 10 or as many as you can.
